Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano creates new coastline

The lava that flowed into Kapoho Bay has created almost a mile of new land.
The fast-moving lava poured into low-lying coastal Hawaii neighbourhoods in the space of just two days this week, destroying hundreds of homes.
HVO said the lava delta is 1.2 miles wide and added that "ocean entry is sending a large laze plume into the air along the coastline".
Kilauea is the youngest and most active Hawaiian shield volcano, located on the southern part of the Island of Hawai'i, known as Big Island.
Mr Kim said it also marks Kilauea's most destructive episode in modern history.
The massive lava flow from Fissure 8 was spotted entering the ocean beyond what was once Kapoho Bay by a satellite on June 7.
"So if you combine the three of them, we're talking about 600 homes", Kim said, adding that the number doesn't account for the farmers, ranchers and their employees forced off their land and out of work.
Roughly a mile of new land formed after lava from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano spilled into a nearby bay has some wondering who the new terrain belongs to.
Given the dynamic nature of Kīlauea's lower East Rift Zone eruption, with changing vent locations, fissures starting and stopping, and varying rates of lava effusion, map details shown here are accurate as of the date/time noted. The rest of the losses have occurred in the Leilani Estates area, where the toll of destruction has been steadily rising by the day.
Scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey say they don't know when the volcanic activity will stop.
The lava is "enough to cover Manhattan 6.5 feet deep" and fill 11.3 million average dump trucks, it said.
The destruction of Vacationland was triggered by a 5.6 magnitude natural disaster that hit the summit of the Kilauea volcano.
In addition to property damage, the eruption has severed highways, knocked out power and telephone services and shut down a geothermal plant that usually provides about a quarter of the island's power.
Victoria's representative denied the rumour telling Harper's Bazaar , "This is nonsense ", when asked about the claims. In addition to their daughter, Harper , they share three other children: Brooklyn , 19, Romeo , 15, and Cruz , 13.
The tracks are actually older than any fossil of a creature with legs, so scientists are puzzled by what created the footprints. That's hundreds of millions of years before dinosaurs started roaming Earth , about 245 million years ago.
Landing skids enable takeoff from land but are presumably designed for floatation, as the Flyer is meant to be used above water. On its website , Kitty Hawk says the plan is to offer the aircraft as "part of a service similar to an airline or a rideshare".
