Hawaii - Kilauea Destroys Hundreds of Homes in Latest Eruption

There's breaking news coming out of Hawaii, where hundreds of homes have been reportedly destroyed as a result of the Kilauea Volcano eruption.

The endless horrors on-the-ground have yet to end, with an explosion from within the Kilauea Volcano on early Tuesday sending ash at least mile into the sky, causing a major earthquake that registered a stunning 5.5 magnitude on the Richter scale, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Countless thousands of residents have evacuated over recent weeks, with lava continuing to pour from additional fissures that have appeared with each passing day.

Some of the video footage of the Volcanic eruptions coming out of Hawaii is both extraordinarily beautiful, and extremely terrifying for those within the proximity of the monumental dangers which are now posed to human and animal life.

Lava around Kilauea has reportedly now shifted into a dangerous fast-moving stream, especially in the Leilani Estates area, where properties have been ravaged by the molten earth.

Local media reports that evacuees are flooding into the safe havens of Puʻuhonua o Puna, where they can access both sleeping cots and hot meals to escape the disaster.

Nearly 10,000 earthquakes have occurred since just May 4th, with close to 150 homes having been fully destroyed, several thousand others damaged, 7.7 miles completely covered by lava and a fountain of lava reaching 250 feet.

The largest of those earthquakes registered at a 6.9 magnitude on the Richter scale back on May 4th, but the unpredictable nature of what's occurring right now has even geologists and seismological researchers scratching their heads, with over 1,000 more earthquakes in May than the average for the already-prevalent quake-affected region.

The tallest of the multiple ash plumes coming from the summit of Kilauea volcano was reportedly 30,000 feet above sea level, according to the USGS.

The stunning beauty of this natural disaster may be attractive to witness on television and imagery, but for those affected by the volcano, it's become a nightmare.
