Kilauea Maps, Videos, Show Lava Entering the Ocean

Kilauea is the youngest and most active Hawaiian shield volcano, located on the southern part of the Island of Hawai'i, known as Big Island.

One of the fissures in the volcano shot rock 160 feet (49 meters) up on Tuesday, slightly lower than the 180 feet (55 meters) it reached from Saturday night into Sunday, the USGS said. 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.

"We've pretty much thrown everything at this event" since a series of lava fissures began emerging from cracks in neighborhood last month, Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency Administrator Talmadge Magno said Monday.

The lava is "enough to cover Manhattan 6.5 feet deep" and fill 11.3 million average dump trucks, it said. The fissure's plumes of lava are feeding a fast-moving channel that is flooding into the sea at Kapoho Bay-an area that was recently an oceanside resort. Residents were warned about minor ash fall as a result of the explosions, but the USGS called the explosions "typical of past events".

Lava from the Kilauea volcano continues to erupt from a fissure and forms a river of lava flowing down to Kapoho.

USA judge clears AT&T merger with Time Warner
Waiting in the wings are potential big-billions deals involving 21st Century Fox and Disney, Verizon and CBS, T-Mobile and Sprint. In after-market trading following the ruling , shares of Time Warner rose almost 5 percent and AT&T shares fell 1.6 percent.

The federal agency also reported a new 5.3 magnitude quake at 02:52 pm BST that had Kilauea unleash yet another plume of ash and smoke from its summit.

Those figures underscore the incredible volume of lava that continues to shoot from fissure no. 8 in Leilani Estates, ground zero for the eruptions that started 40 days ago.

The lava is also creating laze - lava haze - a deadly mix of hydrochloric acid fumes, steam and tiny specks of volcanic glass, created when lava hits the ocean. "FEMA doesn't have a magic wand to make it not happen".

Thousands of residents have fled their homes and at least 600 homes have been destroyed.
