Lava from a Kilauea volcano fissure advances up a residential street in Leilani Estates, on Hawaii's Big Island, on May 27, 2018 in Pahoa, Hawaii.

Eruptions from Mount Kilauea have continued for almost a month, with lava fountains as high as 200 feet feeding a northeasterly lava flow recorded as fast as 200 yards per hour.

The Hawai'i County Civil Defense ordered fresh evacuations in the Leilani Estates after a fast-moving lava flow began moving through the area.

Mr Kim also instigated mayor emergency rule, effective immediately that means only residents, government staff, contractors, non-government employees and volunteers would be allowed in the areas of Kapoho Beach Lots, Vacationland and Kapoho Farm Lots.

A Hawaiian hothead pulled a gun on a neighbor who returned to the area to check on his lava-threatened home, according to a report.

Earlier in the day, a small explosion of ash erupted from the summit of the volcano early in a vertical plume some 4600 metres high, the US Geological Survey said.

Kilauea rumbled back to life on May 3, marking the latest phase of an eruption cycle that has continued almost non-stop for 35 years.

The National Weather Service advised that Pele's hair and the other volcanic glasses and ashes falling downwind from the volcano could cause skin and eye irritation along with respiratory issues.

Gov. David Ige told reporters that the power plant was "sufficiently safe". But the Island of Hawaii is made up of 5 volcanoes, and only Kilauea is erupting.

"Persons in violation of this order are subject to arrest and will be liable for any costs associated with rescue operations in the mandatory evacuation area", the county said on its website.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a fast-moving lava flow is now traveling down Highway 132 near the intersection of Noni Farms road.

Both gases are colorless, but hydrogen sulfide carries an "offensive odor", says the USGS, similar to the smell of a sewer, or farts.

Scientists believe that volcanic activity can be a precursor to a major eruption, similar to the Kilauea eruption in the mid-1920s.

The lava breached the property overnight. Vog is a haze created when sulfur dioxide gas and other volcanic pollutants mix with moisture and dust. Wind conditions for Wednesday were forecast to result in widespread vog - or volcanic smog- over the Big Island.

Lava flows crossed the main access road to the Puna Geothermal Venture plant and were threatening to cover several wells. During the four-week crisis, molten rock has spread across four-and-a-half square miles of the Big Island - more than three times the area of New York's Central Park.
