Hawaii volcano EXPLOSION - fears major eruption on its way

The entire north portion of Mount Kilauea's Overlook crater

A wide area could be potentially impacted by the thermal region outlined by the USGS as a high danger zone, according to Maiclaire Bolton-Smith, senior leader of research and content strategy for Irvine, Calif. -based catastrophe modeler CoreLogic.

The U.S. Geological Survey said Wednesday the risk will rise if the lava drops below the groundwater level beneath the summit's caldera or craterlike basin. That's because an influx of water inside could cause steam-driven explosions.

Below the summit, at least 15 fissures have split the ground open, sending lava shooting into the air in a residential neighbourhood and destroying dozens of homes.

Kilauea, the US state's most active volcano, erupted on Thursday, and lava flows from fissures on its eastern flank have destroyed at least 36 homes and other buildings and caused the evacuation of about 2,000 residents.

Severe ground cracks associated with fissure 14 are seen in Leilani Estates this morning. The resident and a friend took the suspect to police officers who arrested him.

Officers found a number of people still at their residences but there were no sign of holdouts later, said Talmadge Magno, the administrator for Hawaii County Civil Defense.

As a kind gesture, some are even offering accommodation to underprivileged students who are forced to travel to different states. Since the students have been left in a fix, Twitter users chose to pool in to help underprivileged students.

The risk of explosions is the latest possibility in a chain of events that began April 30 with the collapse of a lava-filled crater 12 miles east of the summit.

Residents were being allowed to check on their properties from 7 a.m.to 6 p.m. each day but must be prepared to leave at a moment's notice, the Hawaii County Civil Defence Agency says. Gov. David Ige this afternoon issued an emergency proclamation to address concerns related to the geothermal energy plant, including creating a team to review and assess the existing PGV Emergency Response Plan and "develop a specific mission strategy deemed appropriate to mitigate potential impacts from lava".

Puna Geothermal Venture could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

It would be "very, very hazardous" if a volcanic vent were to open under the facility where the fuel is stored, the governor said.

Officials expect to finish removing the gas by Thursday.

Hawaii's insurance commissioner says all insured homes destroyed or damaged in the lava flow into a Hawaii neighborhood are covered.

From rising ash columns to the emission of risky gases, Hawaii residents fear the destructive force of the Kilauea volcano on the Big Island.

Those forces would emit "ballistic projectiles" - as small as pebbles or weighing up to several tons.

A summit explosion could also release ash, steam and sulfur dioxide emissions.

There are no inhabited areas within half a mile of Kilauea's summit; the primary risk would be to visitors entering the area, which is home to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The volcano began spewing lava at around 9pm last Thursday night (local time), forcing hundreds of residents on Hawaii's Big Island to evacuate.

Police went door-to-door in Hawaii to roust residents near two new volcanic vents emitting unsafe gases in areas where lava has poured into streets and backyards for the past week.
