Hawaii Volcano Spews Lava and Smoke Causing Residents to Evacuate

Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano erupts, forces hundreds to evacuate

"As long as that supply is there, the eruption will continue", U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist Wendy Stovall said.

Gary McMillan said his home is about 3,000 feet (914 meters) from one of the fissures that is spewing lava and gas into Leilani Estates. Residents are also being warned to watch out for risky levels of sulfuric gas.

Earlier in the day, officials had said the lava destroyed nine homes.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory spokeswoman Janet Babb said the earthquakes reflected the volcano adjusting to the shifting magma.

USGS video showed lava pouring out of the vents and flowing through swaths of dense trees, across roads and near homes.

In this handout photo provided by the U.S. Geological Survey, lava from a fissure slowly advances to the northeast on Hookapu Street after the eruption of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano on May 5, 2018 in the Leilani Estates subdivision near Pahoa, Hawaii. The fissures also spew out extremely high levels of sulphuric gas, which could be deadly to those with breathing and lung problems. He monitored remote cameras set up in his home and said his home was still intact.

He's residing out of his van along with his spouse on the close by group centre and continually thinks about issues they left behind, however understands why authorities evacuated residents.

Eruptions of lava fountains continued throughout the night. A 5.6 magnitude quake hit south of the volcano, which was followed by a larger 6.9-magnitude temblor, according to the USGS.

KHON reported that some viewers on the island of Oahu, about 200 miles away, felt the shaking.

About 14,000 customers of Hawaii Electric Light lost power immediately after the quake.

Griffin said the harsh social media reaction made her back down at the time, and she agreed that the image was "too disturbing". That was all okay". "Look, I'm not holding back on this family", said the 57-year-old comic. "They already are.


Local officials closed volcano viewing areas while a portion of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was also closed.

A single mother of two says she is devastated that her Big Island home was burned to the ground by a lava flow.

Stovall says there is no indication when the lava flow may stop.

One woman angrily told police guarding Leilani Estates that she was going in and they couldn't arrest her.

Kilauea has been continuously erupting since 1983 and is one of the world's most active volcanoes.

"Those remaining in Leilani and Lanipuna Gardens and along Pohoiki Road need to prepare to leave because if the winds change, you could be gassed", Hawaii County Council member Eileen O'Hara said in a Facebook post.

The crater floor began to collapse Monday, triggering earthquakes and pushing the lava into new underground chambers.

And the earthquakes did not stop, they kept moving east, past Highway 130, the main road connecting communities on the southeastern corner of the Big Island, and scientists and civil engineers (and residents) became anxious that there could be an eruption close to communities. She later confirmed that lava had covered her entire property.

The number of homes destroyed by lava bursting out of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has climbed to five.
