"It's Madam Pele's country, and we're her guests".

Check out these images from a nearby golf course Tuesday as players continued to swing it despite a massive ash cloud rising in the background.

Geologists have warned that if Kilauea erupts, the volcano could hurl ash and boulders miles into the sky.

Spectacular snaps capture lava spewing down the side of Kilauea, ash spitting from craters and plumes of smoke rising thousands of feet in the air. Tuesday's ash cloud, however impressive, was not it.

The temblor, which occurred at 8:31 a.m., had a registered depth of.4 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Some of the photos coming from Hawaii are stunning and leaving those who see them speechless.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) on Wednesday issued a red alert for the eruption of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii, which led to the evacuation of hundreds of people from the area last week. A temporary flight restriction for 12 nautical miles around Kilauea's summit has been put in place. But that didn't stop a group of golfers from playing a few holes on Tuesday.

"Ash has been rising almost continuously from the vent and drifting downwind to the southwest". "If you don't need to be out in it, don't be out in it". If the lava activity continues into the dry season wildfire potential may increase.

So far, at least 37 structures - 28 of which are homes - have been destroyed by lava that shot more than 500 feet into the air. But water may not be entering the crater, as feared, and gas and steam may be safely venting, scientists said.

A spokesperson for the Island of Hawaii Visitors Bureau told Travel Agent the volcanic activity has resulted in zero hotel closings, mainly because the resort areas are located far from the Kilauea area. (The most recent one opened on Tuesday.) The air quality is deemed unsafe to health in some areas due to the release of sulfur dioxide from the fissures.

Scorching lava has already swallowed dozens of homes and vehicles.
