(Worthy News) - Two steam explosions occurred at the summit of the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island early Monday, seismologists said.
The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said two explosions of similar seismicity took place at 12:46 a.m. and 4:43 a.m. Seismic activity and explosions have occurred at the summit since the beginning of May.
The observatory also reported that three closely spaced lava fountains at Fissure 8 erupted with lava at heights between 115 feet and 130 feet, and volcanic gas emissions were measured to have doubled in the past two weeks. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
