Volcano Eruptions

The lowdown on volcano eruptions:

Kilauea volcano in Hawaii has been producing lava flows since 1983 without a break, despite a history of much shorter eruptions. The volcano on the Mediterranean island of Stromboli has been spitting out molten rock for at least 2,400 years. (An “open vent” at Stromboli allows magma to emerge almost continuously, with little explosions every 20 minutes or so.) At least 14 other volcanoes have been erupting for more than 30 years.
