"I'm good on the lava, yeah", he said. The striking aerial footage shows lava flowing indiscriminately across the Hawaiian landscape, swallowing everything in its path as more lava continues to fountain in the background.

"It's nearly like catching a football", Clinton told CNN, who interviewed him on Friday, before he was hit by a lava bomb.

Hours later, he would be in the back of a truck, on his way to meet medics in agonising pain.

He said: "I have done throughout my career I have done measurements of these volcanic gases, so I have been in these volcanic plumes". "I just can't believe it's there". Clinton seemed in good spirits, wiggling his toes and joking about how there would be less traffic when he returned home. That being said - experts are still closely monitoring Mauna Loa.

"It was incredible. It was an event of a lifetime. It was all happening at one time".


Emissions of sulphur dioxide gas, harmful if inhaled, also remained at high levels from newly opened lava-spewing fissures in the ground running through populated areas on the eastern flank of the volcano, authorities said. Days later, after several small earthquakes, the magma pushed its way back to the surface on the east side of the island's Leilani Estates neighbourhood, creating the first of many fissures to come.

Scientists in Hawaii have captured rare images of blue methane flames burning from cracks in the pavement as Kilauea volcano gushes lava in the background. It's been generating plumes of lava haze or "laze" as it interacts with seawater.

To make matters worse, there's the laze that forms when the 2,000-degree lava hits the cooler sea water, releasing a cloud of hydrochloric acid steam.


The Hawaii County Civil Defense agency warned in its latest bulletin that residents downwind of Kilauea should take care to avoid exposure to ash, which can cause eye irritation and breathing difficulties, particularly in people with respiratory problems.
