In the meantime, fewer workers are needed to staff a 24-hour operations center and officials are reducing checkpoints, Magno said.

There was "not a lot of change" to the lava flow, said Janet Babb, a geologist with the USGS' Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

The U.S. Geological Survey said lava fountains from a fissure in the volcano reached as high as 55 metres over the weekend, pushing flows of molten rock into the ocean.

Fissure 8 continues to produce a large channelized flow that is entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay and producing a large laze plume, civil defense reported Sunday morning. It is flowing toward a community that got wiped out last week. Magno says additional workers can be called in if conditions change.

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.

Kilauea volcano is near-constantly erupting from vents either on its summit (caldera) or on the rift zones.

Scientists say the blasts happened Monday, including one after a magnitude-5.4 quake.

Kilauea has been erupting since the start of May, with the resulting lava flow destroying hundreds of buildings. Fallout from the fountains has built an asymmetric cinder-and-spatter cone around the vent, with the southwest side of the cone slightly higher (about 115 feet) than the northeast side (about 65 feet).

Scientists warn against venturing too close to lava hitting water, saying it could expose people to dangers from flying debris.
