At just before 1.48 the ground is a bit soft and they shouldn't go any further... 

You wouldn't get me going anywhere near it.
 

I'd love to be there right now. It's for that reason that E.Kamchatka has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. I've been on recent larva flows in Costa Rica and Iceland but have yet to see a current eruption. One of my dreams. I love seeing the power of the Earth, whether that is an earthworm or a volcano, all awesome stuff.

So ... where does all this lava go then?  I kind of half expect a load of cleaners to turn up and shift it all off roads like it was a spilt lorry load of beans or something.  I guess they will have to re-do google route planners.

Is the Hawaii volcano a type that doesn't generate pyroclastic flows? Can't see how people could live so close to it if that could happen....

Correct. The Lava is very runny so it's unlikely for enough pressure to build up enough to get the explosive release needed for a pyroclastic flow. 

I'd love to go there and see it.

I was 40 km away from a small eruption on mt etna a few years ago and the windows were rattling all night with the explosive force of  the eruptions. Like a very loud thunderstorm.

There's loads of earthworms down my allotment. I wouldn't say there that powerful but they do make little worm casts.

As per NTB's comment - does create lots of fissures down from the cone where the law flows, a few days ago I saw a map of previous fissure locations and at the time seemed to be following the same pattern / location of flows, so it is not exactly as if they don't know where the really vulnerable locations are. There are steam events though that can be somewhat explosive where water bearing rock comes in contact with the magma body,

Imagine being an earthorm and having to burrow through soil. Quite a bit of power there.

      On what planet is this sensible?  Do they think these people will return home or disappear into the woodwork?

      UK fruit and vegetable growers will be able to recruit non-EU migrants as seasonal workers after Brexit under a new pilot scheme.
      Ministers say the initiative between spring 2019 and December 2020 will help tackle labour shortages during peak production periods.
      The visas for up to 2,500 workers a year will last for six months.
      The National Farmers' Union had expressed fears staff shortages could hamper the harvesting of produce.
      Farms have been reporting a slowdown in EU labour since the referendum.
       
      hereks a plan.  Why not pay enough to attract local labour?  The Torres spent 30 years telling us that free markets were the way to go.  Suddenly, all the markets need propping. 
      Whats that you say?  They lied to us?  No.  I don’t believe it.

      The children of illegal immigrants who came to the UK on holiday and later tried to claim asylum are being paid £300-a-week in benefits despite living in Africa, it was revealed today.
      The boy, aged seven, and baby girl, one, are now living with their aunt in the unnamed African nation but are still getting handouts from the British taxpayer.
      They will receive benefits until they both turn 16, the High Court has ruled, meaning the pair will receive £187,000 by that time.
      Their mother claimed asylum in 2004 saying she was the victim of sexual abuse and violence only to be exposed as a liar.
      Their abusive father was jailed for six months possessing a fake passport and has spent the past eight months in a detention centre awaiting deportation.

      Jesus wept. And we can’t afford to support our own elderly and ill. Ffs.

      The Germans are now literally too soft to put down a killer Dog that mauled it's owners to death.
      The whole country is toast.
      https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2018/apr/09/germany-chico-dog-that-killed-owners-petition-hanover?__twitter_impression=true
      A dog that was due to be put down after mauling its owners to death may receive a stay of execution after German authorities admitted mistakes following a nationwide petition to save it.
      Chico, a staffordshire terrier, was captured by firefighters who broke into a flat near Hanover last Tuesday and found the bodies of its owners, named as Lezime K, 52, and her son Liridon, 27. An autopsy found they had bled to death after being attacked by the animal.
      The dog was to be put down, but after more than 250,000 people signed a petition titled Let Chico Live, Udo Möller, a city spokesman, said authorities were ready to admit they had made mistakes by failing to remove Chico from its owners, having recognised that they were overwhelmed by the dog, which had been trained to fight.
