Volcanic lava buries two housing tracts on Hawaii's Big…

Most of the Kapoho area including the tide pools is now covered in fresh lava with few properties still intact as the Kilauea Volcano lower east rift zone eruption continues on Wednesday June 6

The latest eruption began early Tuesday morning and was so powerful that it spewed ash almost a mile into the air and sparked a 5.5 magnitude quake, scientists say.

The Article from Satellite images confirm the intensity of devastation caused by Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii: A river of hot lava fills up an entire ocean bay.

The U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaii Volcano Observatory reports that lava "continues unabated" from Fissure 8, near the most populous area, with fountains of lava shooting as high as 200 feet in the air.

Kim, who had previously said it would take a minimum of $5 million per mile to fix roads ravaged by Kilauea, said the $12 million will help Hawaii County "focus on the critical tasks of making life better for our people affected by the eruption".

The U.S. Geological Survey released drone footage of the lava flowing from the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island.

Meanwhile, lava from Fissure 8 continued to creep, after inundating Kapoho Bay and decimating what could be hundreds of houses in the nearby communities of Kapoho and Vacationland. A plume of toxic volcanic lava haze, called laze, stretched for miles. "There are flows on the Kona side of the island that are much older than some flows on east Hawaii, they are much older but they have far less vegetation and that's just a reflection of the difference in rainfall".

"Rainfall really makes a difference", said Hawaii Volcanoes National Park spokeswoman Jessica Ferracane.

But the land is still highly unpredictable, and once the lava cools and hardens it will leave behind a jagged, scorched landscape with razor-sharp shards of volcanic rock.

Vacationland had about 150 homes and Kapoho, about 350 homes.

Several miles (km) west of Kapoho Bay, another 80 structures, mostly homes, were destroyed weeks ago in the Leilani Estates community, where lava-spouting fissures in the ground first opened on May 3 on the volcano's lower flank, according to civil defense officials.
