  • Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano destroys 467 homes

The massive flow of lava traveling through established channels all the way to the ocean, some 8 miles away.

Lava continued to gush from a fissure at the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii's Puna district on Saturday, June 16. The alert also said areas downwind of Kilauea should be prepared for ash.

At 6 a.m. Monday, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported an explosion at the Kilauea summit, with the energy of a 5.3-magnitude natural disaster. Several residents have reported symptoms such as itchy throats and watery eyes and noses in response to the affected air quality, KMGB reports.

Heavy vog is blanketing the interior and southern parts of the island, impacting Hilo and wrapping around to Kona through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Nikki Haley Pummels UN Human Rights Council - Katie Pavlich
Under President Barack Obama the USA was elected for a maximum of two consecutive terms on the council by the UN General Assembly. Bush, the United States withdrew from the council's predecessor, the UN Human Rights Commission, citing similar issues.

Gov. David Ige said Thursday that President Trump approved the request for individual assistance Thursday.

In the lower east rift zone, a vigorous eruption lava continues to pour out of fissure 8, the lava fountaining up to height of 200 feet at times.

Hawaii's eruption, however, has produced slow-moving lava that has destroyed hundreds of structures but allowed people to evacuate, in sharp contrast to Guatemala's Fuego volcano that ejected fast pyroclastic flows, which buried villages in burning ash and killed at least 109 last week.

Ige says qualifying residents may receive help from the federal government for issues such as shelter, unemployment, trauma and legal matters.
