Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hawaii Volcano Sends Lava Bubbling, Forces 1,500 From Homes, 3 May
Hawaiian Electric Light Company crews turned off electricity in the area, and at least one business, Puna Geothermal Venture, did an emergency shutdown. An estimated 31,000 people live in the affected Puna district of Hawaii, mostly in high lava-flow hazard zones due to the presence of vents or being downslope of them.
Thursday's eruption came on the heels of a swarm of earthquakes that began Monday, including a magnitude 5.0 early Thursday.
Volcano officials couldn't predict how long Thursday's eruption may last, prompting Hawaii's governor to activate the National Guard to help with evacuations and provide security to about 770 structures left empty when residents sought shelter.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
