Kilauea Unleashes More Small Blasts, Snaking Lava

More Small Blasts from Hawaii Volcano Kilauea Volcano Still Erupting; More Than 600 Homes Destroyed

He said nonprofit organizations are now offering the bulk of resources and assistance to evacuees, and he encouraged people who have insurance to use it. "It's going to take a whole community effort".

Meanwhile, officials said Fissure 8 continues to produce a large flow that is entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay and producing a large plume, KHON2 reported.

The volcanic gas and ash emission could affect air quality across the central and southern half of Big Island, Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency said. "Some aspects of it can kind of start to scale down as the volcano somewhat runs into a stable situation".

The lava is also flowing into the ocean, where it has created about 200 acres of new land, while also releasing risky gas plumes and causing explosions as the molten rock hits the cold water.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist Janet Babb says there hasn't been a lot of change in recent days as lava from an erupting volcano keeps spewing from a crack in the ground.

USGS warned that lava flows from Fissure 8 remains a major concern as it channels along the south-east end of Big Island, turning into a corrosive cloud of muriatic acid and small glass particles as it hits the sea. Only residents are allowed there.

Many people whose homes have been destroyed don't have insurance, and FEMA officials are working with local authorities to get disaster assistance to those who qualify. The preliminary magnitude of the second event was 5.4.

A National Weather Service radar unit has been helping provide data about the heights of the ash plumes and the direction of ash fall. Ash expelled from the Kilauea volcano may cause poor visibility and slippery conditions for drivers.

Another ongoing hazard comes from lava meeting the ocean. Venturing too close to an ocean entry on land or the ocean exposes you to flying debris from sudden explosive interaction between lava and water.
