  • Thousands Of People Asked To Leave Homes After Hawaii Volcano Eruption In US

Some residents living near the spattering lava in Hawaii are frustrated that they're not being allowed to go home.

Elsewhere, lava spurted into the sky from cracks in the road. Two homes have been burned down.

Videos posted to social media showed homes visibly shaking, items clattering to the floor at supermarkets and waves forming in swimming pools as the 6.9 magnitude quake rattled the Big Island Friday afternoon. It came after a magnitude-5.4 natural disaster struck the same area Friday. When it appeared, she freed her chickens, loaded her dogs into her truck and evacuated with her daughter and grandson.

We will remind, on may 4 in Hawaii near the town of Pahoa began erupting Kilauea volcano.

Keala Noel, 64, also from Leilani Estates, said she didn't feel the lava was directly threatening them, but came to the shelter at 3 a.m. on Friday because of the sulfur.

When Stenback got a call from her son that the volcano had started erupting, it felt "unreal", she said. "It's hard to keep up".

"As soon like I heard the order to unfold, I caught essential paperwork, medications, my wallet - we were out of the house within a half an hour". A nearby neighborhood, Lanipuna Gardens, which has a few dozen people, also has been evacuated. "It is not possible at this time to say when and where new vents may occur". Exposure can cause irritation or burns, sore throats, runny noses, burning eyes and coughing.

She lives on a street in the rural Big Island subdivision where a volcanic vent opened up on Thursday. "It's just that roaring and unbelievable power of the lava bubbling up and spitting up into the air".

In addition to collecting legal documents and medication, Stenback said, she quickly grabbed sentimental pieces from her jewelry box and stuffed the items into the pockets of her shorts because she didn't have time to properly pack her suitcase.

"I have lived through a lot of lava flows here, but never this close before", Stenback said.




There were no immediate reports of injuries. A resident described "fountains of lava" in the community near the volcano.

Governor David Ige said residents were being housed in community centers until the danger from Kilauea has passed.

Scientists are investigating whether the earthquakes are affecting the eruption of Kilauea.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory spokeswoman Janet Babb said the earthquakes reflected the volcano adjusting to the shifting magma. Scientists say it is almost impossible to predict how long an eruption will last. "And so we are watching that very, very closely", Miklius said.

Henry Calio said the first sign that something might be wrong happened when cracks emerged in the driveway of his home in Leilani Estates. They feared they might lose the house. The collapse caused magma to push more than 10 miles downslope toward the populated southeast coastline of the island.

The magma later crossed under Highway 130, which leads to a popular volcano access point.

Authorities on Thursday ordered a mandatory evacuation of the area, home to about 1,700 people and 770 structures.

Over the decades, most of Kilauea's activity has been nonexplosive, but a 1924 eruption spewed ash and 10-ton (9-metric ton) rocks into the sky and killed one person.

The Kilauea Volcano has been active for more than 30 years and its lava flows have covered 48 square miles according to the USGS.
