"Shelter fatigue" is starting to bite in Hawaii where about 2000 people have been displaced by lava flows from the Kilauea volcano.

Many evacuees on the Big Island are living in shelters, tents and other people's homes.

The East Hawaii chapter of Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster has been helping to coordinate volunteers in shelters, including one area nicknamed tent city.

It says many aid organisations were helping like the Red Cross, Hope Services and the Salvation Army which had provided more than 20,000 meals in five weeks.
