Volcano erupts in Hawaii

Posted: Updated:

Hawaii (AP) - One of the world's most active volcanoes has started to rumble again.

Scientists say the crater on the eastern side of Kilauea volcano collapsed, unleashing a torrent of steam and lava.

The lava was seen spewing as high as 65 feet. The new activity along the Hawaiian crater has prompted officials to upgrade the volcano alert level as geologists expect further eruptions.
