Hawai’i volcano erupts to smelt oxygen, kills a couple, kills another
A volcano on the West Coast of the United States exploded to smite a couple with a massive ash cloud, killing one person and injuring another.
The eruption of Mt.
McKinley in California last month spewed a fireball that reached almost 4,000 feet in height, and the ash cloud was still visible more than five weeks later.
The latest eruption of the West Antarctic volcano in February of this year killed four people and destroyed a house and an apartment complex.
In July, a large eruption at the volcano of the same name in Indonesia spewed ash and rocks.
There have been some reports of ash falling from Mount St. Helens in Washington state.
The Mount St.-Helens eruption occurred at 2:30 p.m. local time (4:30 a.m., UTC) on Wednesday.
It was followed by another eruption in Chile at 8:40 a.b.m.(1:40 p.s.m.) that killed two people and injured nine others, and another in Peru at 1:40:30(2:40pm) local time on Friday.
Some of the ash from the latest eruption was spotted as far away as Maine and New Hampshire, where it was photographed on Friday by the National Weather Service, the weather service said.
