Hawaii volcano: 6.9 magnitude earthquake follows eruption
The Civil Defense Agency said there were fissures on three streets and told any remaining residents to evacuate.
It said there were deadly levels of dangerous sulphur dioxide gas in the air and emergency crews would not be able to help anyone affected.
The new activity comes a day after Kilauea volcano erupted.
A number of increasingly strong earthquakes rocked the area after the eruption, with a 6.9 magnitude quake reportedly occurring south of the volcano. ■
