Volcanic eruption and earthquake hit Hawaii

Kilauea volcano in Hawaii has erupted, destroying 26 homes and is threatening hundreds more.

Nearly 2,000 people have so far been evacuated. Some residents were allowed home to rescue pets, but authorities said it was not safe to stay.

New fissures and vents opened up on Sunday night, where lava leapt up to 70m into the air.

The island was also hit by a powerful 6.9 magnitude earthquake on Friday.

Kilauea is one of the world’s most active volcanoes and has been in constant eruption for 35 years.
