People of Hawaii have been running away as the Kilauea volcano, spilled lava and land fountains of toxic gases are going into the streets. The lava/volcano has already destroyed 26 homes. only a few people were allowed to go back and collect valuable items such as pets and medication during hours where the volcano was not very active. Those visits back were well timed as the night after more lava came out from fissures which are slits and holes in the earth. So far no one has died or been injured by this volcano but it had a strong magnitude of 6.9 it was has been the strongest earthquake since 1975. Most of the activity is happening in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens areas. Kilauea has one of the most active volcanoes in the world. It has been erupting constantly for 35 years. Most of their eruptions are effusive eruptions they flow continuously but don’t explode.

Understanding- I understand the effects of a volcano on the earth and the people.

Questions- I wonder how many earthquakes/volcano eruptions there have been?
