Authorities said more lava fissures opened overnight in the Leilani Estates area, where lava leapt up to 230 feet (70 meters) into the air. Two homes have burned. A magnitude-6.9 quake - Hawaii's largest in additional than 40 years - hit the realm Friday.

"My heart and soul's there", she said in a phone interview from a cabin on the north side of the Big Island, where the family had hunkered down.

"But this is within the known behaviour of the volcano". But he realized it was too soon to be sure when, or if, it would be safe from the moving lava.

In this handout photo provided by the U.S. Geological Survey, lava from a fissure slowly rolls down the street on Saturday in the Leilani Estates subdivision near Pahoa, Hawaii after the eruption of the Kilauea volcano last week.

Resident Julie Woolsey told the AP she released her chickens, put her dogs in her vehicle and evacuated with her daughter and grandson on Thursday. "It's hard to keep up".

She let her chickens loose, loaded her dogs into her truck and evacuated with her daughter and grandson. She was originally staying with a friend, but later chose to camp out in the parking lot.

The activity will continue, Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno said Friday.

Geologist Janet Babb said the magma crossed under Highway 130, which leads to a popular volcano access point, on Tuesday night.

Starting around 11am local time on Friday, the island experienced a flurry of earthquakes, culminating in the massive magnitude 6.9 tremor. Merchandise fell off the shelves in a natural food store he owns.

KHON reported that some viewers on the island of Oahu, about 200 miles away, felt the shaking.

"We're all rattled right now", he said. "It's feeling kind of stressful out here". Hawaii's then-Gov. Neil Abercrombie said it caused the state tens of millions of dollars in damage.

Hawaii Electric Light said the jolt knocked out power to about 14,400 customers, but electricity was restored about two hours later.

Gov. David Ige said he's activated the Hawaii National Guard to help with evacuations and security. Narrow fissures appeared on the ground at a building overlooking the crater at Kilauea's summit.

Its epicenter was located 11 miles (17.7 km) southwest of Leilani Estates, one of the communities where lava has been flowing into residential areas.

Gebbie and is only one of more than a thousand residents who evacuated and are running from Pele, not knowing what the future holds. He was frustrated because he wanted to feed his rabbits and dogs and check on his property.

The residents of Leilani Estates are going through a very hard time. She stormed past police unopposed. But when he saw lava tear through the streets near his Leilani Estates home, he knew he needed to leave.

Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, has been erupting continuously since 1983. There was no indication when the lava might stop or how far it might spread.

While Kilauea has been active for 35 years, the latest activity began when parts of its lava-filled crater started collapsing last Monday.

The collapse caused magma to push more than 16 kilometers downslope toward the populated southeast coastline.

Residents have faced lava threats before.

Lava flows on a road within the Leilani Estates subdivision, a neighbourhood just outside of Pahoa, the town that was threatened by lava four years ago. But this flow stalled just before it reached Pahoa's main road.

Their home is in Kalapana, which is close to a roadway that was swallowed up by lava.
