The eruption has spewed out enough lava to fill 45,400 Olympic-sized pools since it started, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
Kim, who had previously said it would take a minimum of $5 million per mile to fix roads ravaged by Kilauea, said the $12 million will help Hawaii County "focus on the critical tasks of making life better for our people affected by the eruption". A plume of toxic volcanic lava haze, called laze, stretched for miles.
As the lava marched toward the bay, it vaporized Hawaii's largest freshwater lake, which was hundreds of feet deep in some places.
It won't look like the farmland that dominates that region of the Big Island anytime soon.
A small ohia tree was observed by a National Park Service employee during of a tour of a two-year-old inactive flow in Kalapana last week. "A lot of ferns will pop up first".
But the land is still highly unpredictable, and once the lava cools and hardens it will leave behind a jagged, scorched landscape with razor-sharp shards of volcanic rock.
"Our responsibility is to try to work with the community to rebuild out of harm's way", Kim said.
Scientists from the air and on the ground are trying to track existing ground cracks. "The bench that was formed during 2016 and 2017 61G flow has already collapsed and fallen into the ocean, so nobody really owns that any longer".
The latest damage appraisal from Kilauea came moments after Governor David Ige, on a visit to Hawaii County Civil Defense headquarters in Hilo, the island's biggest city, signed a memorandum of understanding furnishing $12 million in immediate state disaster relief to the island.
That latest toll of property losses from Kilauea's ongoing upheaval, which entered its 35th day on Wednesday, far surpasses the 215 structures destroyed by lava during all 35 years of the volcano's last eruption cycle, which began in 1983. There was no lava activity from the other fissures but fissures 24, 9, and 10 were billowing gases, scientists said. At the adjacent Kapoho Beach lots to the north, "just a few homes" are left standing, she added.
The current eruption burst through the ground more than a month ago in the Leilani Estates neighborhood, where fissures ripped open and lava destroyed homes and wiped out several square miles of buildings and property. They too are cut off and inaccessible.
The lava destroyed over 600 houses in Hawaii and poured in low-laying neighbourhoods of Hawaii.
