  • More Small Blasts from Hawaii Volcano

It's covered more than 5,000 acres and is up to 20 feet deep in some places. "A lot of, 'What now?'" said Big Island Mayor Harry Kim, who spoke at a news conference Monday.

The volcanic gas and ash emission could affect air quality across the central and southern half of Big Island, Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency said.

The lava is also flowing into the ocean, where it has created about 200 acres of new land, while also releasing unsafe gas plumes and causing explosions as the molten rock hits the cold water. The fissure's plumes of lava are feeding a fast-moving channel that is flooding into the sea at Kapoho Bay-an area that was recently an oceanside resort. "It's going to take a whole community effort".

On Sunday, another explosion spewed ash from the volcano, creating a driving hazard for roads on parts of the Big Island.

It's possible a new fissure will open or vigorous flows could emerge from vents that have been inactive.

In the meantime, fewer workers are needed to staff a 24-hour operations center and officials are reducing checkpoints, Magno said.

"Just a few days ago Kapoho Bay was a attractive vacation destination, filled with vacation homes, lovely beaches and clear water", Forbes wrote last week. A 5.3-magnitude natural disaster accompanied the latest eruption. There were two small blasts Monday, including one after a magnitude-5.4 natural disaster, scientists said.

Scientists warn against venturing too close to lava hitting water, saying it could expose people to dangers from flying debris.

The ongoing lava flows have forced thousands of people from their homes, although many have been allowed to return on a temporary basis, particularly in the Leilani Estates area.
