Activity continues with regularly changing erupting vents and flows

Hawaii Kilauea volcano erupts again spews ash up to 12,000 feet

About two dozen Hawaii Volcanoes National Park staffers, including personnel that the U.S. Geological Survey sent to Hawaii to respond to the eruption, are now working out of UH-Hilo.

A river of lava flows across the Big Island. There was concern the lava would release hydrogen sulfide or other toxic gases.

Firefighters went door-to-door asking residents of Leilani Estates on the island to leave as lava from the volcano continued to flow, threatening more homes, reported CNN. The lava has reportedly destroyed at least 82 structures and displaced thousands of people.

A section of a key rural highway closed after a lava flow came within about 100 yards (90 metres), according to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

The USGS replied back, "Erm...we're going to have to say no, that's not safe".

Contingency plans have been made for a possible helicopter evacuation of up to 1,000 residents in a coastal area south of the fissures should their last exit route be blocked by lava or become unsafe due to gaping cracks, officials said.

LSU softball wins Game 1 of Super Regional over Florida State
Will be updatedThe NCAA has granted Florida State forward Phil Cofer's another year of eligibility. The Corvallis Regional was the final region to be unveiled on the selection show.

The USGS were fairly straightforward in their answers and told Mr Furr "that's not safe", but they also gave a fascinating insight into what may happen if he had tried to toast his candies.

Firefighters also had to lead a man from his home near Kilauea late on Sunday after he was trapped by fast-moving lava, Hawaii News Now reported. Those vents emit high levels of sulfur dioxide that carries health risks.

So far, the eruptions have been responsible for one injury, but no deaths.

"Lava entering the ocean causes a chemical reaction and can result in small explosions, sending tiny particles of hydrochloric acid and volcanic glass in the air", added Jessica Johnson, a geophysicist at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom.

But, keep those experiments to the classroom, not an active lava field.
