From earthquakes to seeping lava, Hawaii's Big Island has seen plenty from nature since the first eruptions of Kilauea volcano.
Lava also destroyed a freshwater lake, boiling away all of the water in it, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported late on Saturday.
About 3 miles (4.8 km) to the east of the plant on the coast, noxious clouds of acid fumes, steam, and fine glass-like particles billowed into the sky as lava poured into the ocean from two lava flows.
A stream of lava as wide as three football fields flowed over a highway near a junction at Kapoho, a seaside community rebuilt after a destructive eruption of Kilauea in 1960.
Officers have issued 18 total citations in the last week to people for bypassing checkpoints and entering risky areas, the Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE) said in a statement.
Lava erupts in May from a fissure in the Leilani Estates neighbourhood.
Civil Defense spokesperson Janet Snyder said at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday that all but the northernmost tip of Kapoho Beach Lots have been inundated with lava, while only the coast of Vacationland remains after the lava flow from fissure 8 rapidly advanced overnight. Police on Monday said a man sped through a checkpoint near an intersection where lava was approaching.

The protesters are also demanding the "right of return" for Palestinian refugees from the 1948 war and their descendants. Reda al-Najjar, Razan al-Najjar's colleague and friend, was with the paramedic when she was shot by the Israeli sniper.
Also risky is the amount of sulfur dioxide produced by the lower East Rift Zone fissures.
Officials said all identified fissures continue to emit hazardous gases.
Hawaii Civil Defense spokesman Talmadge Mango said Friday that at least 87 buildings have been destroyed since the Kilauea volcano erupted on May 3.
Volcanic fibres, known as Pele's hair, and other lightweight volcanic glass were reported to be gathering in the Leilani Estates, the hardest hit community.
Two other park buildings also sustained quake damage, and the entire park is without water service. Chain of Craters Road is ready for use as an emergency evacuation route, Magno said, although some additional gravel will be deposited on the road's surface. The route connects Highway 130 through Sanford's Service Center Inc. property north of Kamā'ili Road / 'Opihikāō Drive and Ala'ili Road.
Rutledge said since the eruption "we've lost our home, we've lost our cat".
Rutledge, who along with her husband was staying at the Keaau Armory shelter, also lamented the possible fate of the tide pools, now inaccessible and dangerously close to obliteration. "We've been out and swam with sea turtles, we swam with manta ray, we saw attractive eels. It's a nice thing gone".
