HAWAII’S Kilauea volcano has been erupting for almost a month, and there has been little evidence of exactly when it will stop. Scientists have just admitted there is no way for them to tell exactly when it will end.

Kilauea volcano’s rivers of lava have so far created a mile of new land off the coast of Hawaii.

The fast moving lava flow created a channel running from the volcano into the sea, destroying hundreds of homes in its path.

And the volcano has been constantly active with earthquakes.

The eruption is being hailed the most destructive in US history since the 1980 Mount St Helens blast which killed more than 50 people.

When will the eruption end?

Scientists said it is impossible to estimate exactly when the volcano will stop erupting.

Officials from the US Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed the flow is still active, and there is no way of knowing if other vents will open up.

The Kilauea volcano is one of the most active on the planet, as a similar eruption in 1990 also buried a number of homes under lava.

Experts will use GPS systems and a tilt measure to see if the ground is still moving, while more pressure and earthquakes will mean more lava is released.
