"A lava breakout from the south margin of the flow near the intersection of Highway 132 and Railroad Avenue has completely encircled the Green Lake cone".

Earthquakes are still rattling the summit of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, after a magnitude 5.5 quake rocked the area Sunday. according to Hawaii County Civil Defense officials.

USGS' Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said Monday that parts of the channelized flow from a fissure were starting to break out and move north.

Meanwhile, as CNN reported, a 5.5-earthquake hit the summit on Sunday, June 3, which resulted in an ash plume reaching 8,000 feet.

The United States Geographical Survey (USGS) has continued to place Kilauea volcano under red alert, meaning it is still now spewing lava.

"We understand and commiserate with our community and visitors about the prolonged closure, but we can not provide safe access to the Kīlauea section of the park as long as these very unpredictable dangers threaten the safety of park staff and visitors", said Park Superintendent Cindy Orlando. "This has led to numerous magnitude-3 or greater earthquakes, as well as many more smaller ones".

Officials say lava from Kilauea volcano destroyed hundreds of homes on the Big Island overnight.

At least 117 homes have been destroyed in the four weeks since lava began flowing, said Hawaii Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno.

Authorities will attempt to airlift individuals out of the neighborhood if the lava spreads further.

A map shared by the US Geological Survey on Twitter Saturday afternoon showed the lava flow encroaching on the community of Kapoho and MacKenzie State Park.

Lava from an erupting Hawaii volcano has destroyed more than 100 homes in a rural Big Island district.

About 7.7 square miles are covered by lava, which is about 0.2 percent of Hawaii Island, according to the USGS.

The latest upheaval of Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, comes on the heels of an eruption cycle that began in 1983 and continued nearly nonstop for 35 years, destroying more than 200 dwellings and other structures.

Kilauea, standing at 4,091 ft (1,247 metres) tall, has now been erupting for 34 days in a row, the longest since 1955.
