Lava from Kilauea volcano destroys Hawai'i County mayor's home

Lava from Kilauea volcano destroys Hawai'i County mayor's home

This stunning video from The US Geological Survey captures all the insanity of molten lava pouring into the ocean after the eruption of Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island a month ago. About 80 of those were destroyed in the Leilani Estates community, where lava-spouting fissures in the ground first opened on May 3 downhill from the volcano's eastern flank.

Lava flows have knocked out telephone and power lines, causing widespread communication outages, and forced the shutdown of a geothermal energy plant that normally provides about a quarter of the island's electricity.

This combines a toxic steam, known as laze - combining the words lava and haze - and contains tiny particles of volcanic gas. This doesn't mean all homes were affected, but authorities will have to count and match the areas with property maps.

Many island residents have lost everything.

Carolyn Boudreault, a Kapoho resident who is now staying in Boston with her family, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that the bay was a treasured place.

Rafael Nadal given quarter-final rain reprieve against Diego Schwartzman
Rafael Nadal's grip on the French Open title was in danger of being loosened by the unlikely figure of Diego Schwartzman . The Romanian broke serve six times against a player who made the semi-finals at the Australian Open in January.

"Right now, we don't have anything".

"The most recent aerial surveillance appears to show that Mayor Kim's house in lower Puna was destroyed sometime today by the lava flow", said David Mace, spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management.

"I just locked my doors and walked away", said Betty Oberman, a 28-year Vacationland resident who headed the neighborhood watch organization there.

This image from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) shows shows the lava flow originating from Fissure 8 (not visible in photograph) entering Kapoho Bay on Monday.

Jessica Ferracane, a spokeswoman for Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, insisted earthquakes can not be predicted, adding to the stream of fears on the island.

Continued earthquakes, including Sunday's magnitude 5.5 quake, damaged the overlook deck and other features at Jagger Museum in the national park, where most visitors go to see the summit lava lake, park spokeswoman Jessica Ferracane said.
