New fissures after volcano eruptions may bring more threat

Video shared with Reuters showed huge flames burning from the fissures, appearing before mass amounts of lava deposits in residential Leilani Estates in Puna district.

U.S. Geological Survey said “a large explosion in Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano on Wednesday may mark the beginning of more violent, explosive eruptions that could spray rocks for miles (kilometres) and dust nearby towns in volcanic ash and smog.”

The USGS warned that more violent eruptions at the crater could begin mid-May.

Fourteen fissures have opened since Kilauea’s vents started spraying fountains of lava up to 300 feet (90 meters) into the air on last Thursday and about 104 acres (42 hectares) of land have been covered with lava.
