There were 1,700 people who had to evacuate their residences due to the eruption. 
So far, there have not been any reported deaths or injuries as a result of the eruption. 
The peak of the volcano has been measured to be 1,227m above sea level. Although it appears to be part of the Mauna Loa volcano, it actually is separate, with its own vent and conduit system. It has erupted around 60 times since 1983, when it began its current cycle.
