Hawaii Volcano's Bubbling Lava Is Enough To Cover Manhattan

"The ocean entry is a hazardous area". Scientists warn against venturing too close to where the lava is entering the ocean, saying it could expose people to dangers from flying debris.

"Additionally, the interaction of lava with the ocean creates "laze", a corrosive seawater plume laden with hydrochloric acid and fine volcanic particles that can irritate the skin, eyes, and lungs".

At Kilauea's summit, there continue to be explosions that shoot plumes of ash into the sky.

U.S. Geological Survey and Hawaii County Civil Defense reports said lava overflowed the channel for several hours near the intersection of Highway 132 and Pohoiki Road, though nearly none of the overspill extended beyond hardened lava previously laid down since the eruption in Puna's lower East Rift Zone began May 3 in the middle of the residential subdivision.

Vents at Fissure 8 continue to erupt, sending lava fountains as high as 160 feet, the United States Geological Survey reported late Monday night.

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.

He said: "We can't fix everything".

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

No one has been killed by this period of activity, but one man was seriously injured when a lava bomb hit him in the leg.

Hawaii is still enduring the devastating effects of the erupting Kilauea Volcano on its Big Island.

Fissure 8 is also spewing volcanic glass and gas.

The ongoing lava flows have forced thousands of people from their homes, although many have been allowed to return on a temporary basis, particularly in the Leilani Estates area.

The current lava eruption began May 3 in the Leilani Estates neighborhood, about 35 miles away from the island's largest city of Hilo.
