Hawaii vol­cano erupts again

Irish Daily Mail - - World News -

HAWAII’S Ki­lauea vol­cano has erupted again, send­ing a plume of ash about 9,000 me­tres into the sky be­fore it rained down on a nearby town.

The ex­plo­sion at the sum­mit came shortly af­ter 4am yes­ter­day fol­low­ing two weeks of vol­canic ac­tiv­ity that sent lava flows into neigh­bour­hoods and de­stroyed at least 26 homes.

Sci­en­tists said the erup­tion was the most pow­er­ful in re­cent days though it prob­a­bly lasted only a few min­utes.

Ge­ol­o­gists have warned the vol­cano could be­come even more vi­o­lent.
