According to the National Weather Service in Honolulu, a new lava flow interacted with a pool of water inside the crater and that led to a quick, but strong eruption late Sunday night. A steam cloud shot up near 30,000 feet and USGS officials estimate lava fountains rose to 165 feet into the atmosphere. The NWS also issued an advisory for falling ash as prolonged exposure to ash can cause eye and respiratory irritation.
