Some lava evacuees may return to homes during 'stable' flow

His definition of stable means that lava continues to flow along a path toward the ocean that isn't threatening additional areas.

Kilauea has been erupting since the start of May, with the resulting lava flow destroying hundreds of buildings.

Officials are transitioning to recovery efforts, with help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is starting to do damage assessments, Magno said.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist Janet Babb says there hasn't been a lot of change in recent days as lava from an erupting volcano keeps spewing from a crack in the ground.

Lava fountains from a fissure in the volcano reached as high as 55m from Saturday night into Sunday, pushing flows of molten rock into the ocean, it said. A fissure is shooting fountains of lava into the air, which is flowing to the ocean.

In the meantime, fewer workers are needed to staff a 24-hour operations center and officials are reducing checkpoints, Magno said. Only residents are allowed there.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 5.2 quake happened around 4:50 a.m. Saturday on the Big Island and felt as far as Hilo.

"Seismic activity at the crater continues with gas explosions and ash eruptions under 10,000 feet (3,050m)".

A National Weather Service radar unit has been helping provide data about the heights of the ash plumes and the direction of ash fall.

The lava's entry into the ocean was also producing laze - a hazardous mix of acidic steam, hydrochloric acid gas and tiny shards of volcanic glass.

The USGS has continued to warn island residents that they are in danger of being exposed to flying debris from the "sudden explosive interaction between lava and water".
