Hawaii volcano eruption: Kilauea 1,000ft fissure blasts ‘LAVA BOMBS’ into air

The 1,000ft-long (300 meters) crack in the earth appeared suddenly on Sunday morning and started pouring red-hot magma and thick smoke from both ends.

Officials have warned of a potential imminent explosion at the volcano’s summit which could scatter hot ash and debris for miles around.

Residents living close to the massive gouge have described a near-constant roar as the molten rock churns and ejects 100-pound globs of lava up to 100ft into the air.

Shocking pictures taken from a helicopter captured the vivd orange of the oozing molten rock and pitch black of the seared ground against the lush green of the Big Island landscape.
