At least 22 lava fissures have opened in lower Puna, Hawaii, since a May 4 earthquake near the Kilauea volcano. This video shows activity from fissures 15, 19, and 22 in Leilani Estates, Hawaii, on May 22.
A presidential disaster declaration has been issued for the Kilauea area, according to local reports.
Hawaii News Now said rivers of lava continued to threaten homes, with eruptions also releasing dangerous gases. Lava entering the ocean was creating high levels of gas, Hawaii Civil Defense said. Credit: Andrew Hara via Storyful
