volcano explosion

Latest Hawaii volcanic explosion causes more road hazards

The U.S. Geological Survey said lava fountains from a fissure in the volcano reached as high as 55 metres over the weekend, pushing flows of molten rock into the ocean.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency said seismic activity at the crater continues with gas explosions and ash eruptions under 3,050 metres but while the eruption is never predictable, conditions appear stable for the moment.
