Some people evacuated by Hawaii lava go home

Some people evacuated by Hawaii lava go home”

The lava is "enough to cover Manhattan 6.5 feet deep" and fill 11.3 million average dump trucks, it said. New land created by the active ocean entries is loose, unstable and corrosive, the agency reported.

U.S. Geological Survey and Hawaii County Civil Defense reports said lava overflowed the channel for several hours near the intersection of Highway 132 and Pohoiki Road, though nearly none of the overspill extended beyond hardened lava previously laid down since the eruption in Puna's lower East Rift Zone began May 3 in the middle of the residential subdivision.

The Kapoho home was one of hundreds that have been charred by the massive lava flow coming from Fissure 8 on Hawaii's Big Island over the last few days.

Fissure 8 continued to feed a vigorous channelized lava flow to the east of the vent on Saturday morning. "It's going to take a whole community effort". He told reporters on Monday that temblors are almost continuous at the summit and that gas emissions remain "very high".

Kilauea volcano is near-constantly erupting from vents either on its summit (caldera) or on the rift zones. Only residents are allowed there. The mayor said he's never seen so many homes destroyed in such a short amount of time.

While the lava continues to spew in lower Puna, seismic events at Kilauea volcano's summit are also continuous. There were two small blasts Monday, including one after a magnitude-5.4 quake, scientists said. A part for repairs was expected soon, said Robert Ballard, science and operations officer for the weather service in Honolulu. Ash expelled from the Kilauea volcano may cause poor visibility and slippery conditions for drivers.

The USGS warns against trying to explore the risky ocean entry points because the potentially explosive meeting of lava and water can send debris flying.

Another ongoing hazard comes from lava meeting the ocean.
