Hawaii volcano eruption: Satellite images show DEVASTATING impact of Mount Kilauea

The fissure 8 flow has created a lava delta approximately 190 acres in size, filling Kapoho Bay and shallow reefs along the nearby coastline.

Scientists working with the US Geological Survey said that lava flow in Hawaii is still active and there's no way out find out when the eruption will end.

Lava from the eighth fissure that opened early last month was fountaining up to 220 feet (67 meters) high.

The latest estimate of property losses from Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, far surpasses the 215 structures consumed by lava during an earlier eruption cycle that began in 1983 and continued almost nonstop over three decades.

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.

Citing national security concerns, Trump leveled a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% duty on aluminum last month. The G7 are the United States, Canada, Japan, Britain, Germany, France and Italy.

Hawaii Governor David Ige has signed a memorandum of understanding furnishing millions of dollars in state disaster relief to the island. The new land has extended almost a mile out from the original shoreline and only a few buildings remain near the water. This activity continues to feed the lava channel flowing northeast before turning westward toward Kapoho where it transforms in a very broad lava flow that by now nearly entirely covered Kapoho and Vacationland and filled up Kapoho Bay.

Kim told reporters in Hilo on Thursday the total includes about 320 homes in the coastal community of Kapoho. "Don't forget the farmers, don't forget the ranchers, don't forget all the employees for them".

Hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and thousands of people displaced.

Lava could be seen bubbling out of the volcano's valve and into a red-hot river flowing into the Pacific Ocean in helicopter video taken on Wednesday. A plume of toxic volcanic lava haze, called laze, stretched for miles.

In addition to destroying homes and other structures, lava flows have knocked out telephone and power lines, causing widespread communication outages, and forced the shutdown of a geothermal energy plant that normally provides about a quarter of the island's electricity.
