A strong quake beneath the erupting Mount Kilauea volcano shook Hawaii's Big Island and sent up an 8,000-foot ash plume, scientists said.

The USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says the explosion was associated with a Magnitude 5.5 natural disaster.

Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea destroyed hundreds of homes overnight, a Hawaii County spokeswoman revealed Tuesday.

The site marked the latest challenge facing authorities during what geologists call an unprecedented, simultaneous eruption at Kilauea's summit and from giant fissures 25 miles (40 km) down its eastern side. "A Hawaiian County Fire Department overflight reported that the lava filled the lake and apparently evaporated all the water", the report said. But the Hawaii Civil Defense Agency said the fallout will affect the volcano and Pahala areas, and cautioned about the possibility of aftershocks.

A thermal map shows the fissure system and lava flows on Sunday, June 3 as the flow from Fissure 8 continues to advance towards the ocean in Kapoho Bay.

Mounting property losses were reported a day after five or six people who initially chose to stay in the newly evacuated Kapoho area after road access was cut off were rescued by helicopter, according to the Hawaii County Civil Defense agency.

At least 87 homes have been destroyed by the Kilauea volcano eruption in the four weeks since lava began flowing, Hawaii Civil Defense spokesman Talmadge Magno said Friday.

"Persons remaining in the mandatory evacuation area ... do so at their own risk with the knowledge that emergency responders may not respond, ' Mayor Harry Kim has warned". "This is something most of us will never see in our lifetime", he said.

Almost a dozen people were left stranded in an area cut off by lava on Sunday.

On the coast as the lava reaches the ocean it is sending up a large plume of what's known as laze - formed when lava reacts with seawater to form a mix of acid fumes, steam and glass-like specks.

There have been various arrests of people forcing their way through blocked areas. He faces charges that include refusing to evacuate and reckless driving.

"These remnant and sub-populations of wildlife may no longer persist, rapidly decline, or become further fragmented and/or contract in range", said Steve Bergfeld, the Branch Manager of the DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife, in the release.
