Hawaiian Island Volcano Erupts VOLCANO, Hawaii (UPI) Kilauea volcano smoldered and sputtered today after a spectacular eruption sent fountains of fire soaring 100 feet in the air, ripped open a giant fissure and touched off forest fires. The unexpected eruption Saturday on the island of Hawaii, amidst hundreds of earthquakes, occurred just 10 days after a devastating earthquake shook the state, causing severe damage to the town of Hilo just 30 miles from Kilauea. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park rangers battled forest fires and had them under control. But the Chain of Craters Highway and the Hilina Pali Road were both damaged by the moving lava, Scientists at the volcano observatory started getting indications of an impending eruption just three hours beforehand Saturday morning. Since the national park is a popular tourist attraction, rangers quickly cleared out the public. Scientists tried to determine whether the eruption and the series of earthquakes accompanying it were related to the earthquake April 26 that caused almost $6 million in damages to the "big island." Dr. John Unger said, "There may have been some kind of change in the volcano's plumbing after the earthquake."
