  • New coastline emerges as Kilauea pumps more lava to the sea

Kilauea, the most active of Hawaii's five volcanoes, is feared to be on the brink of another major eruption after being rattled by more than 500 earthquakes over the weekend.

Scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey say they don't know when the volcanic activity will stop.

The eruptions began early last month and is believed to be the volcano's most destructive episode in modern history.

County civil defense officials had a day earlier put the confirmed number of homes destroyed during the past month at 130, all of them in and around the Leilani Estates community, where lava-spouting fissures opened up on the volcano's eastern flank on May 3.

As the fiery eruption of Kilauea continues to force evacuations on the Big Island of Hawaii, authorities are warning about other phenomena that could harm those in the area.

The newspaper also said that Watkins said that Wolfe was not a source of classified information for her during their relationship. Prosecutors say Wolfe lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in December 2017 about contacts he had with three reporters.

The lava, which has covered more than 5,000 acres (2023.47 hectares) in this latest eruption is not only expansive, but very thick.

David Ige signed a memo to free up $12 million in immediate disaster relief to pay for police, fire, public works and civil defense personnel.

"Lava continues to enter the ocean along a broad front in Kapoho Bay and the Vacationland area and it continues to creep north of what remains of Kapoho Beach Lots", USGS geologist Janet Babb told Associated Press.

Roughly a mile of new land formed after lava from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano spilled into a nearby bay has some wondering who the new terrain belongs to. "I'm talking about 600 families". The lake was hundreds of feet deep in some places. Meanwhile, a 5.6-magnitude quake recently struck the summit of the volcano, sending more ash and rock thousands of feet into the sky.

It has forced the shutdown of a geothermal energy plant that normally provides about a quarter of the island's electricity.
