Many of these people were living very ERE/MMM-style lives before the eruptions started.  Hope they are able to get back on their feet soon....

My cousin grew up in Pahoa, and my best friend's ex-husband's family is all from there as well. I can't imagine living so close to a volcano with that risk always there, but you're right, many of them lived very simply and frugally there. It's been sad reading some of their stories.

The people in the article aren't ERE or Mustachian.

They're just poor.
