RISING FROM THE VOG… Leilani Estates Eruption 2018 Residents return to get their pets

A line of traffic is seen going towards Pahoa town, Sunday, May 6, 2018, near Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists reported lava spewing more than 200 feet (61 meters) into the air in Hawaii’s recent Kilauea volcanic eruption, and some of the more than 1,700 people who evacuated prepared for the possibility they may not return for quite some time.

May 6, 2018 7 am cars lined the street hoping for a chance to retrieve their animals and belongings. “Lookie Loos” lined up also at the gateway entrance to the homes that have been evacuated since May 3, 2018.

As the morning progressed into lunch time, so did the lines. Growing ever longer down both sides of the highway. Residents patiently waiting their turn to go to their homes. The County and Police notified everyone in the lines that “RESIDENTS ONLY” would be allowed in. The lines slimmed down a bit, but continued till 6pm when all residents had to leave the area for mandatory curfew.

Hawaii Volcano Eruption Update – Sunday Morning (May 6, 2018)

A few minutes prior to curfew the Civil Defense put out “EMERGENCY BROADCAST” to ALL Leilani Estates residents to “GO NOW”. CDC did not say why, but I am assuming it was the Sulfur Dioxide Levels, possibly to high for human safety.

Leilani Estates eruption area should had been restricted to residents only or escorted by residents ONLY. What took them so long to come to that realization. The residents are still evacuating. Some Residents that were able to get to their homes today, came back to their homes that had been broken into and things were stolen.

The residents have had people approach them and TRESPASS on their property asking if they could look at the lava and take pictures.. Disrespecting the property owners who are mourning the loss of their homes, property and possibly animals… All for a photo opportunity that will make the trespassers money and famous for a second.
