In this May 19, 2018 photo, lava from Kilauea volcano can be seen lighting the night sky from Kapoho resident Mark Johnson's citrus farm near Pahoa, Hawaii. Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano destroyed hundreds more homes in the Kapoho and Vacationland neighborhoods overnight, inundating two oceanfront communities that were advised to evacuate last week, officials said Tuesday, June 5. Johnson evacuated from the neighborhood last week as the lava approached, and now most of his neighborhood has been covered by the lava flow. Johnson doesn't know if his home and farm, which sits on a small hill, survived the lava flow and he has no access to his property. (AP Photo/Caleb Jones)
