The Puna district on the Big Island of Hawaii has been being dealing with one natural event after another throughout the month of May 2018. Here's a quick rundown of what they've been experiencing:

  • 20 lava fissures opened in residential areas, destroying miles worth of land.

  • Over one thousand earthquakes, including a massive 6.9 magnitude that caused a micro tsunami.

  • Deadly levels of sulfur dioxide.

  • Volcanic ash that's contaminating water tanks.

To make matters worse, parts of that district are currently being blasted with heavy rain and lightning strikes.
