Mount Kilauea in Hawaii has started erupting again… for the second time in less than a year
The U.S. Geological Survey says the eruption is contained to one crater.
While looking at their webcam, officials at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory noticed a glow coming from Kilauea’s summit.
That glow turned out to be lava shooting 100 feet into the air, emitting from the summit’s caldera.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park remains open, but those with respiratory issues are advised to stay away so they don’t breathe in volcanic fumes.
