Hundreds of homes on Hawaii's Big Island have been destroyed from lava oozing from the Kilaueavolcano after an early morning explosion on Tuesday, according to officials.
A slow-moving flood of lava destroyed hundreds of homes in the southeast area of Big Island, turning what had been a scenic bay dotted with beach homes, lush greens and turquoise waters, into a dark slab of steam and lava.
Authorities began evacuating the greater Kapoho area last week and ushered most of the last remaining residents to safety early on Saturday, hours before the lava flow severed all road access to the region. County Managing Director Wil Okabe says his vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots is also threatened.
Lava has now covered about 7.7 square miles of the roughly 4,000 square mile island, according to the USGS.
Vivian Mark, a resident of Hilo who owns a beachfront vacation rental in Vacationland and is president of the Vacationland Hawaii Community Association, said Vacationland consisted of 240 housing lots and almost 90 farm lots, but she was unsure how many of those had properties built on them.

No injuries were reported in relation to the lava flowing from the volcano. Thousands of people have been evacuated from the area.
Snyder said it was hard to count homes in that area from the air because of steam produced from lava entering the ocean. Officials had issued mandatory orders for residents of Leilani Estates and those in Kapoho Beach and Vacationland were advised to leave by last Friday or risk being trapped and unreachable by emergency crews. Okabe estimated there are several hundred homes in each of the two subdivisions.
