(Worthy News) - Up to 10,000 people have been asked to leave their homes on Hawaii's Big Island following the eruption of the Kilauea volcano on Thursday (May 4) that came after a series of recent earthquakes.
Authorities ordered mandatory evacuation in Leilani Estates in the east of the island after lava spewed more than 30m in the air near several homes, said Hawaii News Now.
"Department of Public Works reports steam and lava emissions from a crack in Leilani Subdivision in the area of Mohala Street," the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency wrote in a Facebook post. [ Source: Channel News Asia (Read More...) ]
