Hawaii's Kilauea volcano is still threatening Big Island after more than a month of continuous eruption has seen swathes of land covered in lava. Who owns the new land Kilauea has created?
Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano continues to spew lava and, as the eruption looks set to enter its third month, there is no end in sight.
Channels established from the volcano summit are flowing into the ocean nearby, creating a hazardous ‘laze’ gas which can irritate people’s eyes, noses and lungs.
The volcano has also been spotted creating ‘gems’ and volcanic glass named pele’s hair.
As lava flow covers significant portions go Kapoho bay on the island, flows of viscous magma are creating new land.
