Hawaii volcano Kilauea's trail of burning destruction spreads

Hawaii: evacuations ordered as Kilauea volcano erupts

The spewing of lava from Kilauea volcano in Hawaii's Big Island showed no signs of stopping as 21 homes have been destroyed in the aftermath of the eruption in Leilani Estates, Hawaii County officials said on Sunday.

"As a realtor, I can tell you that people move here thinking it's paradise, and what they learn is that it's something different", said Jessica Gauthier, 47, who sells properties and manages vacation rentals on the Big Island.

Gabbard said more than 1,800 residents in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens have been ordered to leave their homes since Thursday, when public works officials first reported steam and lava erupting from fissures in a road.

In revised figures, Hawaii County officials said another four unspecified structures were covered by lava.

As Mary Binkley was evacuating, she found herself in awe, but also scared.

Amber Makuakane, 37, a trainer and single mom of two, mentioned her three-bedroom home in Leilani Estates was destroyed by lava.

On Saturday, she acquired alerts from her safety system that movement sensors all through the home had been triggered.

Trump Casts Doubt on Mueller Interview, Denies Change on Daniels
Mr Trump's irritation was plain when reporters reminded him of his previous denial. He called it "a nuisance payment" rather than "a settlement".

That brings the total of fissures to 10 since the eruption began late Thursday afternoon, but a scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey says one of those vents has gone dormant.

The activity will continue, Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno said Friday.

The American Red Cross has opened two shelters at the Pahoa and Keaau Community Centres, where some evacuees have gathered while they await news about their homes.

Local government officials said if conditions permit, residents in Leilani Estates, the neighborhood where the eruptions have been occurring, would be allowed to enter the neighborhood to complete the evacuation of pets, medicine and key documents, but only during daylight hours.

One of the world's most active volcanoes, Kilauea has been erupting almost continuously since 1983. Leilani Estates sits along the zone.

Area residents have dealt with eruptions of the Kilauea volcano since 1983, according to the AP.

The crater flooring started to break down Monday, triggering earthquakes and pushing lava into new underground chambers that carried it towards Leilani Estates and close by communities.

Blast kills 5 people in central Gaza Strip
The Israeli army fears a mass push of thousands of protesters to break through the Gaza border fence and cross into Israel. The protests are due to continue until mid-May, when the U.S. plans to move its embassy.

This comes as the island was rocked by a 6.9 magnitude tremor on Friday, the strongest on the island since 1975.

It set Michael McGuire's vehicle rocking in his driveway, knocking things off his shelves and shattering glass in his cabinets in an area near Leilani Estates.

Lava was about 1,000 yards from her home, which Woolsey built on a lot purchased for $35,000 11 years ago after living on Maui became too expensive.

"It was a moment of panic", she said, "because the only thing I knew was, 'lava in Leilani'".

"I felt like the whole side of our hill was going to explode", she said. "That is one in every of them".

Retreat owners Noah and Laura Dawn told The Associated Press that they were planning to relocate up the coast indefinitely.

"We're simply eradicating all issues of worth to us and treasured issues as a result of I've the sensation it might get actual - actual, actual quick", Noah Daybreak mentioned.
