Big one coming? Lava bursts from huge volcano towards homes it wrecked just two years ago
TWO massive lava flows have burst from one of the world’s most active volcanoes which destroyed part of Hawaii just two years ago.
Tuesday’s eruption of the Kilauea volcano occurred on the same side which sent residents fleeing in 2014.
Back then, the Hawaiian volcano destroyed homes and a cemetery as it ferociously flowed through the the village of Pahoa, claiming everything in its path.
The fierce flow began in June 2014 and didn’t stop until March 2015, when residents were eventually allowed to return.
The US Geological Survey’s (USGS) Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has released video footage showing the glowing red lava as it pushed through a black landscape.
Despite the terrifying footage, no evacuation warning has been put in place as yet.
A USGS spokesman said: “The initial flow activity has been vigorous, but neither flow is currently threatening any nearby communities.
“The current activity does not pose an immediate threat to nearby communities, however, a glow may be seen at night.”
The new flows are in the East Rift Zone or Pahoa section of the volcano.
Kilauea is one of five active volcanoes on Hawaii.
It has been erupting for more than 30 years on and off since 1983.
