The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency said seismic activity at the crater continues with gas explosions and ash eruptions under 3,050 metres but while the eruption is never predictable, conditions appear stable for the moment.

The eruption has spewed out enough lava to fill 45,400 Olympic-sized pools since it started, the US Geological Survey said.

The Big Island volcano has been erupting for more than a month, sending lava into neighborhoods from cracks in the ground and destroying hundreds of homes.

It's not just bubbling out fast, it's hot too.

Scientists at the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory say communities on the south part of the island may be impacted by falling ash.

The melting point of steel is about 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Despite his criticism of Western governments, Assad said his nation is "ready" to cooperate if they "change" their "political position".

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 5.2 quake happened around 4:50 a.m. Saturday on the Big Island and felt as far as Hilo.

Also Saturday, there was an explosive eruption of rock and ash at Kilauea's summit at 4:50 a.m. that produced a plume expected to possibly blow to the southwest toward Wood Valley, Pahala and Ocean View.

U.S. Geological Survey and Hawaii County Civil Defense reports said lava overflowed the channel for several hours near the intersection of Highway 132 and Pohoiki Road, though nearly none of the overspill extended beyond hardened lava previously laid down since the eruption in Puna's lower East Rift Zone began May 3 in the middle of the residential subdivision.

The lava's entry into the ocean was also producing laze - a hazardous mix of acidic steam, hydrochloric acid gas and tiny shards of volcanic glass.

The other half of the residents in a more vulnerable area are allowed back during the day if conditions are safe.
