Hundreds of residents on Hawaii's Big Island had to leave their homes after the Kilauea volcano erupted. After a series of tremors over the course of days, the volcano burst into life, spewing ash and lava into residential areas.
After a query on Twitter, the US Geological Survey has been forced to warn against roasting the spongy sweets over lava spewing vents in Hawaii. The island's largest volcano, Kilauea, has been erupting since early May.
Officials have not reduced the warning level and a 4-kilometer danger zone remains in place around the crater. But the tens of thousands of travelers left stranded are able to leave the island.
Lava from the erupting Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island has now blocked a highway and entered the ocean, officials said. A man was also seriously injured after his leg was struck by lava.
What would a volcano have to do for you to pack up and leave the home you'd raised your family in? A woman writes DW from Hawaii and tells her story.
