Vertical plume of ash explodes from Hawaii volcano

  Vertical plume of ash explodes from Hawaii volcano A small explosion of ash erupted from the summit of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano early on Tuesday morning in a vertical plume some 15,000 feet (4,600 meters) high, the U.S. Geological Survey said, the latest outburst in a month of volcanic activity. The agency warned that ash was drifting northwest and liable to dust anyone in the summit area. Hundreds of people have been ordered to leave the vicinity of the biggest eruption cycle in a century of one of the world's most active volcanoes.Multiple fissures continue to spew up hot lava flows, which have blocked roads and damaged dozens of buildings on Hawaii's Big Island.

ELIZABETH, N.J. — A school bus has overturned on a ramp near a bridge connecting New Jersey and New York City.

Police say it happened around 4 p.m. Thursday on the New Jersey Turnpike near the Goethals Bridge, connecting the city of Elizabeth and Staten Island.

Police say all of the occupants were able to get off the bus and any injuries appear to be minor.

Video shows the bus on its side with its front end mangled.

Several ambulances and rescue vehicles responded to the scene. It wasn't clear where the bus originated.

The bus hood has a Hebrew logo for the Mevakshei Hashem Yeshiva, a school in Brooklyn. A woman who picked up the phone at the school's administrative office said they had no details about the bus crash.
