Access roads at risk, Hawaii volcano could spur more evacuations

15 May 2018

Lava flowing from giant rips in the earth on the flank of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano threatened highways yesterday. It raised the possibility that officials will order thousands more residents to evacuate before access routes are cut off.

Since the eruptions began, 37 structures have been destroyed. Officials have ordered the evacuations of nearly 2,000 people.
