Lava from Kilauea volcano destroys Hawai'i County mayor's home

Lava early Tuesday destroyed Big Island Mayor Harry Kim's second home, Snyder said.
Video footage from a helicopter flying over the area showed two seaside homes engulfed in flames, as clouds of white steam and hydrochloric acid fumes billowed from the water where red-hot lava was pouring into the ocean.
The official said aerial surveillance of the area showed only the northern portion of Kapoho Beach and the southernmost "sliver" of Vacationland - the latter consisting of only about a half-dozen homes - were left unscathed. CBS News correspondent Carter Evans reported Tuesday morning that approximately 150 homes have been lost since the eruption began.
County Managing Director Wil Okabe said his own vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots is also threatened.
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. These were vacation homes and rentals, as well as primary residences.
The flow, which is a half-mile wide in parts, entered the sea Sunday night, according to the Hawaii County Civil Defense, sending large plumes of "laze" - a risky mix of steam, gas and volcanic glass - into the air.
"Looking at the map right now, Kapoho Bay is now Kapoho Point", says David Mace, a spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, who has been helping with the emergency response on the island. Lava has been fountaining from that fissure hundreds of feet into the air and volcanologists aren't sure when it will stop.
Thousands of people have been displaced, and the slow-moving nature of the event has many living in a state of agonizing uncertainty.
Lava has covered eight square miles.
It said that a series of earthquakes had rattled the island for most of Monday night and into Tuesday morning, including one with a magnitude 5.5 that generated an ash plume.
