"We don't have an estimate yet, but safe to say that hundreds of homes were lost in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland last night", Janet Snyder, a spokeswoman for Hawaii County, said on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT).
Authorities began evacuating the Kapoho area last week, with most residents ushered to safety by early Saturday, just hours before lava severed all road access to the region. These were vacation homes and rentals, as well as primary residences. The ocean entry has completely filled Kapoho Bay with lava, building a delta that extends 0.8 miles from shore. Lava has inundated most of Vacationland and has covered all but the northern part of Kapoho Beach Lots.
Lava flows into the Pacific Ocean in the Kapoho area, east of Pahoa, during ongoing eruptions of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii, U.S., June 4, 2018. Hundreds are now staying in emergency shelters. "Lava is entering the ocean in the Vacationland subdivision".
"He was very depressed", Okabe said of how Kim, the mayor, felt about losing his vacation home.

"This could go on for months", she said.
"Destruction from the flow is just off the scale", said Ikaika Marzo, 34, a tour operator on the Big Island who has gained a large following on social media by meticulously documenting Kilauea's eruption.
Separately, a mandatory evacuation zone remains in place for about half of lava-ravaged Leilani Estates. He said that number was sure to grow because there were many more damaged homes to count.
The two communities, comprising a quiet vacation spot once popular for its snorkeling and tide pools, sat at the edge of a small, shallow inlet called Kapoho Bay.
"The difference between our June 3rd and June 5th images are dramatic, with lava completely filling Kapoho Bay by yesterday afternoon", a spokesperson for the company said in a statement. Okabe estimated there are several hundred homes in each of the two subdivisions. "And I don't know what to do", she said.
