Kilauea volcano's lava could fill 45,400 Olympic-sized swimming pools: USGS

More Small Blasts from Hawaii Volcano

Approximately eight square miles of Hawaii's Big Island has been covered by lava since this period of activity began on May 3. "A lot of, 'What now?'" said Big Island Mayor Harry Kim, who spoke at a news conference Monday.

A river of molten rock is flowing toward community that was wiped out last week.

A large flow of lava from a fissure that has already destroyed hundreds of homes is continuing to enter the ocean at Kapoho Bay.

Fenton said he was "amazed at the amount of devastation" he has seen and that it is "going to take a whole community effort" to help in the recovery, KGMB reports.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the explosion was equivalent to a magnitude of 5.4 and sent plumes of ash into the air. Over the weekend, gas emissions from the outbreak almost doubled, indicating a potential increase in its eruption rate.

Mr Kim's itinerary was reported in detail, which is a rarity for the state's media, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency. And I said instead of doing that you could have the best hotels in the world right there.

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.

In the meantime, fewer workers are needed to staff a 24-hour operations center and officials are reducing checkpoints, Magno said.

Last week, authorities allowed some Leilani Estates residents to return and about half of the subdivision's residents are now back full time, Magno said. A 5.3-magnitude natural disaster accompanied the latest eruption.

"Just a few days ago Kapoho Bay was a handsome vacation destination, filled with vacation homes, handsome beaches and clear water", Forbes wrote last week. There were two small blasts Monday, including one after a magnitude-5.4 natural disaster, scientists said. Ash expelled from the Kilauea volcano may cause poor visibility and slippery conditions for drivers. 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.
