Kilauea volcano, which has been erupting continuously since 1983 and is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, has shown signs of increased activity over the past week, which led to hundreds of small earthquakes. The seismicity on the lower east rift zone had declined and the tilt had slowed down so that indicates that the intrusion has stalled or paused. About 1,800 residents of Leilani Estates and neighboring Lanipuna Gardens remain under evacuation orders.

Earthquakes were reported on Friday, including a 6.9 magnitude temblor, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

"A collapse of the Pu'u" "O'o crater floor Monday afternoon on Kilauea Volcano's East Rift Zone has prompted an increase in seismicity and deformation along a large section of the rift neon, with seismicity now occurring as far east as Hwy 130". Activity along the East Rift Zone has shifted down and then back up the rift, said CNN meteorologist Michael Guy.

Some people who evacuated will be allowed to return to pick up pets, medicine and vital documents, officials said.

An observatory spokesperson said a deflationary tilt at the summit of the volcano continued and the level of the lava lake was still dropping. "You must be prepared to leave areas if required", it said in a statement.

Traffic backups on Highways 130 and 132 are due to Leilani resident-only screening. This is not the time for sightseeing.

"Due to the panic and the unknown nature of what was happening.and just the little bit of knowledge I had of the gases that are released when the volcano vents, I chose to leave", Sonner explained.

Officials said molten rock, toxic gas and steam have been bursting through openings in the ground created by the volcano. The gas can cause skin irritations and breathing difficulties.

The volcanologist declared: "The gases can cause quite a bit of respiratory distress as well as irritation of the eyes especially if people already have respiratory issues like asthma". She's staying at a cabin with her daughter's in-laws.

Hawaii's governor activated the National Guard to help with evacuations and provide security for about 770 buildings left empty when residents sought shelter. The contents of the crater seeped into a network of underground channels and flowed downhill - and on Thursday started gushing out of cracks that had opened in Leilani Estates.

Lava eventually covered her property. A short lava flow erupted from the fissure around 8 a.m. Saturday, moving northeast and crossing Hookupu Street, they said.

Though residents are anxious and sad, Sonner said she understands the reality of the situation.

Sonner was at work this week when she heard that lava had erupted in her neighborhood. "And I'm enjoying life here, so you know, you put up with a lot of things here".

After Hawaii's false ballistic missile alert in January, Sonner realized she didn't have an emergency plan.

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