   Dangerous 'vigorous' lava eruptions have prompted a strict mandatory evacuation order for the Hawaii community hardest hit by the Kilauea Volcano.
   Those who snub the order risk being arrested, as the Big Island's mayor, Harry Kim, declared a roughly 17-block swath of the lava-stricken Leilani Estates subdivision off-limits indefinitely, and gave any residents remaining there 24 hours to leave
   After a month of continual eruptions at Kilauea's summit and along its eastern flank, geologists say they have no idea how much longer it will last.
   'There's no sign we're getting that anything is going to slow down at the moment,' Wendy STOVL, a vulcanologist for the U.S. Geological Survey, told reporters on a conference call on Thursday. 'We don't see any changes occurring.'
