Lava destroys 600 homes on Hawaii's Big Island - mayor

Ash Eruption At Kilauea Summit Registered As 5.4 Earthquake

Hawaii Governor David Ige has signed a memorandum of understanding furnishing millions of dollars in state disaster relief to the island.

One of the areas they have been used extensively is in capturing video of the lava flow in the lower East Rift Zone coming from the fissures in Leilani Estates.

Mount Kilauea's latest eruption began early on Tuesday morning and was so powerful it spewed ash almost a mile into the air and sparked a 5.5 magnitude quake.

The Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island has been erupting for 33 days.

HVO said the lava delta is 1.2 miles wide and added that "ocean entry is sending a large laze plume into the air along the coastline". Molten rock has entirely covered the neighborhood of "Vacationland" on Hawaii's big island as it continues to spread into nearby Kapoho Bay.




Explosive activity at the shield volcano on the country's Big Island has had a dramatic impact on the surrounding landscape.

Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim, whose home was among those lost, said the increased toll makes the Kilauea eruption the most catastrophic event in the state's history. "I'm talking about 600 families".

U.S. Geological Survey scientist have been using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for a number of monitoring missions for the current Kilauea eruption.

An estimated 2,500 people have been displaced by evacuations across the island since the eruption began five weeks ago, spouting fountains of lava and high concentrations of toxic sulfur dioxide gas through about two dozen volcanic fissures at the foot of the volcano.

Frequent earthquakes, mostly of relatively small magnitude but numbering in the thousands, have persisted throughout the eruption, adding to the jitters of residents living closest to the volcano.
