This Is A Street in Hawaii

Hawaii County officials say the number of structures lava has destroyed on the Big Island is now 82, including about 37 homes, reports the AP. The number will surely rise: Firefighters were going door to door in the Leilani Estates urging residents to evacuate, reports CNN.

The Kilauea volcano has been erupting for three weeks now, spewing lava from cracks that emerged in neighborhoods and sending ash sky-high from its summit. Earthquakes also have been occurring, and about 2,000 people were ordered to evacuate from the rural communities where the lava fissures opened. Tourism officials say Hawaii’s Big Island has lost about $3 million for May, June, and July as major cruise lines have canceled planned stops.
