  • Hawaii: Kilauea volcano erupts again, spews ash up to 12,000 feet

So far, the magma has drained from Kilauea¹s summit lava lake and flowed about 25 miles (40km) east underground, bursting out of about two dozen giant cracks or fissures.

Since Hawaii's Kilauea volcano began a once-in-a-century-scale eruption on May 3, authorities have shutdown the plant, removed over 225,000 litres of flammable liquid, and deactivated wells that tap into steam and gas deep in the Earth's core.

Air pollution - known as vog - pumped out the Kilauea volcano isn't just causing health hazards on Hawaii's Big Island, it's troubling people across the Pacific Ocean.

Evacuation orders were issued for parts of the Leilani Estates subdivision in Puna after lava ravaged 10 houses in the community on Sunday.

Hawaiii County Civil Defense said lava had reached the Puna Geothermal Venture Plant, covering a well.

On Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey's Twitter account took a break from posting updates about Hawaii's Kilauea volcanic eruption to respond to a silly question about snacks. That well, along with a second well 100 feet away, are stable and secured, and are being monitored. There was concern the lava would release hydrogen sulfide or other toxic gases. Its operator, Israeli-controlled Ormat Technologies, said it had not been able to assess the damage.

When the flash flooding receded, first responders walked through the ravaged downtown area, the main street strewn with debris. The Patapsco River, located southeast of Ellicott City, experienced a 17-foot-climb in water levels over those two hours.

Volcanic gas emissions remain high from the fissure eruptions.

There continue to be frequent explosive eruptions at the summit of Kilauea, including one early Monday morning that sent plumes of ash 12,000 to 13,000 feet into the air.

"Several residents were evacuated in advance of the risky and fast-moving flows", the HVO said.

More residents in some sections of the Leilani Estates neighbourhood were ordered to immediately evacuate shortly before 8 p.m.

Those who are healthy, physically active and don't smoke can usually tolerate basic symptoms, Green said, adding hospitals are seeing more patients with difficulty breathing.
