The Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island has erupted, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.
The eruption began late on Sunday within the Halema’uma’u crate located within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
A magnitude 4.4 earthquake hit about an hour after the volcano began erupting.
The USGS said it received more than 500 reports of people who felt the earthquake but significant damage to buildings or structures was not expected. by Evening Standard
