How much of Hawaii is affected by volcano eruptions?

Hawaii County has ordered about 2,000 people to evacuate from Leilani Estates and surrounding neighborhoods since the eruption began on May 3.

The nearby Gemini Observatory in Hilo, Hawaii, captured a time-lapse glimpse at Kilauea from Monday night into Tuesday morning as the light from the volcano and its almost two-dozen fissures beamed through the clouds.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) has warned the volcano's danger zone runs several kilometres along the coast and forms a "curving line of volcanoes" with Mauna Kea and Kohala.

Deadly lava is tearing through Hawaii as the Kilauea volcano's violent eruption continues — here are the latest images

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which encompasses the Kilauea volcano, is one of the biggest attractions on the Big Island for cruisers. And how does predicting volcanic eruptions compare to quake prediction and weather forecasting?

As those of us across the country look at images of the flowing lava and the hazardous laze, it's easy to forget the Big Island is - well, a big island, about 4,000 square miles.

Around 40 homes and structures have been destroyed by lava flow in Puna. Laze, a word combination of lava and haze, contains hydrochloric acid steam along with volcanic glass particles.

Amtrak and most local commuter railroads in the NY metropolitan area said their services were back to normal on Wednesday. Pictures posted on social media showed concourses at Grand Central Terminal jammed with stranded passengers.

Methane gas is produced as a byproduct when hot lava buried plants and shrubs, which can then seep into cracks and create blue flames when it ignites, according to USGS.

It's just the latest hazard from a weeks-old eruption that has so far generated earthquakes and featured gushing molten rock, giant ash plumes and sulfur dioxide. "I didn't care if they cut my leg off down there or not", Clinton said.

The volcano erupted at least twice last weekend, with a cloud of ash reaching up to 10,000 high at one point. One man was seriously injured after being hit by a flying piece of lava. The remarkable footage was taken May 22 in the vicinity of the Puna Geothermal Venture, a plant that brings steam to the surface by way of several underground wells.

"It was the most forceful impact I've ever had on my body in my life", Clinton told a crowd of reporters from his hospital bed on Tuesday.

No deaths have been reported.
