Blue flames rising from ground at the eruption of Hawaii volcano

But if you take a broad view of the hazards, you'll find a serious local disaster, but not the worst event in Kilauea's 280,000-year history.

For many of those who continued to buy homes, the lure continued to be cheap housing in a tropical wonderland. This channels are now pouring into the ocean at three spots, producing a billowing haze.

Residents down rift of the lava flows should be prepared to voluntarily evacuate at a moment's notice. "It opened up very recently", USGS volcanologist Wendy Stovall said Thursday.

"We now have the capacity to evacuate all of the estimated population of lower Puna south of the lava flow within a few hours", Brig.

Kilauea sparked new safety warnings on Monday about toxic gas on the Big Island's southern coastline after lava flowing into the ocean set off a chemical reaction.

Actually, Kilauea began erupting not on May 3 but in 1983.

Fissure 6 builds a lava berm across Pohoiki Road. And right now, it's all a lava lake. When lava buries plants and shrubs, methane gas is produced as a byproduct of burning vegetation.

Lava edged towards a geothermal power plant on Tuesday after destroying an old warehouse near the facility, County of Hawaii Civil Defense said.




The volcano is still having one of the most long-lived eruptions known on earth, which started in 1983 on the eastern rift zone and has been concentrated at the Pu'u 'O'o vent.

Kris Burmeister watches lava erupt from fissures in the Leilani Estates subdivision near Pahoa, Hawaii, Tuesday, May 22, 2018. The nearby Gemini Observatory in Hilo, Hawaii, captured a time-lapse glimpse at Kilauea from Monday night into Tuesday morning as the light from the volcano and its almost two-dozen fissures beamed through the clouds. Businesses catering to tourists on the cruise have taken a hit since the company suspended Big Island port visits after the eruption began.

At least four people were airlifted over the weekend in Lower Puna.

Kilauea's summit has seenexplosive eruptions since then, sending plumes of ash thousands of feet into the air. Communities southwest of the summit were dusted with ash, said National Weather Service meteorologist John Bravender.

Lava has now entered the Pacific Ocean and is producing laze, as it reacts with the sea water, which is potentially deadly if inhaled. Emergency room visits due to respiratory issues are up 30 percent.

Officials plan to distribute free masks to protect families from volcanic ash.

One person has suffered a serious leg injury from flying lava spatter.

And with scientists unable to say when the eruption will end, many nearby residents simply must contend with uncertainty about their future. The yard was littered every few feet with with fallen lava, but Clinton wasn't anxious about getting hit by the hunks of molten rock.
