(Worthy News) - Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano continues to reshape the Big Island with an unceasing flow of lava in the Eastern Rift Zone that has destroyed hundreds of structures and recently erased the island's largest lake.
Flows of lava march all the way down to the Pacific Ocean where they are currently filling in Kapoho Bay and remaking the coastline.
Meanwhile, at the volcano's summit, located inland in the heart of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, earthquake activity has been intensifying in recent days, including a 5.5 magnitude temblor Monday and a 5.6 magnitude early Tuesday. The Hawaii County Civil Defense Authority reports there is no threat of a tsunami from the earthquakes as of Tuesday morning, however roads and buildings in the National Park have been damaged by the quakes.
