New volcanic eruptions which created rivers of lava spilling into streets in combination with several major earthquakes (a 6.9 magnitude quake just south-east of the volcano was recorded) have prompted further evacuations on Hawaii's Big Island as the natural disaster destroyed several homes. Fissures could be seen on at least three streets already and the Civil Defense Agency therefore decided to broaden the evacuation area.

The USGS said that the "vigorous lava spattering" was a clear sign of further outbreaks in the area coming.

Mr Janet Snyder, a spokeswoman for the Hawaiian government claimed that the "elevated levels" of sulphur dioxide were dangerous for anyone wanting to return to their home to check on possible damage.

"It is quite toxic and in fact, even our first responders find it too hazardous at this time to go back into the sub-divisions without heavy, protective equipment," Ms Snyder stated.

Ms Maija Stenback, who was amongst those evacuated, stated: “Within about half an hour of the eruption, it was on social media, so me and my daughter went down to look at it. You could hear and feel the eruption a good half a mile away, and the closer you got, the more you could feel it.”

“It was like when someone plays the bass really heavy, and you can feel the bass - you could really feel the power and the lava - the colour was unbelievable, and the sound was unbelievable.”

“It sounds very explosive… It's spitting out as hard as it can. It's not so much what you hear, it's what you feel.”
