The latest volcanic eruption, which entered its 36th day on Thursday, stands as the most destructive in the United States since at least the cataclysmic 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington state that reduced hundreds of square miles to wasteland, according to geologist Scott Rowland, a volcano specialist from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

A Hawaii volcano continues to erupt from a vent in a Big Island community, sending a stream of lava toward the ocean. There was no lava activity from the other fissures but fissures 24, 9, and 10 were billowing gases, scientists said. Phil Ong compares this to the 35 years long eruption that had been going on at Pu'u O'o prior to the start of this eruption, and notices that although the eruption rate is about 25 times higher, is not almost a match to the ca.

The lava is "enough to cover Manhattan 6.5 feet deep" and fill 11.3 million average dump trucks, it said.
