Lava from the Kilauea volcano destroyed hundreds of homes on the Big Island overnight.

Janet Snyder said Tuesday that hundreds of homes were lost Monday night in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland.

Another three-dozen homes were confirmed destroyed at the weekend when a large lava stream creeping 6 miles across the landscape reached the far eastern edge of the Big Island, pouring into the ocean at Kapoho Bay. The lava pushed into beach lots in Kapoho, which has about 350 homes and Vacationland, which has about 150. These were vacation homes and rentals, as well as primary residences.

Incredible footage shows colossal steam clouds rising from the ocean in Hawaii after lava flows from the Kilauea volcano entered the sea at Kapoho Bay. But with the latest releases of lava showing few signs of subsiding, residents are bracing for the possibility that the monthlong phase of the eruption could stretch for weeks or even months.

Hawaii Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno told reporters that people needed to stay at least 1,000 feet back from the bay to avoid health effects from the laze, in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency standards. (Reuters/Terray Sylvester) Lava flows into the Pacific Ocean.

"I just locked my doors and walked away", 28-year Vacationland resident Betty Oberman said.

"God only knows what it's going to do next", Johnson said.

Almost a dozen people were left stranded in an area cut off by lava on Sunday.

Okabe estimated there are several hundred homes in each of the two subdivisions. Most of those homes are believed to have been lost.

"It's a handsome blue day, but it really seems eerie up there, lots and lots of ash covering areas near Jagger Museum and the earthquakes really make things seem very unsettled", she said.
