Hawaii volcano eruption: Satellite images show DEVASTATING impact of Mount Kilauea

U.S. Geological Survey map

Lava destroys homes in the Kapoho area, east of Pahoa, during ongoing eruptions of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii, June 5, 2018. Note the red colours along the northern margin of the broad area - this is where the flow began expanding into Beach Lots yesterday. The crater now has a funnel shape geometry with a deep cylindrical shaft, filled with rubble.

Given the dynamic nature of Kīlauea's lower East Rift Zone eruption, with changing vent locations, fissures starting and stopping, and varying rates of lava effusion, map details shown here are accurate as of the date/time noted.

Since the Kilauea volcano first erupted in Leilani Estates on May 3, it has spread more than four billion cubic feet of lava on Hawaii's biggest island.

Lava from a fissure near the volcano spewed into Kapoho Bay forcing billowing clouds of steam into the atmosphere.

Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim, whose home was among those lost, said the increased toll makes the Kilauea eruption the most catastrophic event in the state's history.

Miss America to Scrap Swimsuit, Evening Gown Competitions
Following Carlson's announcement, some on Twitter have praised Miss America for making a change that they believe is long overdue. Miss America will no longer judge candidates "on their outward physical appearance", the beauty pageant has announced .

HVO said the lava delta is 1.2 miles wide and added that "ocean entry is sending a large laze plume into the air along the coastline".

Depending on climate, rainfall and other variables, new vegetation could start growing soon, but it would take much longer for the fertile land and lush rainforests to build back up. A plume of toxic volcanic lava haze, called laze, stretched for miles. Phil Ong compares this to the 35 years long eruption that had been going on at Pu'u O'o prior to the start of this eruption, and notices that although the eruption rate is about 25 times higher, is not almost a match to the ca.

Hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and thousands of people displaced.

USGS officials also say there is no way to know when the eruption will end or if more fissures will open.
