Kilauea, Hawaii's most active volcano, has been spewing lava, which is moving toward a residential area and forcing the evacuation of hundreds of residents. We get the latest on the activity. Also, ocular melanoma is a rare eye cancer that typically affects 6 out of every 1 million people. But doctors have found dozens of cases where those affected have ties to either Huntersville, North Carolina, or Auburn, Alabama — or both cities. We speak with an oncologist about this seemingly unusual number of cases. And, the price of oil has been climbing, despite record-high U.S. production this year. We speak with an energy market analyst about what's causing oil prices to go up. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's May 4, 2018 full broadcast.
