Hawaii's Kilauea erupts, county orders residents to evacuate

Hawaii's Kilauea erupts, county orders residents to evacuate

A short-lived plume of red or pink ash was seen over Pu'u 'O'o on Thursday following a magnitude-5 quake nearby.

Lava flows from the volcano, one of five on the island, have buried 48 square miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. "At this time, the 10:30 quake has caused no other changes at Kīlauea Volcano", HVO added.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says there have been almost 500 earthquakes in the last couple of days.

The lava outbreak has reached the Leilani Estates on the Hawaii island, forcing the County Civil Defense to issue evacuation orders to some 10,000 residents of Puna community into emergency shelter set up by the American Red Cross. Hawaii County Civil Defense is urging residents in the Puna community, home to about 10,000 residents, to get out now. One vent is called Pu'u 'Ō'ō, located on the volcano's east rift zone, and the other is located at the volcano's summit, Babb said.

Iran Not Willing to Accept Changes to Nuclear Agreement
French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday reiterated his commitment to the accord but admitted that it needed strengthening. Iran has always denied it sought a nuclear weapon, insisting its atomic programme was for civilian purposes.

Locals have been advised to prepare in case they need to evacuate.

Hawaii County spokeswoman Janet Snyder said lava emerged Thursday on Mohala Street. But most of the park remains open, according to its statement.

Hawaiʻi County's Department of Parks and Recreation have shut down the lava viewing area in Kalapana due to the proximity to the volcanic activity - and the possibility of an eruption. The series of earthquakes came after a collapse of a crater floor of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, which is a volcanic cone in the eastern rift zone of the Kīlauea Volcano.

"It has now become unnerving", Carol Shepard, a resident, told CNN affiliate KHON.

National Football League player Reid files lawsuit over anthem
Earlier in the offseason, Reid said he would stop kneeling during the anthem because the narrative around kneeling has changed. The 6-foot-1 safety totaled 67 tackles and 2 interceptions last season for the San Francisco 49ers.

This roving magma had created several small ground cracks on roads around Leilani Estates, a residential subdivision, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported. No steam has been reported from the cracks.

As it moves beneath the surface, the molten lava is breaking up rock and causing the ground to shift.

Officials have said it's impossible to predict where an eruption might happen, but areas that could be affected include Nanawele Estates, Leilani Estates and the coastal area of Kapoho.

"Should an eruption occur, residents along the East Rift Zone may have little warning", said Magno, "Residents in that area should be prepared to evacuate".
