More Small Blasts from Hawaii Volcano

Also Saturday, there was an explosive eruption of rock and ash at Kilauea's summit at 4:50 a.m. that produced a plume expected to possibly blow to the southwest toward Wood Valley, Pahala and Ocean View.

Latest updates from USGS at 09:32 pm BST said: "A line of closely spaced vents at Fissure 8 are continuing to erupt producing fountains reaching heights up to 160 feet, just higher than the spatter cone around them".

The volcanic gas and ash emission could affect air quality across the central and southern half of Big Island, Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency said.

His definition of stable means that lava continues to flow along a path toward the ocean that isn't threatening additional areas. The fissure's plumes of lava are feeding a fast-moving channel that is flooding into the sea at Kapoho Bay-an area that was recently an oceanside resort.

Lava from the Kilauea volcano continues to erupt from a fissure and forms a river of lava flowing down to Kapoho.

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area Wednesday with the force of a 5.4 magnitude quake and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level. Scientists warn against venturing too close to where the lava is entering the ocean, saying it could expose people to dangers from flying debris.

The Hawaii eruption, with high walls of slow-moving lava, has engulfed about 600 homes since May 3, Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim said last week.

Another ongoing hazard comes from lava meeting the ocean.

The eruption has also had a toll on the area's tourism industry, with many afraid to travel to the island.

He also said the federal agency doesn't have a magic wand and won't be able to make everyone whole.

As well as the hundreds of homes lost, Kilauea has destroyed countless other buildings, forced thousands to flee their homes, and engulfed massive expanses of land.
