Carol Hosley thought she’d lost everything.
A resident of Puna, Hawaii, her home and possessions were destroyed just days ago by the ongoing Kilauea volcano eruption. Worst of all, her two dogs, Brus and Little Dude, had vanished.
Ten days ago, Hosley woke up at 2 a.m. to an emergency crew banging at the door. The earth near her Leilani Estates apartment had cracked open, and the vent had started spewing black lava and sulfur dioxide gas. The firemen demanded that she evacuate immediately.
