Last home in Hawaii's Puna district destroyed by lava flow from Kilauea volcano

According to officials, the lava flow in Hawaii has destroyed the last home in a vast but sparsely populated neighborhood in the south side of Big Island's Puna district. It was Jack Thompson, 61-year-old the last resident in the neighborhood who lost his home on Sunday, after years of destruction from lava flow of the Kilauea volcano, the Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported.

Over the years, the lava has destroyed other homes and cut off the neighborhood’s roads. The Kilauea volcano has been continuously erupting since 1983, but Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists warned several weeks ago that the lava was becoming more active.
