The Kilauea volcano in Hawaii continues to ooze lava across the inner and southern parts of the big island, and into the Pacific Ocean.

The month-long eruption now covers more than 5,900-acres, a little more than nine square miles.

Lava from the volcano has destroyed 467 homes.

A 5.3-magnitude earthquake, centered in the summit region of the volcano, hit the island on Friday.

It did not cause a tsunami.
