Hawaii’s volcano erupts, forcing hundreds to evacuate

(Reuters) – The Kilauea volcano spewed fountains of lava into communities on Hawaii’s Big Island on Friday, forcing hundreds of people, including many retirees, to evacuate their homes, officials said on Friday.

The volcano, one of five on the island, began erupting on Thursday after a series of earthquakes over the past week, the U.S. Geological Survey reported on its website.

Residents in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens subdivisions, home to about 1,700 people, were ordered to evacuate after public works officials reported steam and lava burbling up from cracks in the road, the county’s Civil Defense said. No injuries or deaths were reported.
