Honolulu sources added that scientists in Hawaii have captured rare images of blue methane flames burning from cracks in the pavement as Kilauea volcano gushes lava in the background. Meanwhile the photos and video offer a look at a new dimension in the volcano's weeks-long eruption.
Moreover the volcano produces methane when hot lava buries and burns plants and trees and the gas flows through the ground and up through existing cracks. According to report the US Geological Survey scientist Jim Kauahikaua (COW-ah-hee-COW-ah) told reporters it's just the second time he's ever seen blue flames during an eruption. Further he said it was dramatic and eerie.
Moreover the methane can seep through cracks
several feet away from the lava. Furthermore the Geological Survey scientist
Wendy Stovall says the methane can cause explosions when it's ignited while
trapped underground. Blasts can toss rocks several feet.
