Explosion rocks Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, sending ash 1 mile high

Footage recently emerged of lava flow from fissures crashing into the Pacific Ocean in Kapoho Bay. On Friday, the count was at 87 homes. The lava pushed into beach lots in Kapoho, which has about 350 homes and Vacationland, which has about 150.

Lava has inundated most of Vacationland and has covered all but the northern part of Kapoho Beach Lots.

The flow, which is a half-mile wide in parts, entered the sea Sunday night, according to the Hawaii County Civil Defense, sending large plumes of "laze" - a unsafe mix of steam, gas and volcanic glass - into the air.

Officials warned the public to stay away from the plume because it can irritate skin and eyes and make it hard to breathe.

Civil defense officials said Kapoho Bay itself had been filled in with lava that extended seven-tenths of a mile from what had been the shoreline. 'Harry had a premonition this was going to happen, ' she told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

The latest damage came from a large lava flow that crept several miles (km) before severing a key highway junction at Kapoho on Saturday and then obliterating about a half dozen blocks of the subdivision over the weekend, the spokesman said.

There have been various arrests of people forcing their way through blocked areas. She said it would be some time before precise losses were confirmed. He faces charges that include refusing to evacuate and reckless driving. "Nothing stops it and the direction it goes", Magno said of the lava flow.

Reports suggest that hundreds of homes have been destroyed in the eruption event.

It said that a series of earthquakes had rattled the island for most of Monday night and into Tuesday morning, including one with a magnitude 5.5 that generated an ash plume.

"Therefore, we believe that the messages from the Governor and the Hawaii Tourism Authority that the volcano is in a remote location, over 100 miles from the main tourist resort areas, and that the islands are open for business, have credibility and are, to a significant extent, being heeded".

"Unlike lava, which you can see coming and avoid, we cannot see or predict earthquakes, nor can we foresee a summit explosion, but both threats continue", park Superintendent Cindy Orlando said.
