Kilauea Volcano Still Erupting; More Than 600 Homes Destroyed

More Small Blasts from Hawaii Volcano

Lava covers a road on the outskirts of Pahoa during ongoing eruptions of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii, U.S., June 9, 2018. "A lot of, 'What now?'" said Big Island Mayor Harry Kim, who spoke at a news conference Monday.

A spokesperson for Hawaii County Civil Defence said: "What used to be the bay is now all lava bed, new land, nearly a mile out into the ocean".

A river of molten rock is flowing toward a community that got wiped out last week. This activity continues to feed the fast-moving channelized flow that is entering the ocean at Kapoho.

Bob Fenton, FEMA administrator for Region IX, told reporters Monday he conducted an overflight of lava-ravaged areas and was "amazed at the amount of devastation". Magno said additional workers can be called in if conditions change.

Officials warned that gas emissions from Fissure 8 have doubled triggering air quality concerns, according to Hawaii News Now.


The Big Island volcano has been erupting for more than a month, sending lava into neighborhoods from cracks in the ground and destroying hundreds of homes. Half of the residents of a subdivision that had been ordered to evacuate after a fissure opened there on May 3 were being allowed to return starting last week.

"Just a few days ago Kapoho Bay was a handsome vacation destination, filled with vacation homes, handsome beaches and clear water", Forbes wrote last week.

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area Wednesday with the force of a 5.4 magnitude natural disaster and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level.

A National Weather Service radar unit has been helping provide data about the heights of the ash plumes and the direction of ash fall.

The lava is also creating laze - lava haze - a deadly mix of hydrochloric acid fumes, steam and tiny specks of volcanic glass, created when lava hits the ocean.
