New signs of vol­cano erup­tion

China Daily - - WORLD -

“Bal­lis­tic blocks” the size of mi­crowave ovens shot from Hawaii’s Ki­lauea vol­cano on Wed­nes­day in what may be the start of ex­plo­sive erup­tions that could spew huge ash plumes and hurl smaller rocks for kilo­me­ters, the US Ge­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey said. Such erup­tions, last seen nearly a cen­tury ago, have been a loom­ing threat since Ki­lauea, one of the world’s most ac­tive vol­ca­noes, erupted nearly two weeks ago.
