USA: Kilauea spews lava as volcanic eruptions continue

United States, Kilauea Volcano In Hawaii
May 20, 2018 at 10:31 GMT -00:00 · Published

New eruptions at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano have produced fresh lava flows, from fissure 20 in the Puna district, as seen in footage filmed on Saturday.

The first serious injury due to the lava was reported on Sunday, when a man was hit on the leg by molten rock while in his house.

Two neighbourhoods and nearly 2,000 people have already been evacuated, while the increasing volume of lava flows and toxic gases spewing from open fissures are raising fears that more residential areas could become affected.

The Kilauea volcano erupted on May 3 and there is no indication yet as to when the explosive eruptions might end.

Las nuevas erupciones en el volcán Kilauea de Hawái han originado nuevos ríos de lava, como se puede ver en las imágenes publicadas el sábado.

El río de lava avanza a gran velocidad y ha aislado a al menos 40 hogares. Cerca de 2.000 personas ya han sido evacuadas. Hay temores de que la lava pueda invadir las zonas residenciales afectadas por las erupciones previas.

Donald Trump calificó el pasado viernes la situación como un “gran desastre”. Las autoridades han aconsejado a los residentes locales que se refugien para evitar el contacto con la ceniza.

El Kilauea es uno de los volcanes más activos del mundo.
