A blob of hot volcanic lava struck an ocean tour boat just off the Big Island of Hawaii on Monday (July 16), injuring nearly two dozen people in the worst casualty incident to date from the ongoing eruption of the Kilauea Volcano. Authorities said the chaos was caused when a huge steam-driven explosion, caused by molten rock mixing with seawater as it poured from the shoreline, sent a 'lava bomb' crashing through the roof of the boat and into the vessel's seating area.
