County Managing Director Wil Okabe said his own vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots was also threatened.
Another three-dozen homes were confirmed destroyed this past weekend when a large lava stream creeping 6 miles (9.7 km) across the landscape reached the far eastern edge of the Big Island, pouring into the ocean at a place called Kapoho Bay.
Mounting property losses were reported a day after five or six people who initially chose to stay in the newly evacuated Kapoho area after road access was cut off were rescued by helicopter, according to the Hawaii County Civil Defense agency. These were vacation homes and rentals, as well as primary residences.
Civil defense officials said Kapoho Bay itself had been filled in with lava that extended seven-tenths of a mile from what had been the shoreline. Lava has inundated most of Vacationland and has covered all but the northern part of Kapoho Beach Lots.
