The United States Geological Survey released stunning new footage on Saturday showing the lava pouring from a fissure created by activity around Kilauea, an active volcano in Hawaii that exploded Thursday morning. The footage, which was filmed just before 8:00 a.m. Hawaii local time shows a powerful lava flow tearing its way across the island, dangerously close to multiple structures. SEE ALSO: Hawaii's Kilauea volcano just exploded According to the USGS, the flow is advancing southeast, and it originated from a line of low fountains, which can be seen in the background of the clip. A status report from the USGS states that the rate of lava eruption in the lower east rift zone increased on Friday and continued overnight. As of Saturday morning, the flow remained "very active" and was moving at speeds of up to 300 yards per hour. "It is unknown whether the flows will continue to advance, or stop, and new lava flows are likely given the rate of activity seen at the rift zone," the report ominously states. An eruption also occurred Friday night at Halema'uma'u, the crater in the middle of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The plume extended to 10,000 ft, and left "noticeable ashfall" was reported downwind in the southwest direction. The report also notes that ground cracks and lava outbreaks are still possible in the area. WATCH: Exploring volcanoes with robots: a day in the life of Carolyn Parcheta

In a speech to his party later Saturday, Tsipras said the countries were “closer than ever before” to a solution.
