More than 150 homes have been destroyed by Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano.

A river of lava stretching for miles swallowed up another three dozen homes over the weekend, according to officials.

One of the homes lost belonged to Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim.

In nearby Kaphoho Bay, toxic steam with tiny particles of glass was released, as the lava hit the ocean for the second time since Kilauea began erupting last month.
