Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano erupts, forcing hundreds to evacuate

The videos show thick smoke coming out of the Kilauea’s Pu’u ‘O’o vent on Thursday and fewer smoke on Wednesday.

The volcano, one of five on the island, erupted after a series of earthquakes over the last couple of days, including a 5.0 tremor earlier in the day, the U.S. Geological Survey reported on its website.

Residents in the Puna communities of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens subdivisions, home to about 1,700 people, were ordered to evacuate after public works officials reported steam and lava spewing from a crack, according to the county’s Civil Defense Agency.
