Minor explosion at Hawaii volcano spews more ash into the air

Minor explosion at Hawaii volcano spews more ash into the air(Reuters) – A small explosion at the summit of Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano shot more ash high into the atmosphere, putting communities in the southern part of the Big Island at risk, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said. The volcano, which has been erupting since early May, has sent occasional columns of ash and volcanic gas into the atmosphere at between 10,000 (3,050 meters) and 30,000 feet (9,145 meters) above sea level, it said. On Sunday, another explosion spewed ash from the volcano, creating a driving hazard for roads on parts of the Big Island.
