The Kilauea volcano in Hawaii erupted yesterday, triggering release of lava in a residential area and evacuation orders in the neighborhood.
Though officials didn't give details of how many homes were affected, evacuation was ordered in Mohala Street, Luana Street, Pohohiki Road, Lanipuna Gardens and Leilani Estates near Pahoa town, which saw steam and lava merging from cracks.
Community shelters have been opened.
