Some people evacuated by Hawaii lava go home

More Small Blasts from Hawaii Volcano

Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has destroyed about 600 to 700 homes since it began flowing early last month and there's no sign of it stopping anytime soon, officials said Monday.

Geologists issued the new estimate Tuesday, saying the delta created by several active flows cascading into the ocean is at least 1 1/2-miles across.

Bob Fenton, FEMA administrator for Region IX, told reporters Monday he conducted an overflight of lava-ravaged areas and was "amazed at the amount of devastation".

Fissure 8 continues to produce a large channelized flow that is entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay and producing a large laze plume, civil defense reported Sunday morning.

Because tradewind conditions returned, vog was projected to carry to the south and west sides of the island, while plumes of noxious gas coming out of the ocean around the new Kapoho coastline were pushing those emissions south, farther out over the ocean. Half of the residents of a subdivision that had been ordered to evacuate after a fissure opened there on May 3 were being allowed to return starting last week.

Deas said he's not authorized to discuss details of the potential purse and that the venue and date are up to Joshua's camp. "Today I even agreed to their offer to fight Joshua next in the United Kingdom ", he said in the tweet.

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area Wednesday with the force of a 5.4 magnitude quake and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level.

A small explosion at the summit of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano shot more ash high into the atmosphere, putting communities in the southern part of the Big Island at risk, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said.

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.

"To all the victims out there of this very, very bad time, I say it publicly, it hurts like hell today", Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim said at a news conference late Monday.
