Hawaii volcano eruption latest: Families flee as rivers of lava from Mount Kilauea engulf entire neighbourhoods

People in Hawaii forced to flee a volcanic eruption that has destroyed dozens of homes and other buildings have taken advantage of a brief respite in its activity to rescue their pets and belongings.

Rivers of lava from Kilauea have already accounted for entire neighbourhoods, and those of the 1,700 evacuees from the Leilani Estates neighbourhood on Big Island who returned home during the lull on Sunday and Monday to retrieve animals, medication and important possessions were warned to be prepared to flee at any moment.

Residents of a second area, Lanipuna Gardens, were barred from returning home on Monday due to the risk of deadly sulphur dioxide gas.
