More evacuations ordered on Hawaii's Big Island as volcano activity intensifies

Lava from the Kilauea volcano eruption crosses Kahukai Street

The number of houses and other structures destroyed by lava flows in the island's lower Puna district leapt to 82 on Friday, from a previous count of 50 after fissures reactivated in Leilani Estates this week.

Fountains of lava continue to erupt from the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii.

Molten rock from two fissures advanced over a street of homes in the Leilani Estates housing development, the observatory said.

"There were eight houses taken on this road in 12 hours", Ikaika Marzo said in a Facebook video as he stood on Kaupuli street and showed a black, glass-like lava field where his cousin's house previously stood.

Firefighters went door-to-door urging some residents of Leilani Estates on Hawaii's Big Island to leave as lava from the Kilauea volcano continued to flow, threatening more homes.

Magma spewed from 100-foot-high (30-meter-high) cinder cones and formed elevated ponds of molten rock that were expected to soon overflow and stream into the next rows of homes - Kahukai Street and Mohala Street. About 2,000 people have fled their homes.

U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist Mike Poland says small ash explosions are coming from the summit intermittently as lava keeps flowing into the ocean.

Geologists say there's no telling when the volcanic activity might end.

A 4.4 magnitude quake at the volcano's summit today prompted County of Hawaii Civil Defense to reassure the island's 200,000 residents that there was no risk of a tsunami.

Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, entered the fourth week of what may be an unprecedented, simultaneous eruption at its summit crater and along a six-mile (9.7-km) string of fissures 25 miles (40 km) down its east flank.
