pahoa - Due to the eruption of the volcano Kīlauea about 600 houses have been destroyed in Hawaii. Never before have so many homes been swept away by the volcano in such a short time, said Mayor Harry Kim of Hawaii County.

Previous estimates were based on some 130 destroyed homes, but advancing lava flows have swallowed hundreds of houses in a matter of days. Mayor Kim said that around 600 families have lost their homes in the Kapoho, Vacationland and Leilani areas. 'And do not forget the farmers, the ranchers and their employees. '

The authorities have evacuated about 2500 people since the beginning of the volcanic eruption, more than a month ago. The authorities are launching a task force to prepare a recovery plan for the badly hit communities, Kim and Governor David Ige announced.
