Hawaii volcano eruption: Earthquakes, lava flows and toxic gas could last for months, scientists warn

Hawaii volcano eruption: Earthquakes, lava flows and toxic gas could last for months, scientists warnThousands of people who were evacuated after Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano continued to erupt are preparing for the possibility they may not return home for some time. The number of houses destroyed by lava shooting from openings in the ground created by the eruption has increased to five, while hundreds of small earthquakes have continued to rumble. Scientists forecast further eruptions and earthquakes, perhaps for months to come, after Big Island was rocked by a 6.9-magnitude tremor on Friday, the strongest the island has seen since 1975.
