Ash Eruption At Kilauea Summit Registered As 5.4 quake

APLava fills Hawaii ocean bay

The latest estimate of property losses from Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, far surpasses the 215 structures consumed by lava during an earlier eruption cycle that began in 1983 and continued almost nonstop over three decades.

This Wednesday, June 6, 2018 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey shows Kilauea's lower East Rift Zone, showing continued fountaining of a fissure and the lava flow channel fed by it near the town of Kapoho on the island of Hawaii.

A woman who evacuated her Hawaii home because of an erupting volcano says she filmed an angry neighbor shooting at a man near a lava flow.

A magnitude 5.6 quake has struck the summit of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano summit, sending a plume of ash and rock about 10,000 feet into the sky.

Also present at the press conference, Hawaii Governor David Ige said state will allocate 12 million USA dollars to help respond to the eruption, covering expenses ranging from overtime work to food and equipment. The USGS also released footage showing lava stream that emerged from Fissure 8 and filled Kapoho Bay.

Lava completely covered the Big Island's Vacationland neighborhood, destroying hundreds of homes and pouring into the Kapoho Bay, where it formed at least 0.8 miles of land that juts into the sea, the Associated Press reports.

It won't look like the farmland that dominates that region of the Big Island anytime soon.

More news: Fox News host sorry for calling Trump, Kim 'two dictators'

Geologists on Hawaii's Big Island are expecting further seismic activity to intensify and cause more explosions at the Kilauea summit.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park spokeswoman Jessica Ferracane said there were several earthquakes at the summit early this morning.

While the new land is owned by the state, people that have private property in the affected areas will still own their land, although it will need to be reassessed once the lava stops flowing. The lava, which has covered more than 5,000 acres in this latest eruption that began on May 3, is very thick.

As of early Friday 24 separate fissures covered almost 8 square miles of land in lava.

There are no homes left in the Vacationland subdivision and neighboring Kapoho has only a few homes left standing.

According to Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim, lava has destroyed more than 600 homes since early last month.
