Lava bomb injures 23 people on Hawaiian tour boat

Lava Expands Hawaii’s Landmass

His boat was not involved in Monday's incident off the coast of the Big Island, which seriously injured a woman in her 20s.

"As we were exiting the zone, all of a sudden everything around us exploded", he said.

Salespeople for helicopter lava tour companies Blue Hawaiian Helicopters and Paradise Helicopters said it was business as usual on Tuesday and they had seen no cancellations.

Vessels are usually prohibited from getting closer than 984 feet (300 meters) from where the lava meets the sea.

"During this morning's overflight, HVO's (Hawaii Volcano Observatory) field crew noticed the island was oozing lava similar to the lava oozing from the broad flow front along the coastline", the USGS noted.

In a flow that reached the ocean in 2016, the lava "hit a steep slope and was very quickly carried down to deeper parts of the ocean", Babb said.

Los Angeles Lakers' Josh Hart named Summer League MVP
With only 4:45 left in the fourth quarter, Summer League MVP Hart was ejected from the game for scrutinizing the officials. Now that the winning teams have got their due, let's take a look at the players who shined through the Summer League.

The eruption of Kilauea in may this year has caused significant damage to the island, with more than 20 fissures in the area surrounding the mountain appearing.

Monday's large blast may have been amplified by the relatively shallow water at the point where the lava entered the sea. That is because explosions occur much closer to the surface in such spots. "My recollection is we were around 200 meters from the flow".

"Once we get the confirmation on that it will be released", she said by phone. A collapse explosion event, which is measured in natural disaster magnitude, caused an increase of activity from fissure 8 resulting in some channel overflows, USGS said.

"There's something new. There's something really new", he said. Apart from lava explosions, there is also a danger of clouds of hydrochloric acid and fine volcanic glass particles.

Since May's eruption, lava has destroyed over 700 homes, as new fissures form in residential neighbourhoods. But the only serious injury over the past two months was to a man who was hit by flying lava that broke his leg.
