The newest flow appears to be heading towards the ocean and a highway.
Although no deaths or major injuries have been reported following the Hawaii volcano eruption, several homes have been destroyed. People nixing vacations to Hawaii's Big island has cost the tourism industry millions of dollars as the top attraction, Kilauea volcano, keeps spewing lava. The industry grew the fastest on the Big Island previous year compared to other islands in the archipelago, pulling in about $2.5 billion in visitor spending. Board executive director Ross Birch says this is the "first leak we're seeing out of the bucket".
Since eruptions began 10 days ago, dozens of homes have been destroyed and officials have ordered the evacuations of almost 2000 people in the lower Puna district of the Big Island, home to around 187,000 residents.
Lava explosions, known as "spatter bombs", have launched hundreds of feet into the air over the past two days according to the U.S. Geological Survey, as observers documented the opening of the two newest fissures. The agency said one "unidentified structure" was destroyed by the new vent, bringing the total number of homes and other buildings lost to lava to almost 40.
Since the Kilauea volcano erupted, there hasn't been much of a break for residents of the southeast portion of the Big Island, who've been grappling with evacuations, lava and sulfur dioxide.
Geologists warn that Kilauea's summit could have an explosive steam eruption that would hurl huge rocks and ash miles into the sky.
Almost 20 volcanic fissures have opened and are spewing lava and poisonous gas across the big island Tuesday morning. Officials fear the unpredictability of the volcano, and how long the eruption will last is unclear.
Hawaii County Civil Defense issued an emergency cellphone alert after the fissure was discovered early Sunday morning.
These are steam-driven explosions that occur when water beneath the ground or on the surface is heated by magma, lava, hot rocks, or new volcanic deposits, according to USGS.
And two more fissures opened yesterday, bring the total number to 19 and threatening to cut off vital escape routes for locals.
