Subdivisions of Puna

A lava flow destroyed Kapoho Village in 1960 but later that same year the County of Hawaii approved the subdivision of Leilani Estates, which is about eight miles from Kapoho on the same rift zone. Leilani Estates has more then 2260 lots, even though it sits in an area rated by the U.S. Geological Survey as being a highest risk zone for lava inundation.
