Scientists WARNS Of New Blasts From The Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii / May 23, 2018
======================================================================
Kilauea, the volcano in Hawaii that began erupting almost three weeks ago, exploded again Tuesday evening and the lava flow from one of its fissures was threatening a geothermal plant, authorities said. The latest eruption occurred around 5:51 p.m. local time, according to the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency, citing a report from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
The 1,100-degree lava was gushing from multiple fissures and sending methane gas and flames shooting up through numerous cracks in the ground and sparking brush fires. Magma was gurgling out of the some of the fissures on the east rift of the Kilauea volcano at more than 3,500 cubic feet per second, forming a roaring red-hot river 4-miles long to the Pacific Ocean.
