NEW VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS started in HAWAII , Evacuation of residents are in progress.

At least five homes have been destroyed after the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island erupted, spewing molten rocks and high levels of sulfur dioxide into neighborhoods.

The eruption drove hundreds of people from their homes Thursday. It was followed by a magnitude 6.9-magnitude quake Friday -- the most powerful on the island since 1975, the US Geological Survey said.

At least eight volcanic vents have opened in Leilani Estates, according to the USGS.

    All residents of Leilani Estates, a community of about 1,700 people near the Big Island's eastern edge, and nearby Lanipuna Gardens have been ordered to evacuate.
