Many are still waiting for money from Hawai'i County -- including a man who was cut off from what was supposed to be his retirement home.

VOLCANO, Hawaii (KITV4) -- A huge lake with spewing lava from Kilauea formed right outside Victor Hoapili's home in 2018.

Hoapili said he's owed about $130,000 from a Hawaii County disaster recovery program that is helping to buy out homes of those impacted by the eruption.
