The Hawaii Army National Guard released aerial footage of lava flowing from the Kilauea volcano on Saturday (June 16).

Kilauea's eruption began around six weeks ago, devastating Hawaii's Big Island. The volcano has destroyed hundreds of houses and has caused the evacuation of entire communities.

The footage shows lava rivers breaking into various streams, some ending by pouring into the nearby sea.

The lava flowing into the sea, near the bottom of Halekamahina Hill, produces a towering plume of steam and hydrochloric acid rain called "laze," a term combining lava and haze.

An estimated 450 to 600 homes have been destroyed so far, the largest number to be destroyed by a volcano in Hawaii's modern history.

Saturday marked the 45th day of Kilauea's eruption.

Around two dozen fissures have opened on the volcano's flanks since it started, and experts say so far, there is no end in sight.
