Hundreds More Hawaii Homes Destroyed as Lava Surge Fills Coastal Bay

Hundreds More Hawaii Homes Destroyed as Lava Surge Fills Coastal Bay

However, it was clear Monday that the vast majority of the approximately 500 homes in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland are gone.

That was the message Wednesday morning from Janet Snyder, spokeswoman for Mayor Harry Kim.

County Managing Director Wil Okabe said his own vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots was also threatened by lava.

Authorities began evacuating the Kapoho area last week, with most residents ushered to safety by early Saturday, just hours before lava severed all road access to the region. He said the area is a mix of vacation rentals and year-round residences.

And it not only took homes, it completely filled Kapoho Bay, extending.8 miles from the coastline.

USGS' Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said Monday that parts of the channelized flow from a fissure were starting to break out and move north.

"What used to be the bay is now all lava bed, new land, nearly a mile out into the ocean", the civil defense spokesman said.

Carolyn Boudreault, a Kapoho resident who is now staying in Boston with her family, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that the bay was a treasured place.

"On the northern end of that, there are just a few homes in the [Kapoho] beach lots area".

"He was very depressed", Okabe said of how Kim felt about losing his vacation home.

At the same time, most of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, one of the island's biggest tourist attractions, remains closed indefinitely due to hazards from ash and volcanic rock ejected from the summit crater, and accompanying earthquakes that have damaged park facilities.

"It's a attractive blue day, but it really seems eerie up there, lots and lots of ash covering areas near Jagger Museum and the earthquakes really make things seem very unsettled", she said. He told reporters that there is still plenty of shelter space but that state officials are working with federal counterparts to work on a plan for housing people who've lost their homes to the lava.

According to Snyder, a number of drone operators have been cited for violating the temporary flight restriction area over lava flows.
