Hawaii Residents Trapped As Volcanic Eruption Intensifies, First Major Injury Reported After "Lava Bomb"

More residents of Hawaii's Big Island have been told to evacuate as fast moving lava threatens homes and businesses after a new, explosive eruption took place at Kilauea's summit crater Saturday as well as the emergence of fresh, faster flowing lava throughout the region. Some 22 fissures have opened up in the lower Puna district since the eruptions began over two weeks ago, claiming at least 44 structures in the affluent Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens subdivisions.

Residents across the Ka'u region have been advised to prepare for "rapid changes in air quality" due to the potential for ashfall or increased levels of sulfur dioxide.
