VIDEO: Hawaii's Kilauea volcano erupting once again

TEHRAN, Jan. 07 (MNA) – Weeks after Hawaii’s Mauna Loa erupted for the first time in decades, neighboring volcano Kilauea is showing activity again after a brief pause, according to officials.

One of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea in Hawaii, has resumed erupting after nearly a monthlong pause in activity, scientists said.

Just after 4:30 p.m. local time on Thursday, a glow was detected at the volcano’s summit in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, on the Big Island of Hawaii, according to a news release from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Officials said that volcanic activity was confined to a crater on the summit and that they would monitor hazards as the eruption progresses.
