A small explosion at the summit of Hawaii's erupting Kilauea Volcano on Sunday (Jun 10) sent ash spewing into the air, creating a driving hazard for roads on parts of the Big Island, the US Geological Survey said.

Fissure 8 continues to produce a large channelized flow that is entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay and producing a large laze plume, civil defense reported Sunday morning.
Lava flow from Fissue 8 is emitting risky gasses, officials say.
The USGS said fountaining from fissure 8 reached as high as about 200 feet Saturday, and there was some minor lava activity from fissures 16 and 18.
Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim announced the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) would carry out an assessment of the number of houses Kilauea destroyed over the coming days, adding the affected buildings could be as many as 700.
