Laze is formed when hot lava hits the ocean, reacts with sea water and sends hydrochloric acid and steam with fine glass particles in the air. He told reporters on Monday that temblors are almost continuous at the summit and that gas emissions remain "very high".

Lava flow spreads on Hawaii's Big Island, destroying more homes a month after the Kilauea volcano eruption.

When asked at a news conference Sunday night how many people remain stranded by lava, Hawaii Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno did not provide much more detail, saying, "Got reports of seeing people here and there".

"It stings", he said. "And you don't want to be breathing that". Snyder says that's up from Friday's count of 87.

Lava early Tuesday destroyed Big Island Mayor Harry Kim's second home in Vacationland, Snyder said.

The latest spree of seismic activity will fuel fears the volcano could unleash another massive explosion of lava and poisonous gases, pronging the misery of residents evacuated from the area. The latest eruptions have left almost a dozen people stranded in an area cut off by lava, Hawaii authorities announced Sunday.

Some chose to stay and now the area has no power, cell reception, landlines or county water.

Lava has covered a total of 8 square miles, scientists said Monday. "God only knows what it's going to do next", he said.

Three people were evacuated from an isolated part of the Kapoho community Sunday, according to the Hawaii Fire Department.

There have been various arrests of people forcing their way through blocked areas. They stopped to inquire about their situation, and then when asked, airlifted them to a safe place. Okabe described the area as a mix of vacation rentals and year-round residences. He told reporters that there is still plenty of shelter space but that state officials are working with federal counterparts to work on a plan for housing people who've lost their homes to the lava.

Most of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park remains closed because of a series of damaging earthquakes, corrosive volcanic ash and explosions from Halema'uma'u, the summit crater of Kilauea.

"We understand and commiserate with our community and visitors about the prolonged closure, but we can not provide safe access to the Kīlauea section of the park as long as these very unpredictable dangers threaten the safety of park staff and visitors", said Park Superintendent Cindy Orlando.

"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.
