Hawaii volcano simmers ominously, experts warn it could blow again

Hawaii volcano simmers ominously, experts warn it could blow againBy Terray Sylvester PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) – Hawaii residents drove through clouds of sulfur and over roads splitting open to make desperate and possibly last visits home on Tuesday before another eruption by Kilauea volcano, which has already destroyed 35 homes and other structures. The explosions from Kilauea, which began five days ago, paused on Tuesday long enough for many of the roughly 1,700 people ordered to flee their homes in the hardest-hit Leilani Estates area to rush back in for pets or cherished belongings they were forced to leave behind. “The way it looks now, I thought I’d try one more time to get my things out,” U.S. Army veteran Delance Weigel, 71, said while collecting some of his prized possessions shortly after 7 a.m. on Tuesday as steam and sulfur dioxide gas rose out of cracks in the street.
