"This is the same process that caused the summit lava lake to drop out of sight within the "Overlook vent" inside Halemaʻumaʻu Crater".

Almost a dozen people were left stranded in an area cut off by lava on Sunday.

County Managing Director Wil Okabe said his own vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots is also threatened.

Lava from the Kilauea volcano has cut off all access to the community of Kapoho, and officials estimate that this has left about 12 people completely trapped. Officials warned residents in the area to be ready to evacuate with little notice.

Over the weekend, the US Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported more than 500 earthquakes in a 24-hour period - the most ever measured by HVO scientists.

Hawaii Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno told reporters that people needed to stay at least 1,000 feet back from the bay to avoid health effects from the laze, in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency standards.

Lava destroyed hundreds of homes in mostly rural Hawaii area overnight, a county spokeswoman said Tuesday. Picture taken May 3, 208.

"For us it's more of a vacation area, but for those who live there permanently, they're trying to figure out where they're going to be living", he said.

Another 2,000 people have already been evacuated from Leilani Estates, an area further west where dozens of homes have been devoured or cut off by rivers of lava streaming over the landscape since May 3.

For those whose homes have been unscathed, the prolonged strain of uncertainty has grown increasingly hard.

The shelter at Pāhoa Community Center is open and pet-friendly. "It's a attractive spot", she said Monday. "And I don't know what to do", she said. "It's so sharp, it feels like the glass is still in there".

Lava from a Kilauea volcano fissure advances up a residential street in Leilani Estates, on Hawaii's Big Island, on May 27, 2018 in Pahoa, Hawaii.

Lava burned two buildings at the plant, a substation and a warehouse that stored a drilling rig on the property, officials said. The destruction is the largest number of destroyed homes since the eruption began last month.

A moderate quake struck the summit of Kilauea Volcano this morning but does not pose a tsunami threat.

Before this morning's explosion, more than 100 structures had been destroyed since the first eruption a month ago.
