Hawaii volcano unleashes more small blasts, snaking lava
June 11, 2018 by Jennifer Sinco Kelleher
Small explosions at the summit of an erupting Hawaii volcano could send ash into communities.
Scientists say the blasts happened Monday, including one after a magnitude-5.4 earthquake. Ash expelled from the Kilauea volcano may cause poor visibility and slippery conditions for drivers.

Scientists warn against venturing too close to lava hitting water, saying it could expose people to dangers from flying debris.
