Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii's Big Island puts on a show on Friday.

State Sen. Russell Ruderman said he's experienced many earthquakes, but the magnitude-5.4 temblor that hit first "scared the heck out of me".

She said the flurry of earthquakes seemed to happen every minute. "That was kind of unsettling", Osuna told The Post, adding that it was "nerve-racking" not knowing exactly where the eruption would occur.

Small ground cracks less than a few inches wide developed Wednesday on roads near the volcano, reflecting "the buildup of stress at the surface due to magma intrusion", the U.S. Geological survey said.

Earlier Thursday, seismic activity had flagged - a good sign - but officials continued to stress that residents along Kilauea's east rift zone should continue to prepare for a possible eruption.

At least five volcanic vents have opened, Magno said, indicating that at least one home and another structure were destroyed by lava.

It's unclear how long the eruption will continue, scientists say.

Scientists also warn that the eruptions could cause unsafe levels of sulfur dioxide in the air, reports Hawaii News Now.

Besides, the USGS noted, "the opening phases of fissure eruptions are dynamic and uncertain". Although no significant lava flows have yet formed, additional outbreaks of lava, which can reach temperatures of about 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit (1,150 Celsius), were expected, the agency said. The eruption allows for further studying of the volcano.

Civil defense officials cautioned the public about high levels of sulfur dioxide near the volcano and urged vulnerable people to leave immediately. "There's a concern about looters coming into the homes after they've been evacuated, so the National Guard is assisting county police with additional resources to minimize that threat".

"This stuff could go on for a couple days, weeks or months", Stenback said.
