  • Here Are Some Insane Videos of the Hawaii Volcano Explosion

The lava is flowing onto streets in the subdivision, which consists of about 770 structures.

A statement released by the governor's office says the "danger is of such magnitude that it warrants preemptive and protective action in order to provide for the safety, health and welfare of the residents". Hawaii's Department of Transportation said there was no damage to roads that had been reported. Military reservists from the National Guard have been sent in to help residents evacuate the area by Hawaii's Gov. David Ige.

"We have to work with them as to how we are going to minimize (the inconveniences) as best as possible", he said.

For residents of the Big Island of Hawaii, Friday was a day of fraught nerves as a strong quake shook their homes, which are increasingly threatened by a volcanic eruption that doesn't show any signs of slowing down. The volcano's lava has already spread 48 square miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

"It has now become unnerving", resident Carol Shepard told KHON.

Tesha "Mirah" Montoya, 45, said toxic fumes escaping from the lava vents weren't enough to make her family evacuate, but the tipping point were the earthquakes. But she says how long it will last will depend on whether the summit magma reservoir gets involved. All residents of Leilani Estates, a community of about 1,700 people near the Big Island's eastern edge, and nearby Lanipuna Gardens have been ordered to evacuate.

"It is more than just a loss of a home", Kim said at a news conference today.

"It sounded like if you were to put a bunch of rocks into a dryer and turn it on as high as you could".




"You could just smell sulfur and burning trees and underbrush and stuff", Osuna said, according to the TV station.

It is highly unusual to see the vents so far from Kilauea volcano, he said. New fissures continued to develop into Friday, with lava flows and clouds of risky sulfur dioxide gas threatening at least two residential subdivisions close to the volcano. The natural disaster, one of dozens to hit the area in 24 hours, was the most powerful on the island since 1975, the US Geological Survey said. Hot vapor emerged from a crack and spattering lava began to erupt.

Hawaii County is ordering evacuations for all homes in Leilani Estates.

Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes and one of five on the island, has been in constant eruption for 35 years.

"I urge residents in Leilani Estates and the surrounding areas to follow instructions".

In the uncertainty, however, some residents found comfort in the abiding beauty of the Big Island. Leilani Estates appeared to be at greatest risk, but scientists said new vents and outbreaks could occur, and it's impossible to say where. Meanwhile the level of the lava lake inside the volcano was continuing to drop.

Less than an hour after the eruption began Thursday, wailing warning sirens joined the cacophony, Maija Stenback, a resident of Leilani Estates, told The Washington Post. The county is ordering evacuations for homes from Luana Street to Pohohiki Road.

The eruption has now forced the mandatory evacuation of the eastern side of the Big Island.

"A collapse of the Pu'u" "O'o crater floor Monday afternoon on Kilauea Volcano's East Rift Zone has prompted an increase in seismicity and deformation along a large section of the rift neon, with seismicity now occurring as far east as Hwy 130". The collapse caused magma to push more than 10 miles (16 kilometers) downslope toward the populated southeast coastline.
