Green Lake, the largest freshwater lake on Hawaii's Big Island, has completely disappeared, another victim of the Kilauea volcano, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Lava from Fissure 8 begin pouring into the lake, turning it into a roiling cauldron. A thick, white plume of water vapor billowed hundreds of feet over the lake. It took only an hour and a half for the molten rock to evaporate the entire body of water, which was about 200 feet deep.
With this largest fresh water lake now gone, local citizens are asking if the big island has enough drinking water. Local officials say they "believe so."
