Officials warn of falling ash after explosion at Kilauea summit

Officials warn of falling ash after explosion at Kilauea summit

The lava is "enough to cover Manhattan 6.5 feet deep" and fill 11.3 million average dump trucks, it said.

U.S. Geological Survey and Hawaii County Civil Defense reports said lava overflowed the channel for several hours near the intersection of Highway 132 and Pohoiki Road, though nearly none of the overspill extended beyond hardened lava previously laid down since the eruption in Puna's lower East Rift Zone began May 3 in the middle of the residential subdivision. It was flowing north and then east toward a community the lava wiped out last week. The fissure's plumes of lava are feeding a fast-moving channel that is flooding into the sea at Kapoho Bay-an area that was recently an oceanside resort.

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.

On Sunday, another explosion spewed ash from the volcano, creating a driving hazard for roads on parts of the Big Island.

Lava was shooting into the sky from one vent and there was "weak" activity at two other fissures, which weren't producing much of a flow and not advancing very far, Babb said.

Officials warned that gas emissions from Fissure 8 have doubled triggering air quality concerns, according to Hawaii News Now. Magno said additional workers can be called in if conditions change. A 5.3-magnitude quake accompanied the latest eruption.

Many people whose homes have been destroyed don't have insurance, and FEMA officials are working with local authorities to get disaster assistance to those who qualify.

A National Weather Service radar unit has been helping provide data about the heights of the ash plumes and the direction of ash fall.

"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", the observatory said.

The ongoing lava flows have forced thousands of people from their homes, although many have been allowed to return on a temporary basis, particularly in the Leilani Estates area.
