Mysterious weather events have struck Hawaii’s Big Island, where the volcano Kilauea continues to erupt and spew lava. The steam from lava in the ocean goes into the atmosphere, cools down and falls back to the Island as freezing rain and fog, forcing the Hawaii National Weather Service to issue a shock Winter Weather Advisory alert.

The unusual weather event is incredibly rare and meteorologists have admitted that they have “never seen this before”.

One Hawaiian meteorologist Pete Caggiano told viewers: “Lava flow has actually prompted a winter weather advisory for the summit of the Big Island. Lava is entering into the ocean that is creating a lot of steam. As that steam rises up it cools and falls back down as freezing rain and fog. I have never seen this before. This has sparked a winter weather warning for above 12,000 ft. There are ice on the roadways so this is creating dangerous conditions.

Meanwhile the Kilauea eruption continues devouring houses and destroying land.
