Lava from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano has covered a potentially explosive well at a geothermal power station and threatened another, after flowing onto the site, officials said.Magma has drained from Kilauea's summit lava lake and flowed around 40 kilometers east underground, bursting out of about two dozen giant cracks or fissures near the plant.Operator Ormat Technologies Inc. last week said there was no above-ground damage to the plant, but it would have to wait until the situation stabilized to assess the impact of earthquakes and subterranean lava flows on the wells.
