Beth Chapman took to her Instagram page to let her thousands of fans and followers that she and her husband, Duane Chapman, were just fine.


The announcement was made on Saturday, May 5, 2018, following the eruption of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii, where the couple currently resides.

Luckily, the natural disaster didn't take place on their island, but it forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes and caused several earthquakes in the following days, as reported by In Touch Weekly.

The Dog, The Bounty Hunter star's message was short and simple, and it was accompanied by a map of the Hawaiian Island: Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, Oahu, where the couple lives, and Hawaii, the Big Island.


"We good guys it’s not on our island. Love to everyone thanks for all the concern. Prayers for puna."

Beth drew two big arrows pointing to Oahu and the Big Island, where the volcano erupted on Thursday, May 3, to accentuate the difference between them.

But, although the famous TV couple wasn't affected by the natural disaster, the truth is that more than 1700 people had to run for their lives and 26 homes were destroyed by the molten rock.


According to officials, the homes were located in the Leilani Estates subdivision, and that the estimated number of lost properties was done after an aerial survey of the region.

The seismic event started off with only small cracks on the side of the volcano, which then turned into fissures, allowing the mountain to spew fountains of glowing hot lava up to 230 feet in the air.


Amber Makuakane, a 37-year-old teacher, and mother-of-two, is now one of the many victims who ended up on the street. She remembered seeing the steam rising in her yard but didn't find anything out of the ordinary.

On Saturday, the motion sensors installed around her house were triggered and lava surrounded her property. She lived in the house for nine years and during that time she came to accept the devastating power of the Kilauea volcano.
