Kilauea Volcano In Hawaii Has Covered Almost 4 Square Miles In Lava

Kilauea Volcano In Hawaii Has Covered Almost 4 Square Miles In Lava

Magma spewed from 100-foot-high (30-meter-high) cinder cones and formed elevated ponds of molten rock that were expected to soon overflow and stream into the next rows of homes - Kahukai Street and Mohala Street. The fountains fed a perched pahoehoe flow 20-40 feet thick, and a flow that ultimately turned south toward the coast.

An update on the situation this week on Hawaii island.

Steve Brantley of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the flow seemed to have halted Sunday morning after moving slowly into the proximity of the well overnight.

The new fissure sent more lava into the to evacuated Leilani Estates district in the eastern corner of Hawaii's Big Island.

"I think it's safe to say authorities have been concerned about the flow of lava onto the plant property since the eruption started", Mr Mace said. There was concern the lava would release hydrogen sulfide or other toxic gases.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) flew over the area on Sunday evening and used infrared technology to discover where people were located.

As of Friday, the oozing lava had destroyed 82 structures on the Big Island, Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno said.

"Additional ground cracking and outbreaks of lava in the area of the active fissures are possible". The volcano began erupting on May 3, and since then at least 20 lava fissures have opened up.

The ongoing eruption, which has produced rivers of lava, is also threatening to cover more wells at a geothermal power station.

Those living in communities southwest of the Kilauea volcano are warned that wind might carry ash their way after the eruption Thursday night. Ash this morning reached almost 15,000 feet. "We monitor for hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide on a continuous basis", Kaleikini said.
