volcano update: Hawaii STILL growing EACH DAY, a mile of new land added


Hawaii volcano update: Hawaii STILL growing EACH DAY as Kilauea lava flows into the sea
HAWAII’S Kilauea volcano is still terrorising Big Island as it continues to spill lava into the ocean, adding to an already major new outcrop of land jutting out from the coast.

The Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island has now entered into its second month of eruption as it pushes a river of viscous red lava into the ocean.

Until recently the volcano has shown little sign of change, with an established channel flowing from the summit down to the ocean.

About a mile of new land has formed as a result, the latest addition to Hawaii’s volcanic islands.

So far, there have been no deaths and few injuries reported as a result of the eruption, but more than 600 homes are thought to have been destroyed.
