Erupting Hawaii volcano could next spew 10-ton boulders from its summit, scientists say

Erupting Hawaii volcano could next spew 10-ton boulders from its summit, scientists say | 10 May 2018 | The ongoing surge in volcanic activity on Hawaii’s Big Island soon could cause a massive explosion from the volcano's summit, scientists and Hawaii officials warned Wednesday. Kilauea, the longest-erupting volcano on the planet, has displaced some 1,700 people and destroyed 36 structures since a shifting flow of underground magma last week burst through the surface in a residential neighborhood about 40 miles from the top of the volcano, unleashing torrents of molten rock and toxic gases. Scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said Wednesday that the movement of magma from the summit...has caused the lava lake at the top of the volcano to drop in elevation. When that lava lake meets the ground water level -- which they think is most likely to happen sometime in the next few weeks -- it could lead to a series of powerful steam explosions that could shower the surrounding area in 10-ton molten rocks and spew ash as far as 20 miles downwind, the scientists said during a conference call with reporters.
