Explosion rocks Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, sending ash 1 mile high

Giant acidic steam clouds rise from ocean after lava spill in Hawaii (VIDEO)

Kim's second home in Vacationland was added to 117 homes destroyed by lava as of the latest official count, a number Hawai'i County Civil Defense spokeswoman Janet Snyder expects to rise, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.

Lava early Tuesday destroyed the mayor's second home, Snyder said.

County Managing Director Wil Okabe says his vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots is also threatened. Hawaii Civil Defense Service officials said they went through the neighborhood to warn residents this was their last chance to evacuate before their final escape route was cut off by lava.

The official said aerial surveillance of the area showed only the northern portion of Kapoho Beach and the southernmost "sliver" of Vacationland - the latter consisting of only about half a dozen homes - were left unscathed.

"The difference between our June 3rd and June 5th images are dramatic, with lava completely filling Kapoho Bay by yesterday afternoon", a spokesperson for the company said in a statement. Officials issued mandatory orders for residents of Leilani Estates, and those in Kapoho Beach and Vacationland were advised to leave last Friday (Saturday NZT) or risk being trapped and unreachable by emergency crews.

USGS' Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said Monday that parts of the channelized flow from a fissure were starting to break out and move north.

Lava claimed Harry Pomerleau's home in Vacationland.

Solidarity in euro zone should not lead to debt union, Merkel says
Most Eastern European states have shunned the deal, leaving countries like Greece and Italy complaining of unfair burdens. German Chancellor Angela Merkel held a phone conversation with Italy's new Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on June 2.

On Sunday, the flow crept toward Kapoho Bay, a roughly 1,000-foot-wide ocean retreat.

Kilauea's current upheaval comes on the heels of an eruption cycle that began in 1983 and had continued almost nonstop for 35 years, destroying more than 200 homes.

Pomerleau said all of the vacation homes he did handyman work for are gone.

The flow, which is a half-mile wide in parts, entered the sea Sunday night, according to the Hawaii County Civil Defense, sending large plumes of "laze" - a risky mix of steam, gas and volcanic glass - into the air.

"What used to be the bay is now all lava bed, new land, nearly a mile (1.6 km) out into the ocean", the civil defense spokesman told Reuters.

"God only knows what it's going to do next", Johnson said. She said it would be some time before precise losses were confirmed.
