Volcanoes National Park Re-opens

VOLCANO, Hawaii (KHNL) - Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has been reopen at 10 AM Thursday morning.

The trade winds have returned, thus reducing the danger caused by a smoke plume issuing from Kilauea crater.

Kilauea Military Camp and Volcano House will also re-open.

"The park is Hawaii's gift to the world, said Park Superintendent Cindy Orlando. "We are happy to be sharing it with everyone again."

The park was closed on Monday due to concerns about sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano.
