Rates : 12

The “lava bomb” which injured 23 people after getting too close to molten rock pouring into the Pacific Ocean has served to highlight the ongoing danger posed by Hawaii’s erupting volcano – with the National Guard issuing fresh warnings to people living near Kilauea.
The devastating seismic forces at work have already significantly reshaped Hawaii’s Big Island, which has grown by almost 700 acres so far as a report of the outpourings of lava, equal to 500 football pitches. At the same time more than 700 homes – including a property belonging to Mayor Harry Kim – have been destroyed, with more than 2000 people evacuated so far.
