It's been more than a week since the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii erupted and there are still new fissures opening up almost every day.

Explosions have intensified on Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, spewing ash and triggering a red alert for aircraft for the first time since the latest eruption began nearly two weeks ago.

Previously, the level of danger on the island was raised to its highest against the background of a volcanic eruption, Kilauea.

Kilauea (translated from Hawaiian - "spewing, much spreading or pouring) is an active volcano on the island of Hawaii".

The 2010 eruptions at Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull caused a major volcanic ash cloud that grounded a vast proportion of air travel, especially to and from Europe, in April and May of that year.

Plume activity at the summit might not be as robust on Wednesday, Poland said.

'At any time, activity may become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent, ' the USGS said on Tuesday afternoon.


"According to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory there is no geologic evidence for an tsunami-generating natural disaster at this time".

Massive swathes of land have been devoured, 37 structures - a lot of them homes - have been destroyed, and around 2,000 people have had to flee their homes.

Pent-up steam could drive a 20,000-foot (6,100-meter) ash plume out of the crater and scatter debris, including rocks the size of refrigerators, over 12 miles, the USGS said.

Ash emission from the Kilauea summit vent will likely be variable with periods of increased and decreased intensity depending on the occurrence of rockfalls into the vent and other changes within the vent.

Tall trees and lush jungle lined parts Luana Street in Leilani Estate before the lava flows.

Kilauea has also taken its toll on the areas booming tourism industry, which sees thousands pouring into the area every month to visit the island's volcano park.

So far, no major injuries or deaths have been reported from the eruption.
