WATCH: Lava "blob" consumes car in Hawaiian community

Time-lapse video shows the Kilauea lava flow's destructive path across a neighborhood

Posted: May 7, 2018 8:06 PM

It looks like something out of a science fiction B-movie. But this "blob" is real; very dangerous, and very destructive.

Incredible time-lapse video shows Kilauea volcano's lava flow slowly crossing a street in the Leilani Estates subdivision, engulfing an abandoned car.

Some of the more than 1,700 residents of the Hawaii community have been allowed to return for a second day to briefly check on their property.

Hawaii County Civil Defense officials say home owners have permission to return only between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. every day until further notice.

As of Monday, lava has destroyed 35 structures.
