If it isn’t obvious already, there’s one more reason not to go near the lava that has already covered nearly ten square miles of Kilauea Volcano’s Eastern Rift Zone on the southeastern corner of Hawaii’s Big Island: you might not be able to out-run it.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that “standing waves” were visible in a channel of lava flowing at speeds up to 17 miles per hour. Of course, the eruption slows down as it spreads out, forming so-called “pahoehoe” flows that creep along. But it’s important to know just how fast the stuff can move because there’s no reason a channel can’t suddenly change.
