Lava flows cut off access to more Hawaii neighborhoods

Lava flows cut off access to more Hawaii neighborhoods

People living near Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano have been airlifted out to escape flowing lava. Emergency responders have no plans to rescue anyone from the evacuated areas past the deadline, the agency said.

Lava from a fissure near the volcano entered Kapoho Bay overnight, forcing billowing clouds of steam into the atmosphere as hot lava hit the cool water of the Pacific Ocean.

"We're not going to run in there and drag them out", Magno said.

"The faults that are being stressed are shallow (likely less than 2 miles deep), so the earthquakes are shallow, which means that they have been widely felt by residents near the summit area".

The report of mounting damage followed a mandatory evacuation order issued Thursday night for a portion of the Leilani Estates subdivision in the midst of "vigorous lava eruptions" threatening homes, the Civil Defense said.

CNN reported Sunday that the residents chose to remain in the area despite warnings from Hawaiian officials that lava would cut off evacuation routes.

Lava also destroyed a freshwater lake, boiling away all of the water in it, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said.

Mehana Kihoi hands out goods to Leilani Estate evacuees at the community organized Pu'uhonua o Puna, a center to help those affected by the recent lava eruption, in Pahoa, Hawaii, May 29, 2018.

A river of lava spewing from the foot of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano swallowed about three dozen more homes on the Big Island this weekend. Picture taken May 3, 208.

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.

For those whose homes have been unscathed, the prolonged strain of uncertainty has grown increasingly hard.

"My husband's lived here for 12 years, and I've lived here for four", she said. "It's so sharp, it feels like the glass is still in there".

Lava burned two buildings at the plant, a substation and a warehouse that stored a drilling rig on the property, officials said. At present, Kilauea volcano is still having one of the most long-lived eruptions known on earth, which started in 1983 on the eastern rift zone and has mainly been concentrated at the Pu'u 'O'o vent.

At the crater, volcanic explosions are being recorded, with some of the ash reaching up to 8000 feet.
