The ground splitting apart and raising/lowering on the two sides. The cracks here went down 40-50 feet in certain spots.
New huge cracks next to two small fissures technically considered part of fissure 10 up at the corner of Pomaikai and Malama are growing and now steaming. The cracks on these properties run parallel to each other approximately 100 ft wide at their widest point going in the direction straight down rift in the middle of the fissure line.

'Bizarre new normal': Kilauea eruptions no sign of slowing down

Eruptions just keep going in lower Puna, where more than 500 homes have been destroyed.

Eruptions just keep going in lower Puna, where more than 500 homes have been destroyed.
Hawaii County authorities say the number of homes confirmed destroyed in ongoing eruptions is now at 614.

Coverage of the Kilauea eruption threatening Puna subdivisions.

The new figure comes amid ongoing eruptions on the Big Island, which have forced thousands from their homes.

Lava fountains from fissure no. 8 continue to feed a channelized flow headed toward the sea, while at least two other fissures are also active.

Comment: The relentless activity seen at Kilauea since it began erupting in May is reflected in the overall increase in seismic and volcanic activity all around the world: For more on the changes occurring on our planet, check out SOTTs' monthly documentary: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - May 2018: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

The volcano is located in the city of León in Western Nicaragua.

The Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies (INETER) registered the explosion at 7.08pm local time (2pm BST) on Thursday.

The eruption sent a plume of smoke 500 metres into the air, as well as shooting rocks and volcanic gasses.

INETER has reported pyroclastic material in the smoke column, but no pyroclastic flows have occurred.

New explosive eruption at Shinmoedake volcano, Japan

A new explosive eruption took place at Japan's Shinmoedake volcano, a part of Kirishimayama volcanic complex, at 00:09 UTC (09:09 JST) on June 22, 2018. This was its first explosive eruption since May 14.

The eruption ejected a column of ash up to 4.6 km (14 000 feet) above sea level, according to the Tokyo VAAC. Volcanic material was thrown as far as 1.1 km (0.7 miles) from the crater.

This was the first explosive eruption of this volcano since 05:44 UTC on May 14. That eruption sent ash up to 7.6 km (25 000 feet) above sea level, making it nearly 1 km higher than April 4th eruption and the highest since the current eruptive phase of this volcano began on March 1, 2018.

Comment: This comes days after an M6.1 earthquake in Osaka. Japan, which killed 3 people, and a few months following Shinmoedake's first recorded pyroclastic flow.

Kilaeua: Lava covers more than 9 miles of island, M5.4 quake reported

Since lava broke to the surface, it has overrun 5,914 acres of land, or roughly nine and a quarter square miles.

The total number of homes destroyed stands at 467.

Seismic activity is on an almost predictable cycle after another strong earthquake Saturday morning.

A large explosion happened just after 10:20 a.m. at the summit of Kilauea. Officials say it had the energy of a 5.3 magnitude earthquake.

No tsunami was generated.

Air quality remains an issue as gasses and ash clog the air. USGS reports that the eruption from the lower East Rift Zone remains steady in Leilani Estates with few changes taking place over the past few days.

On Saturday, lava fountains from fissure no. 8 reached heights of about 170 feet into the air.

With the fast-moving flow, it was a similar scene all week.

Volcano in the Galapagos Islands erupts after series of 9 earthquakes

A volcano on the Galapagos Islands has started erupting
Lava flows and a gas column spanning about two to three kilometers high have been a feature of the eruption.

According to the Geophysical Institute (I) of the National Polytechnic School, the Galapagos' La Cumbre volcano - located on Fernandina island - erupted Saturday.

The eruption took place between 11:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. (Galapagos time) and was preceded by a series of nine earthquakes ranging from 2.5-magnitude to 4.1-magnitude. La Cumbre volcano measures 1,476-meter high and occupies almost the entire island. The eruption occurred on the northeastern sector of the volcano.

Lava flows and a gas column spanning about two to three kilometers high have been a feature of the eruption. Reports are that a flow has already reached the sea.

"There are some species that could be affected, however, being a flow (of lava) that is in only one direction, on only one side of the island, the possible impacts that there would be would not have a significant impact on biodiversity," director of the Galapagos National Park (PNG), Jorge Carrion, assured.

Sakurajima volcano erupts again in southwestern Japan

Sakurajima volcano, on Kyushu island in southern Japan, erupted on June 16, blasting smoke thousands of meters into the air, according to Japanese Media.

Sakurajima volcano, on Kyushu island in southern Japan, erupted on June 16, blasting smoke thousands of meters into the air, according to Japanese Media.
The Sakurajima volcano in Kagoshima prefecture, southwestern Japan, saw an explosive eruption Saturday morning and no injury has been reported.

The eruption was observed at around 7:20 a.m. local time at one of the peaks of the volcano, spewing volcanic ash 4,700 meters into the sky, according to the local weather agency.

Sakurajima is an active composite volcano and a former island in Kagoshima prefecture. The most recent eruption started on May 2, 2017.
