The eruption of the Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island is worsening. It has now created 19 fissures in the eastern rift zone among housing subdivisions near the island’s southeastern corner, one of which is spewing “lava bombs” into the air; and scientists say an explosion is imminent.
One of the newest fissures has been seen tossing “spatter bombs” of lava at distances of up to 500 feet, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. At least three dozen structures have already been damaged or destroyed by lava from the fissures, which began opening up over ten days ago in the Leilani Estates neighborhood of Puna, according to Forbes.
The unpredictable 2,000-degree lava is taking its toll on volcano evacuees on Hawaii’s Big Island. But there is one predictable outcome: the volcanic situation in Hawaii is going to get worse. Evacuees are now awaiting an “imminent” eruption that could rain car-size boulders and ash onto this tropical paradise.
