Lava Erupts From Volcanoes In Iceland, Papua New Guinea

(Undated) -- Volcanoes are erupting in Iceland and the South Pacific. Scientists in Iceland say lava is streaming from a fissure more than half-a-mile long. The lava broke through a rift in an older lava flow around 8 p.m. Eastern time Thursday. A major eruption early this morning is spewing ash and lava on the island nation of Papua New Guinea in the southwestern Pacific. Meteorologists in Australia are keeping a close eye on the ash cloud from the volcano, since it could affect air travel in the region.
