Fissure Seen in Close-Up During Eruption in Pahoa, Hawaii

Letters: Live Lava Cam 'Fascinating But Scary'

Another fissure spewing lava and unhealthy gas opened up Monday, and a crack in the Earth that emerged a day earlier was sending molten rock on a slow run for the ocean, officials said. There is no indication of when the eruption might stop, or how far the lava might spread.

No, the ongoing rampage at Hawaii's Kilauea volcano won't trigger eruptions at Mount Rainier or other Cascades volcanoes.

The executive director of the Island of Hawaii Visitors Bureau told CNN the volcano isn't just the Big Island's No. 1 attraction, "it's the state's No. 1 attraction".

"We do have five active volcanoes in our state", said Brian Terbush, natural disaster and volcano coordinator at Washington EMD. People are continuing to visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where Kilaueau is located, but the area has some restrictions.

A new volcanic fissure on Hawaii's Big Island has sent gases and lava exploding into the air. "Such extended effusion will hamper any rebuilding efforts in that part of the island". The number of fissures has been climbing steadily since May 3, when the volcano first erupted, destroying homes and prompting evacuations.

Earthquakes suggest magma still is moving into the rift zone, Neal and Klemetti have said.

The Article from Scientist spot Kilauea Volcano erupt from Space Station.

As a precaution, plant workers last week removed 50,000 gallons (189,265 liters) of a flammable liquid stored at the site.

Geologists warn that Kilauea's summit could have an explosive steam eruption that would hurl huge rocks and ash miles into the sky.

Fiery lava has engulfed the island since Kilauea began erupting May 3, forcing almost 2,000 residents to evacuate.

So, what's the best-case scenario for the eruption?

The lava was flowing for hundreds of yards past that fissure. While this is a possibility, the expert noted that similar eruptions in the past have gone on for weeks or even months. "Hawaii took people by surprise".

Officials on the Big Island of Hawaii say some vents formed by Kilauea volcano are releasing such high levels of sulfur dioxide that the gas poses an immediate danger to anyone nearby.

The area affected by ongoing seismic activity, summit deflation, and a possible steam explosion at the summit of Kīlauea is the eastern part of the state near Leilani Estates, an area that contains less than 5% of the island's population, Okabe said. Since then, almost 2,000 people have been evacuated from the neighborhood.
