    The entire rift area is under threat of new earthquakes, fissures, lava flows and eruptions.

    About 10,000 people live in the area.

    Many homes range from $400,000 to $500,000 USD.

    One resident interviewed said it was impossible to get homeowners insurance in that area.

    Lava shooting up to 150 feet in the air . Whole area of Leilani
    estates under immediate evacuation. The land is cheap in that area so many poor people live there. It's going to be a long night in Puna.

    HVO/USGS Volcanic Activity Notice

    Volcano: Kilauea (VNUM #332010)

    Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING
    Previous Volcano Alert Level: WATCH

    Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE

    Issued: Thursday, May 3, 2018, 5:35 PM HST
    Source: Hawaiian Volcano Observatory
    Notice Number:
    Location: N 19 deg 25 min W 155 deg 17 min
    Elevation: 4091 ft (1247 m)
    Area: Hawaii

    Volcanic Activity Summary:
    An eruption has commenced in the Leilani Estates subdivision in the lower East Rift Zone of Kilauea Volcano. Shortly before 5 pm, lava was confirmed at the surface in the eastern end of the subdivision. Hawaii County Civil Defense is on scene and coordinating needed response including evacuation of a portion of the Leilani subdivision.

    Residents of the lower Puna District should remain alert, review individual, family, and business emergency plans, and watch for further information about the status of the volcano. Hawaii County Civil Defense messages may be found at http://www.hawaiicounty.gov/active-alerts/.

    Recent Observations:

    New ground cracks were reported in Leilani Estates late this afternoon. White, hot vapor and blue fume emanated from an area of cracking in the eastern part of the subdivision. Spatter began erupting shortly before 5 pm.

    HVO and the County of Hawaii are on the ground and conducting overflights to further identify characterize activity and identify the direction of flowing lava.

    Hazard Analysis:

    Areas downslope of the erupting vent are at risk of lava inundation. At this time, the general area of the Leilani subdivision appears at greatest risk.

    The opening phases of fissure eruptions are dynamic. Additional vents and new lava outbreaks may occur and at this time it is not possible to say where new vents may occur.


    Remarks: USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists continue to closely monitor the activity. More updates will follow as information becomes available.

    Contacts: askHVO@usgs.gov

    Next Notice: Daily updates on all volcanic activity at Kîlauea are issued each morning and posted on out website:

    I live on the north side of the island , about 70 miles away. So far the wind seems to be carrying ash and fumes away from the island. We have felt quakes here but
    all the real action is on the south end of the island.

    What does it mean to be Lava Zone One or Two?

    It means that your financing and insurance options are more limited. There’s only a few lenders that will loan for a home in Lava Zone One (we know who they are and can direct you to them). As for insurance, there’s one program for Lava Zone One that will cover only $350,000 of replacement value. Or you can go to Lloyd’s of London who will insure anything, including houses in lava zone one (or your big toe, if you want them to).

    For Lava Zone Two, there’s a lot more options and for Zones Three and up, your choices are pretty much unlimited.

    https://alohacoastrealty.com/lava-zones/

    What happens if lava covers my house and land?

    If it covers your house, the house burns up. The land is still yours and you can rebuild. Wait a while for the lava to harden, though.

    It’s always a good idea, just in case, to make an offering to Pele (the goddess of the volcano) whenever you visit Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. It’s said that she likes red flowers and gin (or maybe that’s the park staff).

    However, don’t pick flowers of the Ohia Lehua tree. Its a long story and a wonderful Hawaiian legend but suffice it to say that the flowers of that tree are very sacred to Pele and you must not pick them unless you know all the proper chants and meles and how to perform them.

    Which subdivisions are in each lava hazard zone?

    Lava Zone 1

    Leilani Estates
    Kapoho (parts of it, not all — call for details)

    HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
    U.S. Geological Survey
    Thursday, May 3, 2018, 10:13 PM HST (Friday, May 4, 2018, 08:13 UTC)

    KILAUEA VOLCANO (VNUM #332010)
    19°25'16" N 155°17'13" W, Summit Elevation 4091 ft (1247 m)
    Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING
    Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE

    The eruption in the Leilani Estates subdivision in the lower East Rift Zone of Kîlauea Volcano that began in late afternoon ended by about 6:30 p.m. HST. Lava spatter and gas bursts erupted from the fissure for about two hours, and lava spread a short distance from the fissure, less than about 10 m (33 ft).

    At this time, the fissure is not erupting lava and no other fissures have erupted.

    HVO geologists are working near the fissure overnight to track additional activity that may occur, and other scientists are closely tracking the volcano's overall activity.

    Recent Observations

    Geologists reported this evening that the presence of sulfur gas is quite noticeable around the fissure, typical of active and recently active fissures. The concentration of sulfur dioxide gas is high within tens of meters (yards) of the fissure.

    Lava flows did not advance more than about 10 m (33 ft) from the fissure. The flows are no longer active.

    At this time, no other fissures have erupted from along the rift zone.

    Tiltmeters at Kîlauea's summit continue to record deflationary tilt and the lava lake level has dropped about 37 m (121 ft) in the past 24 hours.

    Seismic activity has not changed significantly during the day or since the brief fissure eruption.

    Hazard Analysis

    The opening phases of fissure eruptions are dynamic and uncertain. Additional erupting fissures and new lava outbreaks may occur. It is not possible at this time to say when and where new vents may occur.

    Areas downslope of an erupting fissure or vent are at risk of lava inundation. At this time, the general area of the Leilani subdivision appears at greatest risk.

    See the Hawaii County Civil Defense messages and alerts for additional information (http://www.hawaiicounty.gov/active-alerts).

    If you have any local links I'd love it as I have old friends who live in Leilani and many more in other areas in Puna.

    I know it is customary to throw flowers and chant at the volcano. It does not seem to be working. I can't help but wonder if it may require more? Maybe a liberal federal judge should offer his or her services for the good of all. There seems to be a surplus of them in the great State of Hawaii.

    Mahalos Lei and Issy for your boots on the ground reports!

    I always felt nervous whenever I was on the Big Island although beautiful, I'll just stay at my home in Kapa'a. Lol!

    Kauai is pretty much a no lava island.

    My only real concern is that everyone get their pets and animals to safety.

    I think about the people who are off island for vacation etc. and people fleeing and forgetting the pets that are in the backyards etc.

    I'm hoping that the animal rescue groups take it upon themselves to fan out and check out all the front and backyards for dogs who are tied up and left there while the people evac.

    Knowing how some of the people on Kauai are about pet responsibility, I really worry. V

    New Kilauea eruption triggers structure fire as hundreds evacuate area

    By HNN Staff

    PUNA, BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) -
    Just hours after residents in Puna's Leilani Estates subdivision fled with little more than the clothes on their backs Thursday night after an eruption in Kilauea's east rift zone, new eruptions early Friday sent lava soaring more than 100 feet into the air.

    The Hawaii County Civil Defense confirmed around 6:40 a.m. that a third eruption on Kaupili Street resulted in a structure fire.

    The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory also said that active volcanic vents were erupting on Makamae and Mohala streets. The Hawaii County Civil Defense said all Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens subdivision residents are required to evacuate immediately.

    Hawaii County fire officials are also warning of extremely high levels of dangerous sulfur dioxide gas in the evacuation areas. Those with respiratory issues should leave the area immediately, they say.

    At least a dozen small earthquakes rattled the region since midnight, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    Resident Ikaika Marzo said he could feel the quakes shake the area in the early morning hours and saw the eruption around 1:30 a.m.

    The two new eruptions happened less than a day after another eruption created a fissure in the community, spewing lava into the air as high as utility poles, covering roads and nearing several homes.

    Two emergency shelters have been opened for evacuees — one at Pahoa Community and the Keaau Community centers — and a number of families had hunkered down at the facilities for the night.

    Fire officials warn they've detected extremely high levels of dangerous sulfur dioxide in Leilani Estates and are reiterating this message: Get out of the community — if you haven't already — and stay out until the threat has passed.

    HVO said the first eruption that started in late afternoon Thursday ended about 6:30 p.m., after creating a fissure that sent lava soaring as high as 125 feet into the air. About 10:30 p.m., geologists confirmed the fissure (whose length was not immediately clear) was no longer erupting.

    They stressed, however, that new lava outbreaks remain a possibility.

    "The opening phases of fissure eruptions are dynamic and uncertain. It is not possible at this time to say when and where new vents may occur," the observatory said, in its latest update. "Areas downslope of an erupting fissure or vent are at risk of lava inundation. At this time, the general area of the Leilani subdivision appears at greatest risk."

    Within hours of the eruption Thursday, Gov. David Ige had activated the Hawaii National Guard and issued an emergency disaster proclamation. FEMA is also mobilizing resources.

    In an interview with Hawaii News Now, Ige urged evacuees to "stay calm" and continue to stay tuned to emergency alerts.

    Those residents fled their homes Thursday evening with few belongings — just what they could collect in the minutes they had to leave, as officers went door-to-door to ensure everyone got out. One resident said he grabbed his father's ashes as he ran out the door.

    "My family is safe, the rest of the stuff can be replaced," another resident said. "When I bought here 14 years, I knew that this day would eventually come. But the reality is sinking in now."

    Some residents seemed in disbelief at what they were seeing in their own backyards. In social media posts, they documented lava sputtering up from cracks in the roadway and then angrily boiling up higher and higher.

    Ikaika Marzo said he could see fountains of lava in the community topping 100 feet.

    He was among the first people in Leilani Estates to spot the active lava. And as soon as he did, he started notifying anyone he could find.

    "When we drove on that road, we heard a noise in the forest and it was like a little thump," he said. "Next thing, like three to five seconds after that, we smelled sulfur. After that, that's when there was tons of sulfur. Then we saw some lava popping out."

    The lava outbreak was first reported about 4:30 p.m., some six hours after a 5.0-magnitude earthquake shook the Big Island Thursday morning. That quake came after hundreds of small tremors rattled the island since last week.

    The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the larger quake Thursday caused rockfalls and possibly an additional collapse into the Puu O'o crater, not no immediate eruption. The plume dissipated as it drifted southwest, dropping ash on some nearby communities.

    The quake happened around 10:30 a.m., and was centered in the south flank of Kilauea volcano at a depth of 6.9 kilometers, the USGS said. It was originally reported as a 4.6-magnitude tremor, but its strength was later increased.

    Residents from Puna to Hilo said they felt the temblor, the biggest in recent days to hit Hawaii Island, which has been rattled with hundreds of small earthquakes since last week. The larger quake was followed up by several smaller tremors ranging in magnitude from 2.5 to 2.8.

    Earlier Thursday, seismic activity had flagged — a good sign — but officials continued to stress that residents along Kilauea's east rift zone should continue to prepare for a possible eruption.

    The first signs of trouble in Leilani Estates came about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, when residents reported plumes of smoke spewing from cracks in the road.

    On Wednesday, cracks were also reported on the road in Leilani Estates, but officials reported they did not pose a lava threat.

    Still, the cracks added to residents' anxieties as the quakes didn't let up.

    "Last night, we started having them ... about five a minute. It was like that just about all night long," said Chris Burmeister, who lives in Leilani Estates. "It'll rumble for a little bit. Rumble for a little bit. And then every now and then, you'll get just a heavy jolt."

    According to the U.S. Geological Survey, there were nearly 70 earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or stronger from Tuesday to Wednesday.

    Amid the quakes, scientists installed additional GPS monitoring equipment and deployed crews to put in even more monitoring tools.

    Before Thursday's eruption, HVO research geophysicist Jim Kauahikaua said the seismic activity seen in recent days is similar to what happened before an eruption of Kilauea in February 1955. During that eruption, at least 24 separate volcanic vents opened up and lava covered about 3,900 acres.

    Kauahikaua said coastal communities from Kalapana to Kapoho were evacuated and "sections of every public road to the coastline were buried by lava" before the eruption abruptly stopped in May 1955.

    On Wednesday, amid fears of an eruption, Hawaii County has closed the Kalapana lava viewing area. The area can draw 500 to more than 2,000 visitors, depending on the level of volcanic activity.

    Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has also closed off access to about 15,688 acres, which run from the Puu O'o vent to the ocean. The closure includes access to the gravel emergency access road from the eastern gate near Kalapana to the western gate at the end of Chain of Crater Road.

    The Hawaiian Electric Company also confirmed Thursday that the Puna Geothermal plant was shut down, and that there would not be any rolling blackouts or power outages.

    The last time lava threatened Puna was in 2014, when a flow closed roads for weeks in Pahoa, forced evacuations and claimed several structures, including one home.

    Activity had stopped late last night but now it is increasing.

    That is not a good sign at all.

    The whole situation can go exponential at a moments notice with little or no ability by the authorities to predict when or where the next eruptions will occur.

    I heard from my cousin. They are in harms way. As she said, "It's all in God's hands now". I'm praying for everyone over there.

    ETA she just texted me again and said it looks like they could lose their land and everything they have.
    At peace in the arms of Jesus. RIP my love until we meet again.

    Fissures now on 3 streets in Leilani estates. Many people are coming into the area with trucks to help evacuate people. Others have volunteered to take animals in need of rescue...dogs, cats, sheep , cattle, chickens etc. The north end of the island , the Hamakua area, has lots of farm land for displaced animals. People are coming together to help
    those in need. Several centers are open for people needing shelter.

    On another note, years ago I joined this forum because it was a great prepping forum.
    The hate of politics has seemed to take over for the last 10 years. When my neighbor is in need I don't intend to ask his politics before I offer a helping hand.

    Map of Leilani estates in case anyone wants to check where the eruptions are. My dear friends live on Malama street. They're probably evacuating. They have 10 acres and farm.

    One of my worst fears and why I told my husband years ago that I wouldn't be going over to the Big Island.

    You never know when or where it's going to happen on that island.

    So glad my husband's cousin is going home this monday to Atlanta. Even though kauai is father away, it's still too close. V
