Lava continues to flow from Hawaii volcano

Lava continues to flow from Hawaii volcano

Kilauea's eruption is its most destructive in modern times, Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim said.

"The ocean entry is a hazardous area".

A river of molten rock is flowing toward a community that got wiped out last week. "FEMA doesn't have a magic wand to make it not happen".

Scientists say they are not sure when the eruptions will end.

PAHOA The mighty fissure 8 in Leilani Estates continued to make Hawaii island a little bigger Saturday, pumping lava that stayed for the most part in a stream-like channel exiting into the ocean about 8 miles away near the island's eastern tip. Gas emissions from the vent have doubled.

In the meantime, fewer workers are needed to staff a 24-hour operations center and officials are reducing checkpoints, Magno said. Last week, lava from the fissures filled Kapoho Bay.

Supreme Court allows Ohio voter purge
That's because minorities, young people and those with lower incomes are more likely to be disenfranchised by the state's policy. In recent years, the courts blocked states from verifying the citizenship status of individuals registering to vote.

The federal agency also reported a new 5.3 magnitude quake at 02:52 pm BST that had Kilauea unleash yet another plume of ash and smoke from its summit.

"Just a few days ago Kapoho Bay was a attractive vacation destination, filled with vacation homes, lovely beaches and clear water", Forbes wrote last week.

A small explosion on the summit of Kilauea volcano has triggered an quake but there are no reports of damage.

A National Weather Service radar unit has been helping provide data about the heights of the ash plumes and the direction of ash fall. Ash expelled from the Kilauea volcano may cause poor visibility and slippery conditions for drivers.

Another ongoing hazard comes from lava meeting the ocean.

"Venturing too close to an ocean entry on land or the ocean exposes you to flying debris from sudden explosive interaction between lava and water", the observatory said.
