Scientists monitoring new eruptions at Hawaii volcano

HONOLULU - Scientists on Sunday were closely monitoring heightened activity at Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii, after a fissure sent lava spewing 65 feet (20 meters) in the air.
No homes were threatened and no campers were injured, said park rangers, but they cautioned visitors to still keep their distance from the volcano.
Kilauea has been in constant eruption for 28 years. But geologist Janet Babb of the US Geological Survey said this weekend's activity indicates "new episodes in eruptions and further unknowns."
