A Hawaii volcano that began to erupt May 3 continues to spew lava and ash into the air. USGS photos show lava flowing from fissures to the ocean, creating a dense white "lava haze."
More than three dozen houses have been destroyed and over 1,000 people evacuated from Leilani Estates and nearby communities in Pahoa, Hawaii. Lava spewed hundreds of feet into the air during the eruption. Lava, steam and toxic gases spread around 387,500 square feet within the first three days of the eruption, with more magma in the system that may still erupt, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
