HAWAIAN VILLAGE PAHOA EVACUATES AS KILAUEA LAVA THREATENS

Residents of a Hawaiian village threatened by lava have begun evacuating as the flow reaches 75yds (68m) from the first house in its path.
Two roads to Pahoa have been closed and a cemetery has already been overtaken by the flow from the Kilauea volcano.
Kilauea on the Big Island has been erupting since 1983, but lava has recently burst forth from a new vent.
The town's residents will be allowed to watch the destruction of their homes, Hawaiian officials say.
The accommodation will "provide for a means of closure" Hawaii County Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira told the Associated Press news agency.
"You can only imagine the frustration as well as... despair they're going through."
Residents will also be allowed back to take photos and video for insurance purposes.

  • Many residents of the town of 800 have already left or made plans to do so, Mr Oliveira said.
  • The couple living in the house closest to the flow have evacuated but have been returning to gather belongings, he said.
