The outlet reported that hundreds of homes have been destroyed, including the second home of the Big Island's mayor.

"We lost hundreds of homes in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland overnight, but we don't have exact figures", Janet Snyder, a spokeswoman for Hawaii County, told AFP.

The latest two communities affected by the lava flow had been ordered evacuated beforehand and there were no immediate reports of any casualties. Okabe described the area as a mix of vacation rentals and year-round residences.

Lava is also believed to have filled in a small bay at the eastern tip of Hawaii's Big Island, civil defense officials said on Tuesday.

Officials with the U.S. Geological Survey said Wednesday that the entire neighborhood of Vacationland has been covered by lava, and the nearby Kapoho subdivision has only a few structures remaining.
