The USGS also said at the volcano summit a massive collapse occurred at 04:49 a.m. causing a massive energy release equivalent to a magnitude 5.3 earthquake

Incredible images show devastating lava flows from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano which wiped out hundreds of houses in just ONE night - including Big Island mayor's second home

Aerial shows devastating lava flows from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano

Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim's home was among the at least 160 houses in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland wiped out by lava flows on Monday night. But Janet Snyder, a spokeswoman for Hawaii County on the Big Island, said they believe the number could be much higher - in the hundreds. 'Harry had a premonition this was going to happen,' she told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. 'Vacationland is almost totally destroyed.'

USGS tells Hawaii residents not to roast MARSHMALLOWS over lava as it issues warning that 'hazardous eruption is imminent, underway or suspected'

USGS warns Hawaii residents not to roast marshmallows over lava and issues highest alert

On Monday, a user asked the USGS if it was possible to take the popular fluffy treat and dangle it over the volcanic vents sprouting across the Big Island (bottom inset). 'Erm...we're going to have to say no, that's not safe. (Please don't try!),' the USGS asserted (top inset). Residents were pressed to evacuate the Leilani Estate area  so that they wouldn't be caught up in the lava's latest movements

She's gonna blow! USGS raises warning to its highest level and says 'major eruption' of Kilauea volcano is imminent as huge ash plume billows 12,000 FEET into the sky

Hawaii goes on RED ALERT for 'major eruption' of Kilauea volcano

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could have a major, explosive eruption at 'any time', the US Geographical Survey has said. Nearly 20 lava-spewing fissures have opened up, and lava is spilling towards roads. The volcano has been erupting for 10 days, and more than 2000 residents have already been evacuated. A recent lowering of the lava lake at the volcano's Halemaumau crater 'has raised the potential for explosive eruptions' at the volcano, the USGS said. Some of the vents in the volcano are now reportedly releasing such high levels of sulphur dioxide that it's posing a grave danger to anyone nearby.

Hawaii Kilauea eruption could trigger volcanoes along the West Coast as part of a chain reaction caused by the Pacific Ring of Fire, experts warn

Hawaii braces for lava flow, West Coast preps for possible eruptions of 13 Ring of Fire

Following the eruption of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, experts on the West Coast of America are now warning of potential volcanic eruptions involving the 13 volcanoes forming the Pacific's 'Ring of Fire.' The West Coast is home to an 800-mile chain of 13 volcanoes, include Mount St. Helens, whose spectacular 1980 eruption in the Pacific Northwest killed dozens of people and sent volcanic ash across the country, and Mount Rainier, which towers above the Seattle metro area. The concern over West Coast volcanic activity comes as residents in Hawaii brace themselves for a possible torrent of lava flow in the wake of Kilauea's May 3 eruption.
