Pahoa, Hawaii (CNN) - A 2,000-degree river of lava could swallow a dozen Hawaiian homes in the next day or two - and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
Molten rock from the Kilauea Volcano was about 350 yards from the nearest cluster of homes late Tuesday night, said Troy Scott of the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency.
At some point Wednesday, the glowing lava could be visible from the houses, he said.
