  • Lava spewing from Hawaii volcano destroys dozens of homes

The usual activity of the volcano, with lavas coming out of the Puu Oo vent, and at the summit, could have easily convinced anyone that the eastern edge was off the hook. While activity at the existing vents is beginning to settle down, additional vents are expected to release more lava. The preparations include the identification of shelters, mobilization of police and other security personnel to ensure residents' safety, and road crews to ensure access to evacuation routes.

Hundreds of small earthquakes continued to rumble through the area Saturday, one day after a magnitude-6.9 temblor hit - the largest quake to hit Hawaii in more than 40 years.

Scientists and volcanologists are now trying to determine the movement of the magma under the volcano. The magma moving through the rift zones is now causing a lot of stress on the ground beneath the volcano, which will eventually be released as tremors. "We're just getting a series of earthquakes".

"They're like my kids", she said. Two homes have burned. He has remote cameras set up in his home and says that as of now his home is still intact. They came just as some residents were trying to evacuate, causing more complications and panic.

"I was a critical care nurse for 37 years, so I understand the health implications and the dangers involved", McMillan said.

State officials didn't report damage to roadways.

Levels of sulfur dioxide - which can cause respiratory distress and irritation of the eyes, nose and throat - were elevated, Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim tweeted Sunday.

Hawaii Electric Light said the jolt knocked out power to about 14,400 customers, but electricity was restored about two hours later.

The University of Hawaii at Hilo and Hawaii Community College both closed campuses to allow students and employees to "attend to personal business and priorities".


Kilauea's lava has taken out roads and destroyed some homes.

There have been more than 1,000 earthquakes over the last week in the area of Kilauea, produced by the volcano making room for new flows of magma occurring inside of it. In 2014, lava torched a house and blanketed a cemetery near Leilani Estates, and nearly 30 years ago, the entire town of Kalapana was slowly buried in lava over a year. She stormed past police unopposed.

Fire officials conducted another safety sweep of homes Sunday and watched helplessly as the lava engulfed a green single-story house.

As of Sunday morning, nine volcanic vents had erupted in evacuated neighborhoods on the island, according to County of Hawaii officials.

The Big Island is home to Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes.

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

"There's more magma in the system to be erupted".

Residents have faced lava threats before. Hawaii Gov. David Ige said residents in the area were being sheltered at Pahoa and Kea'au community centers.

At the same time, erupting lava has already reached the city and began to destroy buildings and local infrastructure. She later confirmed that lava had covered her entire property.
