KAILUA KONA, Hawaii (AP) — Waves of orange, glowing lava and ash erupted and spewed from the world’s largest active volcano, and people on Hawaii’s Big Island were warned to be prepared if their communities were threatened. On Monday, the ongoing eruption of the Mauna Loa volcano did not immediately threaten nearby towns. But officials told residents to be prepared in the event of a worst-case scenario. The U.S. Geological Survey says the eruption began late Sunday night at the volcano on the Big Island. Scientists have been alerted by a recent spate of earthquakes at the summit of the volcano, which last erupted in 1984.
