Evacuees rescue valuables from Hawaii volcano lavaBy Karin Stanton PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) – Residents evacuated from homes threatened by a volcanic eruption spewing lava and gas on Hawaii’s Big Island were able to make a quick return visit on Sunday to rescue pets, medicines and essential documents. Nine homes had been destroyed, the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency said. “This is not the time for sightseeing,” the agency said on social media, urging others to stay away from the community about a dozen miles (19 km) from where the Kilauea volcano erupted on Thursday.
