    The Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island has been erupting for 33 days.

    Hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and thousands of people displaced.

    In addition to property damage, the eruption has severed highways, knocked out power and telephone services and shut down a geothermal plant that usually provides about a quarter of the island's power.
