Panic as new lava eruption threatens to block the LAST escape route from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano

Thousands more people may have to evacuate after lava flowing from giant rips in the earth on the flank of Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano threatened the last available escape routes.

One fissure opened up Tuesday and two others on Monday on Hawaii's Big Island, raising the possibility that officials might have to order further mass evacuations.

Lava from a huge new fissure tore through farmland towards a coastal dirt road that is one of the last exit routes for some 2,000 residents in the southeast area of Hawaii's Big Island.
