Scientists said Wednesday the risks of an explosive summit eruption will rise in coming weeks as magma drains down the flank of the volcano toward the area where began erupting lava in a residential neighborhood last week.

Officials in Hawaii said late Wednesday that a 15th fissure opened up.

Sounding like a massive blowtorch, fiery lava from Kilauea continued its relentless crawl down the streets of Leilani Estates Wednesday.

"Small amounts of fine ash from these explosions fell over a wide area as far north as North Hilo (Hakalau), in lower Puna, and as far south as Waiohinu", HVO said.

"This kind of eruption that is occurring now is very normal for this volcano", volcanologist Janine Krippner of Concord University in West Virginia.

The possibility of such a sudden eruption will increase as lava flows from Kilauea's summit crater down its face and magma falls below the water table, the U.S. Geological Survey says.

Kilauea may become more active again soon as the lava lake level drops, forcing groundwater to mix with hot rock causing a build-up of stream pressure which will eventually explode. "If you're near the crater, within half a mile, you could be subject to ballistic blocks weighing as much as 10 or 12 tons".

ASTER also keeps an eye on sulfur dioxide gas which is produced by the volcano during the eruptions, and quieter cracks in the ground. When the gas mixes with sunlight, moisture and oxygen, it produces acid rain and volcanic smog. They can drift far from the eruption and hang in the air.

The warning comes as volcanologists in Hawaii report a new fissure at the entrance to another residential area on the Big Island, where thousands have already been forced to evacuate.

The plant, which is owned by Ormat Technologies of Reno, Nevada, is across the highway from where lava has been erupting. He said it would be "very hazardous" if a volcanic vent were to open under the facility where the fuel is stored. All 50,000 gallons (189,270 liters) of pentane was expected to be removed by the end of Thursday.

Authorities initially ordered almost 2,000 residents to leave two communities in the Big Island's mostly rural district of Puna last Thursday. But some ignored the order and stayed to watch over their property. There was no sign of holdouts in Lanipuna afterward, he said.

Hawaii Governor David Ige has requested federal disaster assistance as he said a mass evacuation of the lower Puna District, where Leilani Estates is located, would be beyond current county and state capabilities. Police say the man took advantage of the fact that most of these homes were empty due to mandatory lava evacuations.

Officials warn that lava could flow downhill and burn areas that don't now face danger and that toxic volcanic gas could kill people, especially the elderly and those with breathing problems.

Evans spoke to other residents this week who lived in the lava's path of destruction. "We don't know what's going on underground".
