Hawaii volcano: Mount Kilauea erupts sending fountains of lava into residential areas | The Independent

Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has erupted, local officials say, releasing flows of red lava into residential areas and prompting immediate and mandatory evacuations.

Residents said they saw “fountains” of lava rising up to 150 feet (45m) into the air, and images shared on social media showed a plume of red ash rising from the volcano’s Puu  Oo vent high into the sky over the state’s Big Island.

“It sounds like a jet engine. It’s going hard,”resident Ikaika Marzo told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Residents in the Puna community, home to about 10,000 people, were ordered to evacuate after public works officials reported steam and lava emissions from a crack,

Scientists said areas downslope of the erupting vent were at risk of being covered by lava. Leilani Estates, home to about 1,500 people, appeared to be at greatest risk, but scientists said new vents and outbreaks could occur and it’s not possible to say where.

The eruption came after days of earthquakes rattled the area’s Puna district, including a 5.0 tremor at about 10.30 am on Thursday, the US Geological Survey (USGS) reported on its website.
