Mass Evacuation On Kilauea Eruption

Ngebray.com,- Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano erupted and forced 1,500 people to evacuate the area. The eruption sent lava rolling into the streets of Leilani Estates which is a subdivision where nearly 2,000 people live. Kilauea’s eruption was triggered by a series of small earthquakes earlier in the week and one 5.0-magnitude earthquake that pushed lava into new underground chambers.

 

Kilauea is situated near several small Hawaiian towns that could be affected by the latest eruption especially if lava continues to flow for weeks, or even months.
