Lava Destroys "Hundreds" More Homes In Hawaii

Residents stranded in area of Hawaii cut off by lava | TheHill 500 More Evacuated in Hawaii as Lava Severs Road

The flow prompted warnings from Hawaii County Civil Defense authorities about laze, a nasty mashup of lava and haze that sends hydrochloric acid and volcanic glass particles into the air.

An official count of homes destroyed has yet to be released, but Snyder said that, because almost all of Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland were covered, the number is expected to be in the hundreds. On Friday, the count was at 87 homes.

USGS helicopter footage from Monday showed lava from one fissure entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay and completely filled it, KGMB-TV reports.

Lava early Tuesday destroyed Big Island Mayor Harry Kim's second home in Vacationland, Snyder said.

More earthquakes are predicted for Big Island, with the USGS reporting today that: "We expect that natural disaster rates will increase in the coming hours and culminate in another small explosion, perhaps within the next day, following the pattern of the past few weeks".

Thousands in the Puna area had to evacuate after lava fissures started opening in neighbourhoods a month ago. Okabe described the area as a mix of vacation rentals and year-round residences.

In the second video, taken about seven hours later (around 1:38 p.m.), lava had almost filled the shallow bay and was close to covering Champagne Ponds (right side of the screen, toward the end of the video) in the north part of Kapoho Bay.

During one sexual encounter between the two, the woman said he "smacked me and grabbed me and shoved me down on the ground". Louis grand jury indicted Greitens on February 22 on one felony count of invasion of privacy related to the alleged photo.

"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.

U.S. Geological Survey scientists say one fissure is still very active and is creating a lava fountain that reached 200 feet (60.96 metres).

All but a few of the estimated 500 inhabitants of Kapoho and adjacent Vacationland development are now believed to have fled their homes, an agency spokesman said.

Lava now extends more than a half-mile into Kapoho Bay, according to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Kim and Okabe live in Hilo, the county's seat, which is more than an hour drive from the Kapoho area.

Almost a dozen people were left stranded in an area cut off by lava on Sunday.

The quake comes on the heels of a separate 5.5 magnitude tremor at 3:50 p.m. on Sunday, June 3, that also rattled the summit area and cracked the overlook deck at Jaggar Museum.

"Unlike lava, which you can see coming and avoid, we cannot see or predict earthquakes, nor can we foresee a summit explosion, but both threats continue", park Superintendent Cindy Orlando said.
