The number of lava-shooting Hawaiian ground fissures climbed to 18 Sunday, forcing more residents on the state’s Big Island to flee their homes.

Scientists have warned in recent days that more eruptions could eventually cause the Kilauea volcano’s summit to blast —blanketing the region in ash and sending massive boulders into the sky.

Roughly 2,000 residents have been displaced in the Leilani Estates area since volcanic activity began in the rural Puna district more than a week ago.
