Volcano in Hawaii erupts into sky

Volcano In Hawaii Erupts Into Sky

A volcano on Hawaii Island, sometimes called the 'Big Island,' is putting on quite the show. 'Fox and Friends' has the explosive video.

According to 'Fox & Friends,' the video shows lava spewing out of one of the most active volcanoes in the world, rising up to 32 feet.

Considered one of the most active volcanoes in the word, the Kilauea volcano bubbles regularly, but as CBS reports it hasn't erupted since March of 2008.

The current eruption is spewing from a lava lake near the the volcano's summit. According to HLN's 'Morning Express,' geologists say this recent activity is from a gas buildup.

2.6 million people visit the volcano each year, but right now - it is best observed from far, far away. A geologist told The Huffington Post it's just too dangerous to get close.

'The immediate area around this lava lake, including the air space above it,' USGS geologist Janet Babb explained, 'is closed to the public due to ongoing hazards (high levels of sulfur dioxide gas, explosions).'

Kilauea has been shooting lava and ash into the sky for weeks now but is expected to simmer down in the next couple of days.

Just like Florida w/ its hurricanes, California w/ its earthquakes , mudslides, droughts & fires every year, Hawaii has its volcanoes & storms almost every other year or so. It just proves one thing, there aren't to may Edens on this planet that are truly Edens. I personally believe that our earth is what is described in the Bible as HELL, sickness, murders, wars, hunger, droughts & much more as this planet becomes overcrowded, more war like in nature, food products becoming even less available causing starvation worldwide & it is & will get worse as we find ways to destroy ourselves. You might think that I have a loser mentality but look at this planets history over the last 50 years alone, not good. Look at the last 20 years or so just in this country. I have a better education than most dr's & quite a few years on many of them. I see things as they were & as they are now & its not getting any better w/ time. Time will tell us the real truth but will there be anyone around to see the end result.

I had a gas buildup once, and an eruption. But it wasn't lava.

George W Bush is declaring mission accomplished again with a volcano eruption. Well, maybe.

My wife and I have been to all of the Islands many times and each one has it's own beauty. It is just too difficult to pick one as the best. We love them all. We will be there again this summer.

The island of Hawaii isn't "sometimes called the 'Big Island". Being the largest of the Hawaiian islands, it IS called the "Big Island".
