The Kilauea Volcano Erupts Again And Sends A Plume Of Ash 30,000 Feet High

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano erupted again in the early hours of Thursday morning, this time sending a plume of ash 30,000 feet into the air. According to the Associated Press, the eruption came just after 4 A.M. and resulted in ash raining down on a town nearby. Although scientists say the explosion was the most powerful recent eruption, it did not create much sound. Geologists have previously warned that impending eruptions could spew enormous boulders into the surrounding areas. Due to the health risks, the National Weather Service issued an ash advisory on Thursday and local officials have handed out ash masks. The Big Island's two largest airports remained open.
