Nine fissure eruptions were reported at Leilani Estates, near Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, late on Sunday, May 6, two days after a magnitude-6.9 earthquake hit the area. Some 1,800 residents in the local communities of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens were under an evacuation order. At least 26 homes had been destroyed by Sunday evening, the Star Advertiser said.
