Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Eruptions Seem to Form a New Island

New Island Of Lava Growing Off The Coast Of Hawaiian Island

They crashed through the roof and injured a reported 13, with one woman said to be in a serious condition with a fractured femur. Photo also showed debris littering the floor of the boat. But with timely evacuations and public attention, few have been injured seriously. The new island formed at the northernmost part of the ocean entry and is "oozing lava similar to the lava oozing from the broad flow front along the coastline". The other wounded passengers were being treated for burns and scrapes.

The boat was able to return to its port in Hilo less than an hour later, and three of the injured were taken to a local hospital by ambulance, Okinaka said.

The event, which occured early this morning in Hawaii, injured 23 passengers on a lava tour. Along with first responders both state and county officers were at the Wailoa ramp when the boat returned after the incident.

Lava continues to flow from fissure 8, but all other fissures became inactive as of Monday.

More information will be published as it becomes available.

"It's unclear how close Turpin's tour boat was to the Kapoho lava ocean entry when the explosion happened, but eyewitnesses report the boat appeared to be 'very close, '" she wrote, noting that the Coast Guard recently changed the mandatory safety perimeter required around ocean lava entries from 100 to 50 meters for the tour operators.

Snyder said neither the exact location of the incident nor the total number of passengers aboard the boat were immediately known.

Hawaii's exploding Kilauea volcano is now erupting huge balls of lava which are shooting into the sky before falling down to the sea.

He didn't observe "any major explosions", so he navigated his vessel closer, to about 250 yards away from the lava.

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

Officials say it can be unsafe to get close to lava entering the ocean, because clouds of acid and fine glass can be created as the transfer takes place. There were no warning signs before the blast, he said.
