Hawaii Erupts

Wow.

An explosive eruption at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has sent ash thousands of metres into the sky.

The US Geological Survey said the eruption took place at 05:00 local time (15:00 GMT).

Staff at the volcano observatory and the national park had been previously evacuated.

Since a new zone of Mount Kilauea began erupting almost two weeks ago, lava has wrecked dozens of homes and forced hundreds of people to be evacuated.

A red aviation code had already been issued – warning pilots to avoid the potentially damaging ash cloud.
