Lava from Hawaii volcano destroys hundreds more homes

Four weeks have passed since the first eruption rocked Hawaii's Big Island and lava continues oozing from volcanic fissures, burning homes to the ground and turning into rivers of molten rock.

On Tuesday, a civil defense official told Reuters that at least 60 to 80 more homes were believed to have been devoured as the lava flow, measuring about a half-mile (80-meter) wide and 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.6 meter) tall, inundated the adjacent subdivisions of Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland. These were vacation homes and rentals, as well as primary residences. Kapoho Bay, famous for its tide pools, was completely filled by lava Tuesday. No injuries were reported in the area because it was evacuated.

Lava claimed Harry Pomerleau's home in Vacationland. Lava destroyed hundreds of homes in mostly rural Hawaii area overnight, a county spokeswoman said.
