Along With Lava, Hawaii Volcano Spews Gems

Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano destroys 467 homes

Westby said the majority of the lava flow from fissure 8 to the ocean entry at Kapoho is incandescent at night, indicating that the lava channel has become quite efficient at transporting lava from the fissure to the ocean before it cools.

"There was very little ash", said county spokeswoman Janet Snyder, adding that "seismicity has been intense overnight in the Volcano area".

Activity on Saturday included an explosive event at Halemaumau Crater that had the energy of a 5.3 magnitude natural disaster, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said.

Saturday's announcement comes with an alert to Hawaiians to remain vigilant about air quality conditions and for those with breathing problems to limit outdoor activities. Experts expect heavier vog, or volcanic smog, to blanket the interior and southern parts of the Big Island, wrapping around to Kona through the weekend.

Fissures 16 and 18 are oozing lava, while fissure 6 appeared as an orange glow with mild spattering during Monday morning's overflight, scientists said.

This is not a time-lapse video but the actual state of affairs at Hawaii's Big Island, just days after its Kīlauea volcano erupted, forcing thousands of people to flee.

Kilauea has destroyed more than 600 homes since it began spraying lava out of a vent on a residential street on May 3, 2018.

The aid will provide residents with shelter, unemployment, trauma, and legal assistance.

The month-long eruption now covers more than 5,900-acres, a little more than nine square miles.
