Kilauea volcano's lava could fill 45,400 Olympic-sized swimming pools: USGS

A small explosion occurred at the summit of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii, officials said Sunday morning.

The USGS warns against trying to explore the unsafe ocean entry points because the potentially explosive meeting of lava and water can send debris flying.

Officials on Hawaii's Big Island let some people back into their homes and scaled down emergency operations Monday as lava flowed into the ocean on a path that wasn't threatening new areas.

U.S. Geological Survey and Hawaii County Civil Defense reports said lava overflowed the channel for several hours near the intersection of Highway 132 and Pohoiki Road, though nearly none of the overspill extended beyond hardened lava previously laid down since the eruption in Puna's lower East Rift Zone began May 3 in the middle of the residential subdivision. Residents were warned about minor ash fall as a result of the explosions, but the USGS called the explosions "typical of past events".

Lava was shooting into the sky from one vent and there was "weak" activity at two other fissures, which weren't producing much of a flow and not advancing very far, Babb said. Scientists said a new lava delta has grown to 200 acres, while lava from Fissure 8 bursts 130 to 180 feet up in the air.

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. "FEMA doesn't have a magic wand to make it not happen".

The volcano has presented a myriad of hazards over its 40-day rampage across Big Island.

The lava is also creating laze - lava haze - a deadly mix of hydrochloric acid fumes, steam and tiny specks of volcanic glass, created when lava hits the ocean.

Eruptions on the Big Island started May 3, forcing thousands to flee their homes.
