New crack opens at Hawaii volcano

New crack opens at Hawaii volcano”

Thousands of people have fled their homes on Hawaii's Big Island because of lava and toxic gases, and dozens of homes have been destroyed.

Kilauea erupted last week, sending 2,200-degree lava bursting through cracks into people's backyards in the Leilani Estates neighborhood that destroyed 36 structures, including 26 homes. Further, "elevated natural disaster activity and ground deformation continue and additional outbreaks in the area remain likely", the report said.

When you start seeing ferns go brown overnight, it's like, 'Wow, I gotta get out of here, ' he said.

During an evening meeting with community members, an official with the United States Geological Survey's Hawaii Volcano Observatory said that while no new fissures have opened during the last 24 hours, there has been "quite a bit" of ground cracking over the last day and that they were releasing steam.

Geologists are warning a possible explosion at the summit of Kilauea could be the largest in almost 100 years, hurling boulders the size of refrigerators. Hotspots include either lava flows or new fissures, which show up as yellow to the ASTER. Lava flows from the volcano, one of five on the island, have buried an area about 125 square kilometers, according to the USGS.

What followed was a flurry of earthquakes as huge volumes of magma - the term for lava beneath the surface - drained back through deep-underground passages that carried the molten rock far downslope.

But as the eruption progresses, "other areas of the lower East Rift Zone may also be at risk", the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said in a bulletin.

The unique images allow scientists to track lava moment as well as the direction that sulfur dioxide is drifting as one of the world's most active volcanoes continues to change.

She said that's why the lava has been cool and has been moving a little sluggishly.

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has been continuously erupting for years, but an uptick in eruptions and earthquakes in recent days have ramped up the danger for residents of Hawaii's Big Island.
