People airlifted away from relentless lava flow in Hawaii

In theory, bombing a channel can slow the lava flow down and reduce the damage inflicted on cities because the deadly liquid moves fastest when contained in a channel or a lava tube, while lava that flows in a wider space is much slower and cools faster.

The USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says the explosion was associated with a Magnitude 5.5 natural disaster. The strongest natural disaster measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale resulted in the volcano blowing out an ash plume that reached up to 8,000 feet, according to Hawaii County Civil Defense.

"Unlike lava, which you can see coming and avoid, we cannot see or predict earthquakes, nor can we foresee a summit explosion, but both threats continue", park Superintendent Cindy Orlando said. "They are not only putting themselves into potentially life-threatening situations, but we can't completely lock gates or erect impassable barricades in areas where people have only one way out - these are the routes loiterers are using to gain up-close access". Most earthquakes associated with the ongoing Kilauea Volcano eruption are in the magnitude 2-3 range.

Lava from Kilauea has continued to wreak havoc.

Just last month Neymar admitted that he was anxious about the prospect of injury derailing another World Cup campaign. Tite said there was no doubt that Neymar gives them something extra but said that needed to be kept in perspective.

The eruption has cut power, cell reception and county water in the area, CNN reported.

About a dozen people remain in the area, but it is not clear whether they are in neighborhoods that are immediately threatened by lava, officials said. Some said they were staying because they had nowhere else to go, officials said.

Fissure 8 remains the most active, the USGS says, sending "persistent fountains" of lava as high as 260 feet into the air.

"There's a lot of destruction", Talmadge Magno, Hawaii County Civil Defense administrator, told CBS affiliate KGMB-TV.

Although in this case it doesn't depend on me. "I have just signed a long contract with Tottenham , and am happy here. And at this club, you must know this: I do not want to start a season and have a bad time.

Lava emerges from the ground after Kilauea Volcano erupted, on Hawaii's Big Island May 3, 2018, in this still image taken from video obtained from social media. The lava from the Kilauea volcano has covered an area of 9 square kilometres - four times as big as New York's Central Park, according to USGS.

Thousands of residents have been evacuated from the area and lava spewing from the volcano's fissures have destroyed more than 100 structures since the first eruption a month ago.

Kilauea, standing at 4,091 ft (1,247 metres) tall, has now been erupting for 34 days in a row, the longest since 1955.
