According to the USGS, an average of two large explosions a day are sending ash as high as 10,000 feet above sea level, though smaller emissions of ash occur more often. There was concern the lava would release hydrogen sulfide or other toxic gases.

Firefighters also had to lead a man from his home near Kilauea late on Sunday after he was trapped by fast-moving lava, Hawaii News Now reported.

"Lava flow from Fissures 7 and 21 crossed into PGV property overnight and has now covered one well that was successfully plugged", the civil defense said.

The U.S. Geological Survey said sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano have more than doubled since the current eruption began.

The new fissure sent more lava into the to evacuated Leilani Estates district in the eastern corner of Hawaii's Big Island.

It started erupting on May 3, prompting about 2,000 people to flee from their mountainside homes. She's a former smoker, "so that's probably part of the problem, " she said.


Retired photojournalist Chris Stewart says there's one good thing about vog: It intensifies the colors of a sunset.

Operator Ormat Technologies Inc last week said there was no above-ground damage to the plant but it would have to wait until the situation stabilised to assess the impact of earthquakes and lava flows.

According to Hawaii County Civil Defense, no hydrogen sulfide gas has been detected at the site.
