Residents flee lava from Hawaiian volcano

Hawaii volcano eruption: drone video shows Mount Kilaueu spewing lava

He said the experience has been unforgettable and different than other eruptions he's filmed.

They could eventually consolidate into one powerful vent, as has happened in some previous Hawaii eruptions, Stovall said.

Active venting of lava and hazardous fumes continues between Mohala and Pomaikai Street. Much of the area filled with lava in just four hours.

"Scientists on the ground are reporting that lava flows are traveling through the forest, power lines are coming down, and a few explosions have been heard _ likely from propane tanks or methane explosions", Stovall said. "That methane gas can get trapped in pockets beneath lava flows or underground, and explode out violently, throwing rocks and debris in every direction", Stovall said.

Puna has thick jungle as well as dark fields of lava rock from past eruptions. The mayor said people who want to check on their homes would be allowed into the neighborhoods.

The station reported that a fountain of lava there soared more than 200 feet in the air overnight. On Sunday, a lava flow was moving away from Fissure No. 8 at significantly less than 1 miles per hour, Stovall said.

In another portion of the video, lava easily pushes through a gate as vegetation burns on either side of what appears to be a road or driveway.

The activity will continue, Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno said Friday.

The volcano eruption in Hawaii has caused a large-scale evacuation in the Leilani estates residential area, home to about 1,500 people.

No injuries had been reported, but a state of emergency remains in effect on Big Island.

The Kilauea volcano is still erupting on Hawaii's big island Monday morning for the fifth day in a row, with no end in sight.

"A collapse of the Pu'u" "O'o crater floor Monday afternoon on Kilauea Volcano's East Rift Zone has prompted an increase in seismicity and deformation along a large section of the rift neon, with seismicity now occurring as far east as Hwy 130". The volcano has been active since 1983, and in 2014 it destroyed one home and engulfed an entire cemetery before stopping short of the main road.

A column of robust, reddish-brown ash plume occurred after a magnitude 6.9 South Flank of KÄ«lauea natural disaster shook the Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii. Although the quake could be felt across much of the archipelago, the worst shaking occurred in an area with no neighborhoods or businesses.

"The best way to protect yourself and your family from the extremely risky volcanic gases is to leave the immediate area of the volcano defined by the police and fire department", it said.

When that pressure built up, the surface around that had to move _ producing sudden earth movement on a fault plane that separates the ancient sea floor and Kilauea volcano. It's unclear if any of the affected residents on Big Island has that kind of coverage.

Kilauea has been in constant eruption for 35 years and is one of the world's oldest volcanoes.

Still, the county civil defense agency highlighted that the situation is not the time for sightseeing.
