Hawaii Community Hangs On In Shadow Of Fiery Volcano


The novelty of the Kilauea volcano’s eruption is wearing off for Hawaii's Big Island residents living in its shadow. One 64-year-old semi-retired resident said, “It’s gotten oppressive. I'm ready for it to be over." About every 10 minutes, the fissure shoots jets of steam and smoke 20 to 30 feet in the air. Small fires burn in the distance as the lava flow continues heading toward coastal Highway 137, which is one of the last exit routes for 2,000 residents on the south side of the island. So far the eruption has destroyed 37 structures and forced nearly 2,000 people to flee homes in the lower Puna district. Conditions worsened on Thursday after an explosive eruption spewed ash 30,000 feet into the air. https://ift.tt/2rPRKqh http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
