PUNA, BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - At least eight public school teachers on the Big Island were impacted by the ongoing eruptions at Kilauea's lower east rift zone, according to the Hawaii State Teachers Association.
The HSTA posted links to six GoFundMe pages to help them recover from lava damage.
The victims include Amber Makuakane, the single mother of two who recently became a widow, and a husband-and-wife duo who moved to Hawaii from the St. Louis area just two years ago.
Their GoFundMe pages show some before and after photos of how the lava disaster affected their homes in lower Puna.
