Lava Torches Hundreds of Homes

Lava Torches Hundreds of Homes

The official said aerial surveillance of the area showed only the northern portion of Kapoho Beach and the southernmost "sliver" of Vacationland - the latter consisting of only about a half-dozen homes - were left unscathed.

County Managing Director Wil Okabe says his vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots is also threatened.

Kīlauea Volcano's current eruption centered in Leilani Estates on the Big Island of Hawai'i has destroyed almost 200 homes over the past day and a half.

Homes in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland are on smaller lots and closer together than those in other parts of the Puna district.

No injuries were reported as most residents heeded the advice to leave. Lava continues to pour into the ocean, enlarging the delta at the former Kapoho Bay site.

He says the tough line forced the North Korean leader to soften his stance. "We're not paying for their expenses". Trump and Kim are scheduled to meet on June 12 in Singapore .

The lava inundating Kapoho is emanating from Fissure 8, the only volcanic vent that was still belching large volumes of molten rock from the ground as of Tuesday, officials said.

Video footage from a helicopter showed two seaside homes engulfed in flames as clouds of white steam and hydrochloric acid fumes billowed from the water, where red-hot lava was pouring into the ocean.

"For us it's more of a vacation area, but for those who live there permanently, they're trying to figure out where they're going to be living", he said.

Snyder said from now on, the county will provide counts of homes destroyed. "Nothing stops it and the direction it goes", Magno said of the lava flow.

That was the message Wednesday morning from Janet Snyder, spokeswoman for Mayor Harry Kim.

She reminisced about taking her daughter to swim in the ocean for the first time in a local swimming spot known as Champagne Ponds.

The latest damage came from a large lava flow that crept several miles before severing a key highway junction at Kapoho on Saturday and then obliterating about a half-dozen blocks of the subdivision over the weekend, the spokesman said.

That would more than double the 117 homes that have been confirmed as destroyed during the ongoing eruption.

So too have airborne volcanic glass fibers, called "Pele's hair", wispy strands carried aloft by the wind from lava fountains and named for the volcano goddess of Hawaiian myth.
