The Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island erupted on Sunday night. It sent massive plumes of steam, ash soaring into the atmosphere. The volcano erupted after a 4.4 magnitude earthquake struck near Hilo late Sunday local time. The United States Geological Survey’s Earthquake monitoring website shows that at least seven other earthquakes ranging from 2.5 to 2.7 magnitude have occurred over the previous few hours.

Residents were urged to stay indoors as steam clouded the sky and ash fell. The eruption started with multiple fissures opening on the walls of Halemaumau crater

Because of the location of the erupting lava, no homes were evacuated and there was little risk to the public.

Kilauea erupted in May 2018, destroying more than 700 homes and forcing residents to evacuate, CNN previously reported.
