HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii's Big Island continued to experience sharp declines in visitors and tourism spending last month amid Kilauea volcano's eruption. The Hawaii Tourism Authority said Thursday the number of travelers to the island sank 12.7 percent in July compared to the same month last year. Spending by visitors declined 7.2 percent to $201 million. Lava mostly stopped flowing from the volcano early this month. It was vigorously erupting in July.
