Hawaii’s Mauna Loa erupts, officials warn people to prepare

Waves of orange, glowing lava and smoky ash erupted from the world’s largest active volcano and people living on Hawaii’s Big Island were warned to be ready if their communities are threatened. The eruption of Mauna Loa wasn’t immediately endangering towns on Monday, but officials told residents to be ready to evacuate if lava flows started heading toward populated areas. The U.S. Geological Survey says the eruption began late Sunday night in the volcano on the Big Island. The agency warned residents at risk from Mauna Loa's lava flows to review their eruption preparations. Scientists had been on alert because of a recent spike in earthquakes at the summit of the volcano, which last erupted in 1984. Read more

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says the city believes the water is safe but a boil order was required because of the drop Sunday in water pressure. Water sampling began Monday morning and the notice could be lifted by early Tuesday at the latest, once the state’s environmental agency gives an all-clear. Turner said two electrical transformers failed, causing power outages at the water plant. Read more
