Eruption of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano imminent after warning level raised to red

Another ashfall warning issued for Big Island following ash plume from Halemaumau Crater

The county issued a Condition Red alert warning people that the sulfur dioxide gasses being released pose an immediate danger to public health. It says people may be unable to breathe if exposed. The latest fissure is by the Lanipuna Gardens.

Authorities recommend leaving the area and seeking medical attention if severely affected.

Lava has surged into residential areas, decimating dozens of structures.

Since the Kilauea volcano erupted May 3, it's been one nightmare after another for residents in the southeast part of the Big Island.

The Big Island tourism board estimates $5 million worth of cancellations from May through July.

It comes as webcams placed near the edge of the Kilauea volcano, which have been refreshing every few minutes, showed gases and scorching lava spluttering out as fissures continue to form after more than a week of continuous eruptions.

Officials warned residents to leave the area and get medical attention if they're affected by the gas.

Resident Stacy Welch inspects lava next to a destroyed home located 250-feet from her home, which remains standing, in the Leilani Estates neighborhood in the aftermath of eruptions from the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island on May 7, 2018 in Pahoa, Hawaii.

The agency's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory issued the highest level alert in the afternoon after increased activity within Halemaumau crater.

However this lava flow does not threaten any homes or roads.

Kilauea began erupting on May 3.

Kilauea could become more explosive, according to the USGS.

The ash threatened Ka'u district, which is about 30 miles south west of the volcano, whereas poisonous fuel added to the hazard going through residents, whose escape routes are threatened with closure due to lava flows, officers stated.

The fissure was northeast of fissure 19 and was not threatening any homes or roads when it first opened, according to Civil Defense.

The agency says one "unidentified structure" was destroyed by the new vent, bringing the total number of homes and other buildings lost to lava to almost 40.

Thousands of people have been forced to evacuate. "There really isn't much more that's open".
