HAWAII’S Mount Kilauea continues its fiery rampage across Big Island, destroying hundreds of homes as lava t >

Kilauea has been in an active cycle for the last 35 years but turned explosive when a magnitude 6.9 earthquake rocked the area in late April. This is being cited as an unprecedented event, as there are two eruptions occurring simultaneously. The first is the eruption at Kilauea’s summit crater, and the second along a six-mile string of fissures 25 miles down its east flank. A new eruption occurred at the summit erupt on Sunday, sending a new ash cloud into the air, creating a hazard for drivers and aircraft.

In addition to the hazard of the ash cloud, some of the 25 fissures which have opened since May 3 continue to fountain lava. Some of these fountains are reaching as high as 55 metres (180 feet). The lava flows – huge tides of which had devoured swathes of the island – are pouring into the ocean. So far, it is estimated by Hawaii officials that around 600 homes have been destroyed in this latest period of activity.

Most noticeable is the Kapoho Bay area, which has been entirely reshaped by lava, as is evident in the before and after images. A spokesperson for Hawaii County Civil Defence said: “What used to be the bay is now all lava bed, new land, almost a mile out into the ocean.” Approximately eight square miles of Hawaii’s Big Island has been covered by lava since this period of activity began on May 3.

The volcano has presented a myriad of hazards over its 40-day rampage across Big Island. Residents have battled vog – volcanic smog – toxic sulphurous gas. The lava is also creating laze – lava haze – a deadly mix of hydrochloric acid fumes, steam and tiny specks of volcanic glass, created when lava hits the ocean.

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. The eruption has also had a toll on the area’s tourism industry, with many afraid to travel to the island. There is no end in sight for the volcano, with scientists warning the current activity is indicative of lava deep within the volcano fuelling further eruptions.
