Scientists: No way to know when Hawaii eruption will end

This Wednesday, June 6, 2018 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey shows a fish-eye view of a lava delta filling the former Kapoho Bay at the town of Kapoho on the island of Hawaii. While the delta margin nearest the ocean has cooled somewhat, the lava flow front is still very hot and producing laze (lava haze). Laze is a local hazard composed of acidic gases and volcanic glass fragments and should be avoided. (U.S. Geological Survey via AP)

Officials said that the flow of lava from the Kilauea volcano is still very active and they are unsure when the eruption will end or if more lava-spewing vents will open. Hundreds of homes have been destroyed in the past two days since more lava poured into the low-laying coastal Hawaii neighborhoods. Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim said lava has destroyed more than 600 homes since early last month.
