Fountain Of Lava Erupts At Hawaiian Man’s Backyard (VIDEO)
This gives whole new meaning to the “floor is lava” as a man returned home to discover that a fountain of lava just erupted outside his backyard. So scary!
Hawaii resident Keith Brook returned home to find a fountain of lava erupting from a fissure across from his backyard in the Leilani Estates neighborhood on May 6.
At least 26 homes in the Leilani Estates area of the Big Island have been destroyed by lava flows after a dozen vents opened following the eruption of the Kilauea volcano and a 6.9 magnitude earthquake on May 4. The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency reported the appearance of 12 fissures in the Leilani region as of May 7. Brook said he has seen new hills and bumps rise on the ground of his once “flat” neighborhood following the earthquake and eruption. (Via Storyful)
