Terrifying new aerial photos show a growing river of molten rock flowing from a fissure at the foot of Kilauea Volcano destroying homes on Hawaii's Big Island.

Lava in Vacationland early Tuesday claimed the second home of Harry Kim, the mayor of the Big Island, Snyder said.

County Managing Director Wil Okabe said his own vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots was also threatened by lava. No deaths have yet been reported but the eruptions have covered more than 5,000 acres and lava flow has now been described as a "flood". These were vacation homes and rentals, as well as primary residences.

Clouds of steam rose over Kapoho Bay on Hawaii's Big Island after a stream of lava from the Kilauea volcano made contact with the sea on Monday, June 4.

Lava had covered almost 8 square miles (20.7 sq km) of landscape as of Monday, and some 9,900 earthquakes had been recorded on the Big Island since Kilauea rumbled back to life last month.

"I'm really kind of at peace actually", he said. It was initially thought lost to lava, but county officials later said it had been spared.

On Sunday, the flow crept toward Kapoho Bay, a roughly 1,000-foot-wide ocean retreat. Officials issued mandatory orders for residents of Leilani Estates, and those in Kapoho Beach and Vacationland were advised to leave last Friday (Saturday NZT) or risk being trapped and unreachable by emergency crews.

The two communities, comprising a quiet vacation spot once popular for its snorkeling and tide pools, sat at the edge of a small, shallow inlet called Kapoho Bay.

"I just locked my doors and walked away", said Betty Oberman, a 28-year Vacationland resident who headed the neighborhood watch organization there.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense agency was putting the confirmed number of buildings lost to the current eruption at 117 on Monday, mostly residential properties.
