Lava from various fissures - and lately from fissure 8 exclusively - has consumed homes in Leilani Estates, the neighboring Lanipuna Gardens and farther east at the Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland subdivisions in Kapoho, where the once-picturesque Kapoho Bay, prized for its tidepools, was filled in.
It's possible a new fissure will open or vigorous flows could emerge from vents that have been inactive. Only residents are allowed there.
At Kilauea's summit, there continue to be explosions that shoot plumes of ash into the sky.
Many people whose homes have been destroyed don't have insurance, and FEMA officials are working with local authorities to get disaster assistance to those who qualify. There were two small blasts Monday, including one after a magnitude-5.4 natural disaster, scientists said. But the unit has been broken since Thursday.
Ash expelled during explosions may cause poor visibility and slippery conditions for drivers.
