Cool: Undersea explosions in "Ring of Fire"

Residents of Tonga, an island in the South Pacific's famed "Ring of Fire," are hustling aboard boats this week to catch a glimpse of an undersea volcano that has been erupting for several days and shooting steam, smoke and ash thousands of feet into the sky.
According to reports, the columns are pillaring up about 6 miles from the southwest coast of the island. Authorities believe the eruption poses no danger to islanders and trade winds have continued to blow dust and gases away from the island.
