Hawaii County authorities say the lava has now destroyed at least 117 homes, having already cut a destructive path through the residential areas of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens in the Puna district. Three people were airlifted out of an isolated area on Sunday in the Kapoho community. Some said they were staying because they had nowhere else to go, officials said.
Seven people were cited Saturday for loitering in a disaster zone, and they will have to appear in court, Hawaii officials said.
This image from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) shows shows the lava flow originating from Fissure 8 (not visible in photograph) entering Kapoho Bay on Monday.
The final phase of the evacuation was carried out late on Friday and early on Saturday by fire and police department personnel, with help from the Hawaii National Guard and public works teams, county civil defense spokeswoman Janet Snyder told Reuters by email. But the Hawaii Civil Defense Agency said the fallout will affect the volcano and Pahala areas, and cautioned about the possibility of aftershocks.

Seaside residents and boaters also have been warned to avoid noxious clouds of laze - a term combining the words "lava" and "haze". This eruption has lasted longer than the 1955 and 1924 eruptions, the USGS said.
Toxic sulfur dioxide gas emissions have created an additional hazard.
Laze is formed when hot lava hits the ocean sending hydrochloric acid and steam with tiny glass particles into the air.
There have been 500 quakes in the summit area of Kilauea in the last 24 hours, the highest rate ever measured at the summit area, according to Brian Shiro, supervisory geophysicist at the USCG Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
