Reports confirmed that hundreds are left homeless, and everything around the area has been destroyed.

The Article from Satellite images confirm the intensity of devastation caused by Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii: A river of hot lava fills up an entire ocean bay.

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area Wednesday with the force of a 5.4 magnitude natural disaster and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level. Sitting above an active lava lake, the erupting Kilauea has now covered almost 8 square miles of land with molten rock, with ash plumes rising overhead to 30,000 feet high.

So too have airborne volcanic glass fibers, called "Pele's Hair", wispy strands carried aloft by the wind from lava fountains and named for the volcanic goddess of Hawaiian myth.

Depending on climate, rainfall and other variables, new vegetation could start growing soon, but it would take much longer for the fertile land and lush rainforests to build back up.

But the land is still highly unpredictable, and once the lava cools and hardens it will leave behind a jagged, scorched landscape with razor-sharp shards of volcanic rock.

People that have private property in the affected areas will still own their land, though it will need to be reassessed once the lava stops flowing.

The current eruption burst through the ground more than a month ago in the Leilani Estates neighborhood, where fissures ripped open and lava destroyed homes and wiped out several square miles of buildings and property.

The lava destroyed over 600 houses in Hawaii and poured in low-laying neighbourhoods of Hawaii.
