Hawaii Volcano Eruption and aftermath; dramatic visuals inside

The Pavlof volcano erupts on Alaska's remote Aleutian Island archipelago in March 2016

Rachel Smigelski-Theiss is among those who have changed their plans.

Scientists worry Kilauea volcano could soon send boulders and ash shooting out of its summit crater. They view their trip as a once in a lifetime opportunity.

As long as people stay away, they will be safe, Johnson said, noting that residents are likely well aware of the potential dangers while tourists may be less so.

Hawaii officials have had a busy month pleading with travelers to keep their plans even as they're bombarded with images of natural disasters.

Geologists expect new lava outbreaks in or around the already hard-hit Leilani Estates area in the southeastern Puna district, which is about 20 miles (32 km) south of Hilo, where 27 homes have been destroyed and all 1,900 residents have been evacuated.

In Pahoa, the nearest village to Kilauea, some schools remained closed after the area was hit last week by a 6.9 magnitude quake, the biggest since 1975.

Since the quake, there have been frequent aftershocks.

Authorities ordered two subdivisions in the area to evacuate last week.

Kilauea has destroyed 36 structures - including 26 homes - since May 3, when it began releasing lava from vents about 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of the summit crater.

And now, scientists are warning that an explosive eruption may occur at the summit crater within weeks.

At a meeting on Thursday night, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientist Steve Brantley told residents that magma created by a 1955 eruption was being forced to the surface by Kilauea.

A suburban Atlanta police officer resigned after his department said he used foul language and inappropriate tactics during the arrest of a 65-year-old grandmother during a traffic stop, recorded on a police. The lodge, which has 12 rooms and 4 cottages, has had a handful of cancellations. Fresher magma may also produce lava fountains that shoot higher into the air and larger, faster-moving lava flows. There were no eruptions overnight, but the O'Neal said the situation is still unstable.

She said that's why the lava has been cool and has been moving a little sluggishly. The observatory, which is part of the U.S. Geological Survey's Volcano Hazards Program, released a warning stating that the current conditions near and in the Kilauea volcano may provoke further explosions.

Like the town of Kamuela which is home to vast cattle ranches and Hawaii's own cowboys, called paniolo.

Workers are moving the fuel to an industrial park about 30 miles (48.2 kilometers) away. "We know it is a distinct possibility". "But we also don't want to be stupid", said Cindy Hartman, 68, who lives in the Kalapana-Seaview neighborhood. At the same time, tourism is the island's biggest industry and people's livelihoods are dependent on visitors coming, he said. "We don't know what's going on underground".

In addition, Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, threatens to begin a series of explosive eruptions within days or weeks that could form huge clouds of volcanic smog, or vog, and hurl boulders as big as small cars.

Ige's office said Friday the declaration means federal assistance will be available as the state covers costs associated with damaged roads, public parks, schools, and water pipes.
