Big Island Volcano Attracts Visitors

March 8, 2011 By: Jena Tesse Fox

USA Today is reporting that an eruption on the east rift of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano, which began Saturday, has created lava spatters of up to 65 feet--and, according to a National Park Service statement, has boosted visitation to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

While the eruption has caused the closure of Chain of Craters Road, a campground and coastal trails in the area, the park's most popular regions remain open and another eruption that has been ongoing for years is visible from several viewing areas.

Air-tour companies have added some flights to accommodate demand, says a spokeswoman for the Big Island's tourist office, although a 1,500-foot temporary flight restriction has been imposed around the eruption.
