Video: The latest from Hawaii and the Kilauea volcano

Video: The latest from Hawaii and the Kilauea volcano (CNN)

No end in sight for people living around Hawaii's Kilauea volcano.

Lava flows, earthquakes and ashfalls are just some of the threats they're facing.

Late Saturday night, an active flow entered the Pacific Ocean and created a new threat -- "laze." It's formed when hot lava hits the ocean. It sends hydrochloric acid and steam with fine glass particles into the air and it is hazardous.

Laze can cause lung, eye, and skin irritation.

There was also a magnitude five earthquake on the Big Island Saturday evening.

And around midnight local time, a small explosion from the Halemaumau crater created an ash cloud that reached up to 10,000 feet.
