(From BBC News)
A number of strong earthquakes have hit Hawaii’s Big Island, a day after the eruption of the Kilauea volcano.
One 6.9 magnitude quake, south-east of the volcano, was the most powerful to hit the US state since 1975.
It briefly cut power and sent people fleeing from buildings but there was no tsunami warning.
Meanwhile, several fresh eruptions spewed fountains of lava 30m (100ft), destroying several homes and leaving fissures on three streets.
The Civil Defense Agency told any remaining residents to evacuate.
