There were no eruptions overnight, but the O'Neal said the situation is still unstable.
Authorities said: "Because there may be little to no advance notice to evacuate, you should be prepared to evacuate at short notice".
USGS scientist Tina O'Neal said Friday there are continuing high levels of quake activity and ground activity that suggests magma is still close to the surface.
She said hotter, fresher and gassier magma can result in more voluminous lava flows.
The national park around Kilauea was off-limits to visitors on Friday for fear the volcano would blow its top in the coming days and hurl ash and boulders the size of refrigerators kilometres into the air.

Tina Neal, the scientist-in-charge of the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory, said geologists don't expect the summit eruption to be life-threatening so long as people stay out of the national park. The Puna Geothermal Venture plant has about 50,000 gallons (189,270 liters) of pentane. And with new fissures are opening closer to the edge of the plant, residents are getting even more anxious.
Authorities on Thursday completed the removal of highly flammable chemicals from a nearby geothermal power plant that was in the path of creeping lava.
The plant, which is owned by Ormat Technologies of Reno, Nevada, is across a highway from where lava has been erupting. And with new fissures are opening closer to the edge of the plant, residents are getting even more anxious. Some two dozen homes have burned.
A summit blast could also release steam and sulfur dioxide gas.
The small, aptly named town of Volcano, Hawaii, population 2,500, is about 3 miles from the summit.
Scientists believe the lava that has been erupting has been stored in the ground since the last eruption 63 years ago.
The USGS reports that similar explosions are likely to happen again, especially after magma migrates into the rift zones on the volcano's flanks, which seems to be occurring now.
