    Blue flames emerge on road cracks from Kilauea Volcano eruption

    A third lava flow from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano streamed into the ocean on Thursday as US Marines Corps helicopters stood by to evacuate a Big Island community should molten rock or huge cracks block its final escape route.

    Six huge fissures sent rivers of molten rock through a blackened, volcanic wilderness that was once jungle, farmland and rural homes.

    Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, entered the fourth week of what may be an unprecedented, simultaneous eruption at its summit crater and along a six-mile string of fissures 25 miles down its east flank.

    At least 50 rural homes and other structures have been destroyed by lava from the fissures. One person was seriously injured after being hit by a flying piece of lava.

  • First footage of trillion-tonne iceberg FOUR TIMES the size of London which broke off Antarctica 01:38

    First footage of trillion-tonne iceberg FOUR TIMES the size of London which broke off Antarctica

    Staggering footage which captured a trillion-tonne iceberg for the first time has been filmed by a British student.

    The newly detached iceberg is FOUR TIMES the size of London and was recorded by Ella Gilbert, a PhD Antarctic research student from London on the very first science flight over it.

    The so-called A68 iceberg broke away from the Antarctica Peninsula late last year, resulting in the ice shelf losing 12 percent of its size.

    It is said to measure a whopping 5,800 sq km and the British Antarctic Survey are the first to conduct a science flight in the hope of further understanding greenhouse gases between the ocean and the atmosphere.

  • Lava eruptions from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano light up the night sky 01:44

    Lava eruptions from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano light up the night sky

    Lava oozing out of cracks for two weeks in rural Hawaii neighborhoods took on new characteristics as fresher magma mixed with decades-old magma, sending a flow toward the ocean Saturday.

    By Saturday morning, two of 22 fissures had merged, creating a wide flow advancing at rates of up to 300 yards (274 metres) per hour.

    The flow was 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometres) from the ocean, scientists said.

    According to Wendy Stovall, a US Geological Survey volcanologist, the fountains are created by vents closing, forcing magma to burst through a single outpoint.

    Molten lava from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano could release toxic gas after hitting power plant

    Molten lava from the erupting Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii's Big Island crept onto a geothermal power plant site on Monday, as workers rushed to shut down the facility to prevent the uncontrollable release of toxic gases.

    Crews were working into the night to cap the 11th and final well at the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) plant, which provides about 25% of the Big Island's power, the county said in an alert.

    The race at the site marked the latest challenge facing authorities as they cope with what geologists rank as one of the biggest upheavals in a century from one of the world's most active volcanoes.

    The latest explosive eruption at the Kilauea summit occurred shortly before 6pm local time, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported.

    "The resulting ash plume may affect surrounding areas," it said.

The lava is really hot, so I wasn't sure the drone would make it! I couldn't stand 3-4m from the flow. But the constant airflow of the props made sure it kept cool enough.

    Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Erupts, Sending A Plume Of Ash 30,000 Feet Into The Air!

    An eruption from the Kilauea volcano's summit shot ash and smoke into the air early Thursday on Hawaii's Big Island, and the resulting plume is expected to cover the surrounding area.

    The volcanic cloud reached 30,000 feet, the US Geological Survey said. That's a little below the cruising altitude of a jetliner. Nearby residents are being asked to shelter in place if they are in the path of the ash plume.

    Terrifying tornado leaves chaos in its wake as homes and vehicles are destroyed

    Dramatic footage shows a huge tornado ripping through a German neighbourhood leaving chaos in its wake.

    The lightening-covered storm left one driver injured and around 50 homes damaged.

    Several buildings in the Viersen district in the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia were severely damaged after the tornado swept over the region on Wednesday around 6pm.

    Stunned onlookers filmed the tornado as it swirled sand, dirt and hail in a vortex that destroyed gardens and property.

    Around 50 houses were damaged and so far there has been at least one casualty, a 23-year-old driver.

    Hawaii volcano spurts out '45kg LAVA BOMBS' after massive 1,000ft fissure opens

    A massive 1,000ft fissure has opened up on Hawaii's Kilauea volcano hurling 45kg 'lava bombs' 100ft into the air and prompting yet more evacuations.

    Helicopter footage shows the huge fissure bubbling bursts of rock and magma with an ear-piercing screech after opening up on the side of the 4,000ft-high volcano.

    Some 37 buildings have been destroyed and nearly 2,000 people ordered to evacuate since the volcano first erupted on May 3.

    A number of fissures have appeared over the past 10 days but this is among the biggest and stretches to around the quarter of the length of the hillside.

    Mark Clawson, 64, who lives uphill from the latest fissure and so far is defying an evacuation order, said: "It is a near-constant roar akin to a full-throttle 747 interspersed with deafening, earth-shattering explosions that hurtle 100-pound (45-kg) lava bombs 100 feet (30 meters) into the air."

    A unique 'weirdo asteroid' has been found in the outer reaches of the solar system - and astronomers aren't sure why it is there.

    Astronomers found that the unusual Kuiper Belt Object 2004 EW95 is a 300km wide carbon-rich asteroid, the first of its kind to be confirmed in the cold outer reaches of the Solar System.

    This curious object, a relic of the primordial Solar System, is believed to have formed in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter - but has been flung billions of kilometres from its origin to its current home in the Kuiper Belt.

    NOT GOOD! Sinkhole Opens In New Zealand Revealing 60,000-year-old Volcanic Deposit

    A massive sinkhole as deep as a six-storey building has unexpectedly opened up in a New Zealand farm - revealing a 60,000-year-old volcanic deposit.

    Experts were stunned by the size of the chasm in the Bay of Plenty, with one describing it as "pretty spectacular".

    Startling aerial footage shows the size of the massive chasm, which was first discovered by a farm

    The sinkhole is around 200 metres in length and about 30 metres wide.

    It was first discovered by a farm worker who was milking cows.

    Farm manager Colin Tremain told New Zealand TV network Newshub that he didn't realise how big it was until the Sun came up.

    BREAKING: Shocking footage shows lava bursting out of ground in Hawaii

    Ten thousand Hawaii residents have been ordered to evacuate their homes after the Big Island's Kilauea volcano erupted and began spewing lava and deadly gases into the air.

    The eruption was accompanied by a 5.0 magnitude earthquake, followed by hundreds of smaller tremors

    Warning sirens sounded across the Big Island at 4.30pm on Thursday as Hawaii County Civil Defense urged residents of Leilani Estates, in Puna, to flee the approaching lava streams.

    A 492ft fissure opened in the ground with lava flowing from it for around two hours, officials said, with magma a few feet before stopping. Geologists warned the eruption is still ongoing.

    Dangerously high levels of sulfur dioxide have also been detected in the air, which is harmful to humans if breathed in and can cause acid rain after combining with water.

    Lower Puna resident Ikaika Marzo told the Honolulu Star Advertiser that he saw 'fountains of lava' shooting 150 feet in the air and molten lava spreading down Mohala Street in Leilani Estates.
