Hawaii volcano eruption: Incredible images of Kilauea erupting seen from SPACE

"A robust plume of steam and volcanic gas, occasionally mixed with ash, has risen from the Overlook crater within Halemaumau", the Hawaii Volcano Observatory said.

This is the astronaut's-eye view of the Kilauea volcano eruption in Hawaii. Residents in both neighborhoods were ordered to evacuate in early May when fissures first began to appear, emitting lava and toxic gases.

Government officials also said that fissure No. 17, the most voluminous at about a 1,000-feet long, which claimed at least one structure, was still active on Monday, but no homes or roads were impacted.

Magma is draining out of the volcano's sinking lava pool and flowing underground tens of miles eastward before bursting to the surface on Kilauea's eastern flank in the lower Puna area.

AT&T, Novartis CEOs assailed by Elizabeth Warren, colleagues over Michael Cohen payments
Were any laws broken by either Cohen or these corporations giving money to Cohen? Unnamed sources later told CNBC that the amount could be closer to $600,000.

The Big Island tourism board estimates $5 million worth of cancellations from May through July.

Kilauea volcano is near-constantly erupting from vents either on its summit (caldera) or on the rift zones.

Tourism on the island brought in $2.5 billion in revenue a year ago.

Since May 3 when Kilauea began erupting, 19 lava-spewing fissures have opened about 25 miles from its summit, including one that tore through countryside close to houses.

Secretary of State says 'hopeful' US, Europe can strike deal over Iran
Chilean state-owned refiner ENAP has purchased 140,000 tons of Iranian crude for May loading in a rare move, according to Platts . USA investment bank Jefferies said in a note that it expects Iranian crude oil exports to start falling in the next few months.

The National Weather Service has warned residents of "light ashfall" throughout the day in the island's southernmost district after a burst of volcanic emissions.

While the United States Geological Survey is warning about the possibility of more explosive activity, NASA astronaut Drew Feustel got a safe but spectacular view of the volcano from the International Space Station.

Kilauea has been in a state of almost constant eruption for 35 years. Now, newly opened fissures are bubbling with lava nearly daily, and Hawaii County Civil Defense has warned sightseers to stay away for safety's sake. Since there was no lava, it's not considered an active fissure.

Residents from coastal communities fear the lava flow could block a dirt road, highway 137, that is their only way out after the main highway 130 was closed due to steaming cracks.

Will Iran oil sanctions advance China's 'petro-yuan'?
