PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) - Hawaii’s Big Island remains on high alert on Saturday after the Kilauea volcano spewed lava into residential areas, forcing hundreds to evacuate, and a series of earthquakes, including a powerful tremor, shook the island.

1700 evacuate, 2 homes destroyed to date.

This site has a lot of excellent pictures.

Toxic gasses are spewing from Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island, as new fissures form and thousands are forced to flee.
The Hawaii Fire Department reports extremely dangerous air quality conditions due to high levels of sulfur dioxide gas in the evacuation area of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens.
Elderly, young, and people with compromised respiratory systems are especially vulnerable, officials say.
Hawaii County spokeswoman Kanani Aton says two of the eight vents that have formed since Thursday are actively spattering lava. A few others are releasing steam and gas while the oldest of the vents aren't doing anything.

Hawaii is preparing for a long haul.
The eruption could go on for a month. Homes, roads, utilities are being destroyed.
That's earth renewal for you.

2 more fissures have opened up and that spreads the risk for deadly gas.

Kilauea may be about to enter a new phase as the lava lake is sinking some and ground water is combining to potentially create explosions of large boulders. Gaseous fogs are becoming a breathing issue.

“This is the first of perhaps more events like that to come,” Tina Neal, the scientist in charge of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said of Wednesday’s blast which shot projectiles from the crater.

My guess is we'll see a large increase in seismic activity worldwide. Very not good.

Well, according to history this isn't unusual. It erupts for several months, some explosive activity if groundwater is mixed in, some foul gases, loss of property, then it calms down. This is Madam Pele' doing her thing.

Idk about increased seismic activity. The suns quiet, but we have had some weird Quakes, like the 4.+ off shore from La.

This is a good briefing by the USGS on the current eruption.

 

The last 3 or 4 minutes really explain how this thing is operating.

 

No end in sight.
