Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano creates almost a mile of new land

Ash Eruption At Kilauea Summit Registered As 5.4 Earthquake Lava destroys 600 homes on Hawaii's Big Island - mayor

That help came Thursday after Hawaii Gov. David Ige signed a memorandum of understanding that freed up $12 million in immediate disaster relief to the island. The eruption is one of the most destructive in US history, though amazingly no one has been killed and only one injury has been reported. The fissure 8 flow has created a lava delta approximately 190 acres in size, filling Kapoho Bay and shallow reefs along the nearby coastline.

Kilauea is the youngest and most active Hawaiian shield volcano, located on the southern part of the Island of Hawai'i, known as Big Island. In the weeks since, Hawaii's largest freshwater lake, Green Lake, has evaporated.

Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim says lava from Kilauea volcano has destroyed more than 600 homes since early last month.

"Lava continues to enter the ocean along a broad front in Kapoho Bay and the Vacationland area and it continues to creep north of what remains of Kapoho Beach Lots", USGS geologist Janet Babb told Associated Press. That's on top of the losses at Leilani Estates, one of the first areas to feel the destructive power of Kilauea.

The eruption has spewed out enough lava to fill 45,400 Olympic-sized pools since it started, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

Hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and thousands of people displaced.

Seaside residents and boaters also have been warned to avoid noxious clouds of laze - a term derived from the words "lava" and "haze" - formed when lava reacts with seawater to form a mix of acid fumes, steam and glass-like particles when it flows into the ocean.

The destruction of Vacationland was triggered by a 5.6 magnitude quake that hit the summit of the Kilauea volcano.

It has forced the shutdown of a geothermal energy plant that normally provides about a quarter of the island's electricity.
