Volcano Bursts its Banks into the Pacific Ocean, Again

1A Firehose of Lava

A volcano is Hawaii has been filmed spurting out molten lava like a waterfall into the Pacific Ocean.

The spectacular video was shot by a professional visual artist, Matt Paul, in mid-February and uploaded to Facebook over the weekend.

In Mr Paul’s footage a group of excited tourists can been seen laughing just metres from the flowing lava.

The breathtaking footage shows the “firehose” of lava glowing red amid the backdrop of a dark night sky.

Earth Scientists working in Kamokuna have issued a warning through the US Geological Survey for tourists to not to venture too close to the lava.

Clouds of smoke billow about as the lava spout crashes into the waves below on the southeast side of the Big Island.
