  • Hawaii: evacuations ordered as Kilauea volcano erupts

The U.S. Geological Survey said the latest tremor at 12:32 p.m. measured 6.0, a strong magnitude capable of causing severe damage.

"There are still plumes going out".

Doctor told CNN affiliate KITV that her sons had invited friends to help her pack up. "There's a lot of glow, a lot of fires".

A Middle Tennessee native was one of the hundreds who were forced to evacuate because of the Kilauea Volcano eruption in Hawaii. "It doesn't look like it is slowing down", he said.

Hawaii County Acting Mayor Wil Okabe said the larger quake cracked a beam in a county gymnasium in Hilo, forcing workers to be sent home.

All residents of Leilani Estates, a community of about 1,700 people near the Big Island's eastern edge, and nearby Lanipuna Gardens were ordered to evacuate since the eruption took place on May 3.

"At this point, I've got what I've got on my back", she said.

"They don't really understand", she said about her children.

Scientists say Kilauea is likely to release more lava through more vents, but they're unable to forecast exactly where the lava will appear.

Ikaika Marzo told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that lava spread out over an area about 200 yards (182 metres) wide behind one house in Leilani Estates on Thursday.

Images showed lava spurting into the sky from a crack in a road and a line of lava snaking through a forest.

Mayor Harry Lim said on Twitter Sunday that an eruption information center would open in Pahoa Monday to address questions from those affected. My mother was out of portable oxygen, so that's a first concern.

Makuakane grew up within the space and lived in her home for 9 years. Seven more people were staying at another shelter. Spokeswoman Rhea Lee-Moku said power has been restored to about half of the customers, but sulfur gas levels in some areas are beyond what Hawaii Electric Light deems safe so they can not work in those places.

"This is heartbreaking", she said.

"The closest resort areas, in Kona and the Kohala Coast on the island of Hawaii's west side, are more than 100 miles away from where the lava flow is occurring and shielded by the massive mountains of Maunakea and Maunaloa".

Steve Gebbie, who owns a home in Leilani Estates, is one of those who chose to leave. Other residents also mentioned to the news network that they had heard tree branches snapping and could smell the burning bush. "I couldn't believe it. Elderly, young, and people with compromised respiratory systems are especially vulnerable".

The residents of Leilani Estates are going through a very hard time. "Please be alert and prepare now to keep your family safe", he tweeted.

As of early this afternoon, the toll of Kilauea volcano's wrath is nine destroyed houses in the rural subdivision, where at least nine active vents have been confirmed. It's in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which closed Friday and evacuated all visitors and nonemergency staff. The governor also signed an emergency proclamation, which authorizes "the expenditure of state monies as appropriated for quick and efficient relief caused by the volcanic eruption", according to the governor's office.
