Rivers of lava destroy 600 homes on Hawaii's Big Island - mayor

Hundreds of homes were destroyed and the lava partially filled an ocean bay, creating new land jutting into the ocean.

Kim, who had previously said it would take a minimum of $5 million per mile to fix roads ravaged by Kilauea, said the $12 million will help Hawaii County "focus on the critical tasks of making life better for our people affected by the eruption". Much like the fate of the lava lake in Haleam'uma'u at Kilauea's summit, the lava lake in Pu'u O'o has disappeared since all magma was drained to the eruption site in the lower East Rift Zone from early May.

Hawaii Governor David Ige has signed a memorandum of understanding furnishing millions of dollars in state disaster relief to the island.

A Hawaii volcano continues to erupt from a vent in a Big Island community, sending a stream of lava toward the ocean.

The flow of molten rock prompted warnings from Hawaii County Civil Defense authorities about laze, a noxious combination of lava and haze that sends hydrochloric acid and volcanic glass particles into the air.

Meanwhile, interior and southern areas of the Big Island are expected to have increased levels of vog on Friday night. The oceanfront area, called Vacationland, was wiped out by lava this week. "I'm talking about 600 families".

An estimated 2,500 people have been displaced by evacuations across the island since the eruption began five weeks ago, spouting fountains of lava and high concentrations of toxic sulfur dioxide gas through about two dozen volcanic fissures at the foot of the volcano.

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area with the force of a 5.4 magnitude quake and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level.

Scientists working with the US Geological Survey said that lava flow in Hawaii is still active and there's no way out find out when the eruption will end.

In addition to destroying homes and other structures, lava flows have knocked out telephone and power lines, causing widespread communication outages, and forced the shutdown of a geothermal energy plant that normally provides about a quarter of the island's electricity.
