"A lot of, 'What now?'" said Big Island Mayor Harry Kim, who spoke at a news conference Monday.

"The ocean entry is a hazardous area".

The lava is also flowing into the ocean, where it has created about 200 acres of new land, while also releasing unsafe gas plumes and causing explosions as the molten rock hits the cold water.

"There is no magic wand for this event", said Robert Fenton, a FEMA administrator.

Officials are transitioning to recovery efforts, with help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is starting to do damage assessments, Magno said. USGS scientists have been unable to determine when the eruptions will end.

PAHOA The mighty fissure 8 in Leilani Estates continued to make Hawaii island a little bigger Saturday, pumping lava that stayed for the most part in a stream-like channel exiting into the ocean about 8 miles away near the island's eastern tip.

Because tradewind conditions returned, vog was projected to carry to the south and west sides of the island, while plumes of noxious gas coming out of the ocean around the new Kapoho coastline were pushing those emissions south, farther out over the ocean.

Many people whose homes have been destroyed don't have insurance, and FEMA officials are working with local authorities to get disaster assistance to those who qualify. There were two small blasts Monday, including one after a magnitude-5.4 quake, scientists said.

Those earthquakes have continued near the summit, according to Jim Kauahikaua, a geophysicist with the US Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. But the unit has been broken since Thursday.

Another ongoing hazard comes from lava meeting the ocean.
