Ocean, jungle explosions new risks from Hawaii eruption

23 May 2018

Lava from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano is exploding as it pours into the ocean. Inland methane explosions are hurling boulders while toxic gas is reaching some of the highest levels seen in recent times. Lava edged towards a geothermal power plant on Tuesday after destroying an old warehouse near the facility, County of Hawaii Civil Defense said. Geologists warned of yesterday as Kilauea's 19-day eruption showed no sign of easing.
