Citizens are evacuating the village of Pahoa in Hawaii because of a recent volcano eruption.

According to BBC News, lava from the nearby Kilauea volcano is advancing at about five to ten yards an hour.

Two main roads into Pahoa have been shut down and a cemetery has been destroyed in the flow.

Almost all of the 800 people who live in Pahoa have already left or made plans to leave.

Officials are allowing residents to watch their houses be destroyed as a means of closure.
