Hurricane Hector heading towards Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano

Hurricane Hector heading towards Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcanoA major hurricane is cutting a path towards an active Hawaiian volcano where months of non-stop eruptions have already caused thousands to flee their homes. Scientists speculated that low-atmospheric pressure from Hurricane Hector could re-start major eruptions at the Kilauea Volcano, if it maintains its course over the southern edge of Hawaii’s Big Island. Its current trajectory puts it on collision course with the volcano which is in the midst of a three-month-long eruption that has seen lava vents open under homes on its eastern flank while its summit crater collapses.
