Lava from the Kilauea volcano has been creeping across Hawaii’s Big Island for days now, after the Los Angeles Times reports that volcanic instability began last Monday. On its slow but destructive path, the lava has consumed more than 26 homes, affected 1,800 residents and swallowed an abandoned Ford Mustang.
It’s almost surreal to watch the lava rattle a metal fence open and creep all the way across an empty road, slowly approaching the doomed objects ahead of it. The speed makes it seem like there’s all the time in the world for the Mustang to get away, but nobody around to move it. Things don’t end well for the car.
Here’s video of the lava consuming the car, from KHOU. The station didn’t give any specific details on this scene when it published the video, and only gave an overview of how much damage Kilauea’s lava has done so far:
