Nearly 20 fissures have opened since the Kilauea volcano started erupting 12 days ago. On Monday, another fissure spewing lava and unhealthy gas opened up, and a crack in the Earth that emerged a day earlier was sending molten rock on a slow run for the ocean, officials said.

Volcanic air pollution and ash-fall have been reported in Pahala, and National Weather Service radar and pilots have reported the top of the volcano’s ash cloud is 10,000 to 12,000 feet above sea level. Kilauea has been intensifying this week with lava continuing to spew from fissures and rocket into the air.

Massive concerns over air quality were raised this week after the lava flow crashed into the Pacific Ocean, releasing toxic gases. Lava flow is also heading towards an 800-acre geothermal plant and experts have warned it could unleash more gases into the air. Experts have warned of further explosions from the Kilauea volcano after its massive eruption last Thursday, which sent a gigantic ash cloud about 30,000 feet into the air.
