Lava from an erupting Hawaii volcano has destroyed more than 100 homes in a rural Big Island district.

The final phase of the evacuation was carried out late on Friday and early Saturday by fire and police department personnel, with help from the Hawaii National Guard and public works teams, county civil defense spokeswoman Janet Snyder told Reuters by email.

The number of homes swallowed by the lava flowing from fissures has jumped to at least 87, up the from the 77 reported destroyed Thursday.

Neymar scores stunner for Brazil on injury return
Until Neymar stepped onto the pitch it was Croatia who had the best opportunities in a match that seemed headed for a boring draw. Tite said there was no doubt that Neymar gives them something extra but said that needed to be kept in perspective.

UPDATE (8:20 a.m.) - USGS reported on Tuesday morning that "the northernmost lobe of the Fissure 8 flow, in the Noni Farms Road area, advanced downslope about 200 yards overnight".

A morning overflight confirmed that lava completely filled Kapoho Bay, inundated most of Vacationland and covered all but the northern part of Kapoho Beach Lots, scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said. The seven individuals will have to appear in court, Hawaii officials said.

At the Kilauea summit, another explosion occurred early Tuesday morning, accompanied by a 5.5 magnitude natural disaster.

Kilauea, which is located on Hawaii's Big Island, began erupting more than a month ago.

Several dead as Guatemala volcano erupts
David de Leon, spokesman for the disaster agency, said authorities had already evacuated about 300 people from nearby areas. A total of about a million people have been affected by the eruption, the Guatemalan government says.

But there's also danger in what's known as a laze - a deadly combination of steam, hydrochloric acid and fine glass particles (dubbed Pele's hair) - created when the lava hits the water.

In its report, the US Air Force said: "Modern aerial bombing has a substantial probability of success for diversion of lava from most expected types of eruptions on Mauna Loa's Northeast Rift Zone, if Hilo is threatened and if Air Force assistance is requested".

One of more than a dozen fissures in the earth's crust caused by the natural disaster, Fissure 8, continues to feed a half-mile-wide lava flow toward the ocean at a rate of 250 feet per hour, the USGS said Sunday. The Civil Defense Agency warned it could cause injury if it got in residents' eyes or was breathed in. The rest were consumed weeks earlier in the larger Leilani Estates subdivision several miles (km) to the west, where lava-spouting fissures in the ground first opened on May 3.

In addition, at over four weeks, this eruption has lasted longer than the 1955 and 1924 eruptions, the USGS said.
