12 injured when lava bomb hits Hawaii tour boat

The video provided by Hawaiian Lava Boat Tours below shows a second explosion, a minute or so after the first one that damaged the Lava Ocean Tours vessel. A woman in her 20s is reportedly in a serious condition as the incident broke her thigh bone.

Though the Kilauea volcano has been in a continuous state of eruption since 1983, in recent months it's become more active - resulting in destruction in some parts of the island. The other 10 people were treated for superficial injuries upon the boat's return to Wailoa Harbor, according to CNN.

The people were aboard a tour boat that takes visitors to see lava plunging into the ocean. Hawaiʻi County Fire officials say a lava bomb punctured the roof of the boat, leaving a large hole.

A huge steam-driven explosion sent a "lava bomb" crashing through the roof of the boat and into the vessel's seating area, authorities said. The USGS said on its website that "a fast-moving pahoehoe lava flow that emerged from fissure 20 continues to flow southeast", with the quickest of three "lobes" progressing at 230 yards (210 meters) per hour.

Hawaii's County Civil Defense Agency confirmed the terrifying incident took place early Monday morning.

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

What the latest Russia probe indictments show for the first time
But, we know that the person in charge of protecting us from Russian influence, President Donald Trump , does not care about that. Eleven of the 12 Russians are charged with money laundering, aggravated identity theft, and conspiracy to commit computer crimes.

Channelized lava emerges on Kilauea Volcano's lower East Rift Zone on Hawaii. The worst case was a 20-year-old woman who suffered a traumatic, leg injury.

The U.S. Geological Survey geologist Janet Babb explained that explosions occur whenever 2,000-degree (1,093-degree Celsius) lava enters cold seawater.

Hawaii's continuously erupting Kīlauea has been pretty busy this week, creating short-lived islands and hurling lava bombs at unsuspecting tourists over the last few days.

It has destroyed more than 700 homes since then.

The boat is one of two owned by Lava Ocean Tours, a company whose website promises adventure seekers that they can "See, Hear & Feel the heat from your front row seat".
