Lava Flow In Leilani Estates

While the lava flow is only affecting a small portion of Hawaii Island, my beloved town of Pahoa is suffering a devastating loss. In the midst of all this, new friendships are being formed, leaders are emerging and our 'aina (land) is growing stronger.

J.D. Whacker with Paradise Photo and Design spent Memorial Day in Leilani Estates capturing the lava flow. The images are both beautiful and destructive.
