(PAHOA, Hawaii) — Lava has rolled nearly 300 feet closer towards a main road on the Big Island of Hawaii and there is no indication that it is going to stop.

The spread of the lava and the smoke coming off the volcanic liquid can be seen from space, and NASA released images showing its destructive path.

The lava is oozing forward at about 10 yards per hour near Pahoa Village Road and is headed in a northeastern direction. The flow is now 240 yards from the road, officials said.

Residents in the down slope of the lava flow path have been given an evacuation advisory and those with respiratory issues have been warned to stay indoors.
