Transcript for New eruption from the summit of Kilauea puts dozens more homes in danger
From Hawaii a new eruption from kilauea overnight. The wind carrying ash towards several more neighborhoods. It comes as lava is still pouring out from the 22 cracks in the Earth threatening dozens of homes and Marci Gonzalez is on the big island tonight. Reporter: Tonight, raging rivers of molten rock destroying four more homes. It's incredible. It's a once in a lifetime experience. Reporter: The fast-moving lava flow covering a roadway trapping several people on the other side. Rescuers forced to go in by helicopter to pull them to safety. 22 fissures have now opened here in this corner of Hawaii's big island in the past two weeks. This is one of the latest fissures to open and it is just incredible to see this massive fountain. The Earth underneath just pulsating. Some open yet again. And this is fissure number 17. It's been the most active spraying lava like this now for almost a week and that hissing, roaring and the burns coming from this thing can be heard for miles. 25 miles away at the summit of kilauea yet another explosive eruption overnight like this one, spraying ash 7,000 feet into the air. I am thinking that this is the new norm. Reporter: Residents ready for the potential this volcanic emergency may not end for weeks. And they're bracing for the possibility of more evacuations as the lava spreads. Officials are also monitoring the sulfur dioxide levels concerned if the winds shift those toxic fumes could be carried to more populated areas.
