The Impressive Eruption of the Kilauea Volcano of Hawaii in Pictures

Since the Kilauea volcano erupted, it has been spewing lava and toxic gases throughout the region. Lava has destroyed dozens of homes, and many more are in danger.

Here we leave you the most impressive images that capture the devastation left by the eruption of Kilauea volcano.

The lava has extended to about 36 thousand square meters around the most active fissure, although the speed of the movement is slow. So far it is not known when it could stop or how far it could be extended.

Lava from a robust fissure eruption on Mount Kilauea's east rift zone consumes a home, then threatens another, near Pahoa, Hawaii. The total number of homes lost within the Leilani Estates subdivision thus far is 21, and geologists from the Hawaii Volcanoes Observatory do not expect the eruption to cease any time soon. A local state of emergency has been declared after Kilauea erupted near residential areas, forcing mandatory evacuation of about 1,700 citizens from their nearby homes. The crater's floor collapsed on May 1 and is continuing to erode its walls and generating huge explosions of ash. Several earthquakes have been recorded in the area where the volcanic eruptions continue, including a 6.9 magnitue quake which struck the area on May 4.
