HAWAII - Hawaii’s big island is seeing quite a bit of lava activity from Kilauea volcano this week.

A large surge of lava sent hot liquid rock surging down the cliffs.

This video shot by “Tropical Visions Video and Paradise Helicopters” shows a great swath of lava making its way along the cliffs.

This lava flow Tuesday did not reach the ocean and poses no threat to nearby communities.

Cooler with mountain showers likely this weekend. Gusty winds will prompt a Wind Advisory in the valley on Sunday.
