Minor explosion at Hawaii volcano spews more ash into the air

Minor explosion at Hawaii volcano spews more ash into the air

Also Saturday, there was an explosive eruption of rock and ash at Kilauea's summit at 4:50 a.m. that produced a plume expected to possibly blow to the southwest toward Wood Valley, Pahala and Ocean View.

Meanwhile, officials said Fissure 8 continues to produce a large flow that is entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay and producing a large plume, KHON2 reported.

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area Wednesday with the force of a 5.4 magnitude natural disaster and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level.

Hawaii County Civil Defense said Monday that it's beginning to scale back operations because while lava continues to spew from the earth at a high rate, it's flowing over areas that have already been covered and hitting the sea off coastal communities that have already been destroyed. Many won't: FEMA payments generally won't cover second homes or vacation property or buildings erected without proper permits, and numerous properties in the path of the lava fall into those categories. Residents were warned about minor ash fall as a result of the explosions, but the USGS called the explosions "typical of past events".

No one has died in the Hawaii eruption but some 600 homes have been swallowed by lava flows from Kilauea since May 3.

Another ongoing hazard comes from lava meeting the ocean.

As well as the hundreds of homes lost, Kilauea has destroyed countless other buildings, forced thousands to flee their homes, and engulfed massive expanses of land.
