The Hawaii Volcano Observatory reported "no significant lava flow" from a new fissure Saturday morning, but said that "conditions could change quickly". "There may not be any additional warning before the magma actually starts moving up to the surface". "Drive with extreme caution, or pull over and park". Residents of the island's eastern corner were allowed to return but told to be ready to leave "at a moment's notice".

Kilauea began erupting over a week ago.

In Pahoa, the nearest village to Kilauea, some schools remained closed after the area was hit by a 6.9 magnitude quake on Friday, the biggest since 1975.

Ige's office said Friday the declaration means federal assistance will be available as the state covers costs associated with damaged roads, public parks, schools and water pipes.

NASA's space satellites have been monitoring the eruptions and growth of lava fields at Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano, according to The Weather Channel.
