A woman, who was seriously injured as a molten stone crashed on the roof of her excursion boat off Hawaii, was transported to Honolulu for further treatment.

The spokesperson for Hilo Medical Center, Elena Cabatu, said today that the woman was condemned in serious condition. Firefighters in the county of Hawaii say they broke their thighs.

A dozen others from the excursion boat searched the hospital for minor burns and scratches. Cabatu says they have all been published.

The County of Hawaii Fire Department reported that a total of 23 people were injured when the lava flew over the roof of the excursion ship. The others were treated for superficial wounds.

The US Geological Survey states that explosions of different sizes occur when 2,000 degrees of lava penetrate into much colder seawater.

The tour boats welcome spectators to see the lava entering the ocean.

The US Geological Survey states that explosions of different sizes occur when lava with a temperature of 1093 degrees Celsius gets into much colder seawater.

But the big explosion that blew the lava on a boat tour on Monday could also have something to do with the topography of the ocean and the amount of molten rock that is currently entering the ocean in that area.

The geologist of USGS, Janet Babb, says that lava mixed with water is always explosive, but there are times when the molten rock can be encrusted in water. If this crust breaks the interaction, it can cause huge explosions of vapor that can hurl hundreds of meters of debris. in the & # 39; air.

The volume of lava that now enters the sea is much higher than in previous rivers, says Babb, and since the sea in this area is relatively shallow, lava has more chance of accumulating on the surface and exploding.

The owner and captain of a boat hit by the lava says he has never seen the explosion that caused large chunks of hot stone to rain down from his boat off the island.

Shane Turpin said Monday that he and his party spent 20 minutes at about 500 meters from the coast, without seeing large explosions from where Kilauea's lava enters the ocean.

He says that he then drove his ship about 250 meters from the lava.

He says the explosion came from behind while the ship left the area. Officials say 23 people were injured, one in serious condition.

Turpin says he has observed and documented the explosions from the volcano, and there have been no warnings about the explosion lava sent to his boat.

Turpin says he has traveled on lava boats for years and has lived on Big Island since 1983.

Kilauea has exploded for decades, but new openings in the May districts have destroyed more than 700 homes while the lava flowed into the ocean.

Hawaiian officials have updated the number of casualties who, after an explosion, have launched lava through the roof of an excursion boat off the island. 23 were injured.

The Hawaii County Fire Department said Monday that a woman in her early twenties was in serious condition with a broken femur.

The ambulances brought her and three others to the hospital after the boat returned to shore. Nine people with superficial injuries went to the hospital and ten other passengers were treated at the port for superficial wounds.

Firefighters say the lava has left a large hole in the roof of a pleasure boat, causing visitors a chance to see the molten rock that flows into the ocean.

Hawaii officials say a 20-year-old woman takes a deep breath after an explosion caused by lava to fly through the roof of an excursion boat off the Big Island.

The State Department of Land and Natural Resources said that at least 13 people were injured on Monday. In addition to the woman, the passengers reported burns and scratches.

They were on board an excursion boat, letting visitors see the lava plunge into the ocean.

Officials warned against the danger of approaching the lava, which penetrates the ocean, saying that the interaction can cause clouds of acid and thin glass.

The lava comes from the Kilauea volcano, which has been erupted from a rural residential area from the beginning of May. Until now, the only serious injury to a man hit by a flying lava broke his leg.
