Small explosions, seismic activity continues from Hawaii's Kilauea

Hawaii volcano latest

There is "a lot of desperation out there. Don't forget the farmers, don't forget the ranchers, don't forget all the employees for them", Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim said.

"There is no magic wand for this event", said Robert Fenton, a FEMA administrator. He said nonprofit organizations are now offering the bulk of resources and assistance to evacuees, and he encouraged people who have insurance to use it. "It's going to take a whole community effort".

Approximately eight square miles of Hawaii's Big Island has been covered by lava since this period of activity began on May 3. "Some aspects of it can kind of start to scale down as the volcano somewhat runs into a stable situation".

"The ocean entry is a hazardous area".

Officials are transitioning to recovery efforts, with help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is starting to do damage assessments, Magno said.

"This is the hottest lava we've seen during this eruption", Wendy Stovall, a scientist with USGS, on Hawaii News Now said. Gas emissions from the vent have doubled. Magno says additional workers can be called in if conditions change. Last week, lava from the fissures filled Kapoho Bay. Only residents are allowed there.

Many people whose homes have been destroyed don't have insurance, and FEMA officials are working with local authorities to get disaster assistance to those who qualify.

Also Saturday, there was an explosive eruption of rock and ash at Kilauea's summit at 4:50 a.m. that produced a plume expected to possibly blow to the southwest toward Wood Valley, Pahala and Ocean View.

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area Wednesday with the force of a 5.4 magnitude quake and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level.
