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

United States Geological Survey shows lava flowing out of Kilauea Volcanos fissure 8 on Hawaiis Big Island and then entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay and Vacationland

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, 2018, in Pahoa, Hawaii.

Also present at the press conference, Hawaii Governor David Ige said state will allocate 12 million USA dollars to help respond to the eruption, covering expenses ranging from overtime work to food and equipment.

So too have airborne volcanic glass fibers, called "Pele's Hair", wispy strands carried aloft by the wind from lava fountains and named for the volcanic goddess of Hawaiian myth.

Roughly a mile of new land formed after lava from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano spilled into a nearby bay has some wondering who the new terrain belongs to.

It won't look like the farmland that dominates that region of the Big Island anytime soon.

Increased quake activity in the region earlier in the day fit what Stovall called a "pattern" for explosive eruptions at Kilauea's summit.

Defoe added that he feels "blessed and humbled" to get the honour, described it as his biggest achievement to date. Professor Chambers has received the award of Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AO).

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.

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

"Our responsibility is to try to work with the community to rebuild out of harm's way", Kim said.

HVO said the lava delta is 1.2 miles wide and added that "ocean entry is sending a large laze plume into the air along the coastline". The latest estimate of property losses came after Hawaii Governor David Ige signed a document that enables financial support from a state disaster relief fund. People that have private property in the affected areas will still own their land, though it will need to be reassessed once the lava stops flowing.

It has been spewing molten lava, toxic gases, and spreading fissures since May 3.

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.
