Big Island’s Kilauea volcano began erupting on May 3, 2018, blasting scorching hot lava across the so-called Lower East Rift Zone.

Over the course of the month channels of lava wreaked havoc across the island as the molten rock pushed north and east from Leilani to Kapoho.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) the hot lava from the Hawaii volcano has covered a total area of 9.1 square miles.

The volcano still producing a large channelised flow which was entering the ocean at Kapoho and producing large plumes of laze – a toxic and corrosive cocktail of superheated seawater laced with hydrochloric acid and fine volcanic particles that irritate the skin, eyes, and lungs and can cause serious burns.

Noxious gas emissions from the fissure eruption and at the ocean entry point near Kapaho also continue to be very high.

A Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) spokesman said: “The ocean entry remains a hazardous area.

“Venturing too close to an ocean entry on land or the ocean exposes you to flying debris from sudden explosive interaction between lava and water.

“Also, the lava delta is unstable because it is built on unconsolidated lava fragments and sand.

“This loose material can easily be eroded away by surf, causing the new land to become unsupported and slide into the sea.”
