Some Lava Evacuees Allowed Back Into Their Homes During ‘Stable’ Flow

Some Lava Evacuees Allowed Back Into Their Homes During ‘Stable’ Flow

A large flow of lava from a fissure that has already destroyed hundreds of homes is continuing to enter the ocean at Kapoho Bay.

Since May 3, Kilauea's lava, ash and rocks have destroyed about 600 homes, closed major highways and prompted health warnings. "A lot of, 'What now?'" said Big Island Mayor Harry Kim, who spoke at a news conference Monday. "While the eruption is never predictable, conditions appear stable for the moment", Richard Rapoza, a spokesman for Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, said in an email. Magno says additional workers can be called in if conditions change.

In the meantime, fewer workers are needed to staff a 24-hour operations center and officials are reducing checkpoints, Magno said. A fissure is shooting fountains of lava into the air, which is flowing to the ocean. Half of the residents of a subdivision that had been ordered to evacuate after a fissure opened there on May 3 were being allowed to return starting last week.

The Kapoho ocean entry area continued to produce robust plumes, and USGS said "observers also noted vigorous convection taking place up to 0.9 miles offshore from the entry points".

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 5.2 natural disaster happened around 4:50 a.m. Saturday on the Big Island and felt as far as Hilo.

Those earthquakes have continued near the summit, according to Jim Kauahikaua, a geophysicist with the US Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. But the unit has been broken since Thursday.
