Is there such a thing as volcano insurance in Hawaii?

Crack starting on Kahukai Street in Leilani Estates

Hundreds of small earthquakes continued to rumble through the area Saturday, one day after a magnitude-6.9 temblor hit - the largest natural disaster to hit Hawaii in more than 40 years.

She was also aware that one day the volcano could erupt, Sonner said, and lava could overtake the area.

Amber Makuakane Kane, 37, a teacher and single mother of two, said her three-bedroom house in Leilani Estates was across from a fissure that opened Friday.

In the video, you can see the steaming lava emerging from the underbrush, fully covering the road, and ultimately consuming a parked auto that was, unfortunately, not moved.

The lava, along with toxic gas and steam, have been bursting through fissures in the ground opened up by the volcano's eruption.

Allstate insurance agent Marc Dixon, who represents nine households in lava danger zones on the Big Island, echoed that sentiment, telling Hawaii News Now that most people wouldn't have coverage specifically relating to volcanic eruption.

Hawaii County Civil Defense administrator Talmadge Magno told CNN affiliate KHON Saturday that some first responders had been affected by the gasses on the first night when levels were particularly high - experiencing "headaches and so forth" - but that they had recovered.

Lava has spread around 387,500 square feet (36,000 square meters) surrounding the most active fissure, though the rate of movement is slow.

The Kilauea volcano has been erupting nearly continuously since 1983, according to the US Geological Survey. "You must be prepared to leave areas if required". "We had some pauses yesterday, but there's a lot of magma underground".

"Please, the residents of Leilani need your help".

Breathing large amounts of sulfur dioxide can result in burning of the nose and throat, and breathing difficulties. "You can help tremendously by staying out of the area", the Civil Defense Agency said in the update. Leilani Estates, a subdivision in the mostly rural district of Puna, is at greatest risk.

"I'm somewhat fatalistic. If it happens, it happens", he said.

The USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said Sunday afternoon that since the overnight hours, eruptions of lava from cracks in the ground have been continuous.

Cherie McArthur wondered what would become of her macadamia nut farm in Lanipuna Gardens, another evacuated neighborhood near Leilani Estates.

For people with homeowners insurance, it recommends keeping the policy in a safe place, documenting belongings with pictures or videos and removing as much from their homes as possible, because lava flow could cut off their access.

"I felt like the whole side of our hill was going to explode", she said.

Authorities have locked down the Leilani Estates neighborhood in Pahoa, more than 25 miles from the Kilauea Volcano.
