Nearly a dozen people are trapped by lava flowing from Hawaii's Kilauea [[ KILL-uh-WAY-uh ]] volcano. Authorities today said the lava increased after "vigorous eruptions" and stranded the residents in an area on Hawaii's Big Island with no electricity, cell phone reception, phone landlines or water. There are plans to airlift the holdouts if necessary. At least 87 homes have fallen victim to the lava that started flowing a month ago. The stranded people said they just had nowhere else to go and their final escape route was cut off by the lava.
