Kilauea Volcano's Lava Seen from Space Glowing at Night

Infrared images reveal damage on Hawaii's Big Island

The continuous flow of lava and the fissures that are erupting from the Kilauea volcano were captured in the latest aerial shots by the Hawaii Army National Guard. The civil defense agency had ordered more residents of the vulnerable Leilani Estates area to leave because of the lava.

In addition, two of the wells at the geothermal plant were overtaken by lava, but there were no emissions of hydrogen sulfide. New aerial video shot Monday morning also showed lava setting fire to or covering several homes. Lava fountains in the lower east rift zone are flowing up to 150 feet high, according to the USGS.

"Additional ground cracking and outbreaks of lava in the area of the active fissures are possible".

Volcanic smog, or air pollution, is created by vapor, carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide gas released from Kilauea.

A series of summit explosions on Saturday from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano spewed ash up to 3,300 meters (nearly 11,000 feet), dusting communities to the southwest, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said.

Steve Brantley, of the U.S. Geological Survey, said the flow was at least 1 1/2 miles long.

Under the current circumstances nothing is expected to change for the better for Iran. The answer was not long in coming.

Frequent explosive eruptions at the summit of Kilauea have continued to plague Hawaii residents.

"Lava flow from Fissures 7 and 21 crossed into PGV property overnight and has now covered one well that was successfully plugged".

The Hawaii Civil Defense Agency said all the wells remained "stable and secure" in a statement released Sunday night. Officials said there was no release of any risky hydrogen sulfide gas after lava crept over the plugged wells.

"Several residents were evacuated in advance of the risky and fast-moving flows", the HVO said.

The eruption of Kilauea, which began on May 3rd, has so far destroyed 82 homes and fast moving lava is continuing to force evacuations.
