Hawaii volcano latest: Giant new fissure opens, flinging ballistic rock and lava bombs into skyA new giant fissure has opened in the Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano blasting ballistic rock and lava into the sky. Officials called for more evacuations as residents feared a potential major eruption at volcano’s summit, as Hawaii County Civil Defence issued an emergency alert after its discovery. Lava from the fissure, which measures about 1,000 feet (300 meters) long, led to an “unidentified structure” being destroyed – bringing the total number of homes and other buildings lost to the volcano to nearly 40.
