New fissure in Hawaii, lava flows toward ocean

New fissure in Hawaii, lava flows toward ocean

Fissures have caused lava to shoot into the air and leave behind steam that can be seen rising through cracks in roadways. People nixing vacations to Hawaii's Big island has cost the tourism industry millions of dollars as the top attraction, Kilauea volcano, keeps spewing lava.

The county says the warnings apply to an area near the vents in the southeast section of the Lanipuna Gardens neighborhood and surrounding farm lots.

Lava flowing from giant rips in the earth on the flank of Hawaii's Kilauea threatened highways yesterday, raising the possibility that officials will order thousands more residents to evacuate before access routes are cut off.

The incident drained the lava lake of the volcano into the surrounding parts of the island and, since then, has only gotten worse.

The Big Island tourism board estimates $5 million worth of cancellations from May through July.

One concern right now is that residents could be trapped by lava flows, toxic fumes, and debris if the volcano erupts.

Tourism on the island brought in $2.5 billion in revenue previous year.

The eruptions from Kilauea volcano began on May 3, since opening up 17 fissures throughout the area.

The National Weather Service has warned residents of "light ashfall" throughout the day in the island's southernmost district after a burst of volcanic emissions.

"Eruption of lava continues from multiple points along the northeast end of the active fissure system", the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said in a briefing.

Barrios took shelter on the deck of a neighbor's house as he filmed the fissure spew lava into the air.

Geologists yesterday warned that Kilauea may be entering a more violent phase of explosive eruptions, the likes of which Hawaii has not seen in almost a century.

Back in 1924, Hawaii's Big Island erupted in a massive explosion due to intense pressure build up in the main vent. Officials fear the unpredictability of the volcano, and how long the eruption will last is unclear.

An active fissure that was reported Sunday morning initially was called No. 18 but will be labeled No. 17.

The video, shot by Jeremiah Osuna and posted to Facebook, reveals the scale of the lava flow and makes it very clear why mandatory evacuations were issues for the area despite the initial eruption being rather mild.

They are ordering residents on that road to evacuate.
