The county has ordered evacuations for all of Leilani Estates, which according to the 2010 U.S. Census has a population of 1,500. Residents from the nearby, smaller Lanipuna Gardens Subdivision with 130 lots were also ordered out.

Hawaii Fire Department detects extremely high levels of risky Sulfur Dioxide gas near eruption. Emergency shelters opened at community centers. The Hawaii Fire Department reported "extremely high levels of unsafe sulfur dioxide gas detected in the evacuation area".

Exposure to the gas can cause irritation or burns, sore throats, runny noses, burning eyes and coughing.

Almost 1,500 residents were ordered to evacuate from their volcano-side homes after the volcano erupted and sent molten lava through forest land and bubbling up on paved streets.

Hawaiian Airlines announces that are waiving reservation change fees for guests holding tickets for travel to and from Hilo (ITO) and Kona (KOA) through Friday, May 4, 2018, due to the Kīlauea Volcano eruption.

It emphasized that the early stages of fissure eruptions are "dynamic", and "additional vents and new lava outbreaks may occur".

Because there have been reports during previous events of civilians wearing camouflage and impersonating military members to gain access to evacuated homes, the Hawaii National Guard is reminding the public that Soldiers and Airmen will be in military vehicles and carrying their military IDs.

- A series of earthquakes hit Hawaii's Big Island, where a volcano is spewing lava, on Friday.

Officials have said it's impossible to predict where an eruption might happen, but areas that could be affected include Nanawele Estates, Leilani Estates and the coastal area of Kapoho.

Ige has activated Hawaii's National Guard, and Hawaii senator Brian Schatz said on Twitter that the Federal Emergency Management Agency is mobilizing resources and is monitoring "for forest fires, power outages, and water supply disruption". Lava could be seen bubbling up on the streets in the community of Leilani Estates, 25 miles east of the volcano.

Magma found its way to the surface Thursday through cracks in the road that initially drew curiosity, and later worry, as it began to release steam and the smell of sulfur.

Using his drone, area resident Jeremiah Osuna captured video footage of the red-hot lava flow, describing it as a "curtain of fire".
