Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano destroyed 9 homes

Although no significant lava flows have yet formed, additional outbreaks of lava, which can reach temperatures of about 1,150 degrees Celsius, were expected, the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency said.

It is a scene dramatic - and unsafe - as a menacing new lava flow from the Kilauea volcano was on a collision course with homes in the Leilani neighborhood of Hawaii's Big Island.

That brings the total of fissures to 10 since the eruption began late Thursday afternoon, but a scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey says one of those vents has gone dormant.

Lava from the Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii's Big Island has spread into parts of the Leilani Estates community through several fissures that have developed the last few days.

At Leilani Estates, where lava was pushing through cracks in the earth, some residents still wanted to get home.

Scientists and volcanologists are now trying to determine the movement of the magma under the volcano.

A new fissure erupts Saturday in Leilani Estates in Pahoa, Hawaii.

The lava lake at the summit has risen to an all-time high level: At its peak it spilled onto the floor of the crater, covering two-thirds of it with fresh lava. He monitored remote cameras set up in his home and said his home was still intact.

Authorities warned that the air quality remained troublesome and that the roads were still under very unstable conditions, and residents could be required to leave the area if conditions became more hazardous. He later saw a video on social media showing lava splashing and bubbling a few feet from his home, he told CNN affiliate KITV.

Eruptions of lava fountains continued throughout the night.

Hawaii Electric Light said the jolt knocked out power to about 14,400 customers, but electricity was restored about two hours later.

When the larger quake followed, he said he felt strong shaking in Hilo, the island's largest city that is roughly 45 minutes from the rural Puna area.

Officials at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, scene of a mandatory evacuation order Friday, were assessing roads and trails on Sunday as they weighed whether to reopen.

Hundreds of people have evacuated from Leilani Estates, a community of about 1,700 people, and Lanipuna Gardens.

"Those occur when lava flows encounter vegetated areas and vegetation burns and releases methane gas", Stovall said.

And volcanoes, unlike many other natural hazards, usually give clues to what is coming.

Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, has been in constant eruption for 35 years.

"You have to ask Pele", Steve Clapper said when asked whether he had any idea when he'd return to his Leilani Estates home.

Some officials said that the noxious fumes from the fissures was likely the biggest threat to public health, even as the island continues to be covered in lava.

The number of homes destroyed by lava bursting out of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has climbed to five.
