Hawaii volcano could erupt after 250 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours


Hawaiian volcano could be set to erupt after hundreds of earthquakes and the collapse of a crater floor.

Lava may burst through the ground east of Kilauea, the most active of the five volcanoes that form the state’s main island, geologists have warned.

Authorities urged the public to be on alert after scientists noted underground magma flowing beneath a main road near houses in the district of Puna.
