Lava eruption from Kllauea volcano already disrupting the lives of some 1,000 people on Hawaii’s Big Island. Soon, it will likely leave many of them homeless. 

The active volcano has been spewing lava since June 27, and it has now reached a point where the hot molten rock is coming in direct contact with the residential community of Pahoa.
