According to Reuters, tour boats have returned to provide a close-up look at lava pouring from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano into the Pacific Ocean. The tour boats operate off the Big Island. There are new safety rules in place a day after 23 passengers were injured by ash and molten rock during one tour. The accident has prompted the U.S. Coast Guard to require boat captains to stay at least 300 yards from lava flowing from fissures in the volcano. Previously, experienced operators only had to stay only 164 feet away.
