Who Owns Hawaii's New Kapoho Peninsula Created by Kilauea's Lava?

European Space Agency

New footage has been released by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) showing lava stretching a mile out to sea after filling Kapoho Bay on Hawaii's Big Island.

Lava flows across a highway on the outskirts of Pahoa during ongoing eruptions of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii, U.S., June 5, 2018.

Kim, who had previously said it would take a minimum of $5 million per mile to fix roads ravaged by Kilauea, said the $12 million will help Hawaii County "focus on the critical tasks of making life better for our people affected by the eruption".

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area with the force of a 5.4 magnitude quake and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level. While the delta margin nearest the ocean has cooled somewhat, the lava flow front is still very hot and producing laze (lava haze).

"Vacationland is gone, there's no evidence of any properties there at all", Wendy Stovall, a vulcanologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), told reporters on a conference call. The lava filled Kapoho Bay within two hours after the eruption began and formed a delta extending almost a mile from shore as it cools, according to the USGS.

Fast-moving lava from fissure 8 poured into the low-laying coastal Hawaii neighborhoods in just two days this week, destroying hundreds of homes.

Lava has swamped the island's largest lake as well as the areas of Vacationland and Kapoho Bay. The new land in Kapoho Bay is now owned by the state, but the peninsula won't look like the farmland that dominates that region of the Big Island anytime soon.

Most of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park remains closed due to persistent earthquakes and eruptions of corrosive volcanic ash.

Scientists from the air and on the ground are trying to track existing ground cracks. Scientists said that while the height of the lava is variable depending on the source and local topography, much of the area is covered in 10 to 20 feet (3 to 6 meters) of lava.

Many homeowners are unable to access their homes as the lava damaged the properties.
