Hawaii Volcano Erupts

(AP) – About 1,500 Hawaii residents have been ordered to evacuate after Kilauea Volcano erupted Thursday.

The Big Island volcano sent molten lava chewing its way through forest land and bubbling up on paved streets. Hawaii County officials says steam and lava poured out of a crack in Leilani Estates, which is near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island.

Officials can’t predict how long the eruption may last.

Hawaii’s governor activated the state National Guard to help with evacuations and provide security to about 770 structures left empty when residents sought shelter.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.
