After wiping out hundreds of homes, Kilauea lava forms new coastline

Lava destroys 600 homes on Hawaii's Big Island - mayor

An ever-creeping wall of lava from Kilauea Volcano has engulfed two entire seaside housing tracts at the eastern tip of Hawaii's Big Island, government scientists reported on Wednesday, an area where civil defense officials said almost 280 homes once stood.

The ownership of this so-called "lava extension" has been determined by a 1955 Supreme Court ruling.

As the fiery eruption of Kilauea continues to force evacuations on the Big Island of Hawaii, authorities are warning about other phenomena that could harm those in the area.

Since May 3rd, Kilauea's lava, ash and rocks have destroyed about 600 homes, closed major highways and prompted health warnings. This is good news for the dozens of homeowners whose properties were wiped out.

Fast-moving lava from fissure 8 poured into the low-laying coastal Hawaii neighborhoods in just two days this week, destroying hundreds of homes.

Hawaii county Mayor Harry Kim on Thursday said the homes were destroyed in three days at Vacationland and Kapoho Beach Lots in Pahoa, including the Mayor's own house in Vacationland, Xinhua news agency reported.

The HVO says the point at which the lava enters the ocean is particularly hazardous.

Lava erupts in Leilani Estates during ongoing eruptions of the Kilauea Volcano.

Officials with the U.S. Geological Survey said Wednesday that the entire neighborhood of Vacationland has been covered by lava, and the nearby Kapoho subdivision has only a few structures remaining.

"Rainfall really makes a difference", Hawaii Volcanoes National Park spokeswoman Jessica Ferracane said. Lava has since been pouring out of large fissures in the earth and down to the ocean. HVO/USGS reports that tollowing a magnitude-3.2 quake at the summit, twelve rockfalls were recorded in Puʻu ʻŌʻō between 10:31 and 10:56 AM on Friday 8 June, with a prominent, but brief, red dust plume ejected into the air around 10:50 AM.

The most recent eruption included new lava flows through Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland that destroyed almost 500 homes.
