Residents told 'go now' as fresh fissure opens in Hawaii

Reuters reports fountains of lava had spewed up to 300 feet from the vents and more than 115 acres of land have been scorched by lava so far.

Locations within several miles of the summit would be subject to falls of marble-sized rocks, fine-grained material and ash.

It may also send pebbles shooting into the air several miles (kilometres) away.

The US Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory Wednesday has warned of possible eruptions in the coming week.

"If an explosion happens, there's a risk at all scales". Falling rocks are common since the lava lake level has dropped quickly, and exposed the walls.

If the level drops down to the water table where groundwater is, the hot molten rock interacting with the water will cause the steam pressure to build up.

"Scientists at (the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory) have their work cut out for them right now, with the ongoing eruption at Leilani Estates still producing new fissures and now the potential that the summit might produce something more explosive", he wrote in his blog.

And if that's not enough to get tired Big Island residents' attention, agencies say such explosions "provide very little warning".

Fine ash would be only a millimetre or less in size. Ash could cause eye and respiratory irritation, cut back visibility and intrude with electrical strains, the Los Angeles Instances reported.

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano continues to erupt, discharging red lava and gas from multiple cracks in the earth. That's because an influx of water inside could cause steam-driven explosions.


Scientists acknowledge having no idea how much longer the latest upheaval will last, though there were clear signs something was brewing before it started.

"For the most part if you have a homeowners fire policy, if your home catches fire and burns down, then its covered under the fire loss", Ito said.

At least 15 volcanic fissures have opened up in and around the Leilani Estates, the newest crack opening this afternoon.

But the eruptions could resume.

The amount of acid rain depends on the concentration of sulfur dioxide in the air, CNN's Guy says.

Puna Geothermal Venture could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Residents were being allowed to check on their properties from 7 a.m.to 6 p.m. each day but must be prepared to leave at a moment's notice, the Hawaii County Civil Defence Agency says. He put the number of people staying behind in the affected subdivisions at "less than a dozen". Seven private roads and two public roads have been turned impassable by lava flows.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park will close Friday due to the possibility of explosive steam at the summit of Kilauea volcano, according the National Park Service.

A recent volcanic activity has been witnessed in the Hawaii islands. The closest resorts, in Kona and the Kohala Coast, are more than 100 miles away on the west side of the island.
