An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area Wednesday with the force of a 5.4 magnitude quake and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level.

For example, one small ohia tree was observed by a National Park Service employee last week during a tour of a two-year-old inactive flow.

People that have private property in the affected areas will still own their land, though it will need to be reassessed once the lava stops flowing.

The volcano in the Big Island of Hawaii, still continuous to erupt, with no signs of calming down.

Ige and Kim also announced formation of a task force of federal, state and local officials to devise a recovery plan for communities devastated by the eruption, with an eye toward preventing such major property losses in the future.

"A lot of the ocean entries are extraordinarily unstable", Ferracane said.

Lava completely covered the Big Island's Vacationland neighborhood, destroying hundreds of homes and pouring into the Kapoho Bay, where it formed at least 0.8 miles of land that juts into the sea, the Associated Press reports.

Lava erupts in Leilani Estates during ongoing eruptions of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii, June 5, 2018. About 100 structures had been destroyed before the latest eruption, but about 500 homes in the communities of Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland were in the direct path of the lava. Over 600 homes destroyed by lava rivers in Hawaii. "I'm talking about 600 families".

As of early Friday 24 separate fissures covered almost 8 square miles of land in lava.

Lava flows across a highway on the outskirts of Pahoa during ongoing eruptions of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii, U.S., June 5, 2018.

This helicopter footage shot on the morning of June 6 shows the new lava delta and clouds of steam, hydrochloric acid gas and volcanic glass shards rising from where lava made contact with the sea.

Thousands of residents have been left shell-shocked by the devastation that's been pounding the island.
