Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano – Behind the News

There have been some pretty amazing pictures from the island of Hawaii. A volcano there, named Kilauea, has been erupting and spewing out rivers of lava which have destroyed homes and cars. It’s pretty scary stuff from a distance, so imagine what it’s like for the people who live there. We caught up with some Hawaiian locals and found out more about their fiery mountain.
