Volcano museum to reopen in Hawaii

Visitors to Kilauea volcano are now being allowed to drive and hike to Jagger Museum.
Officials say as long as the trade winds continue to blow sulfur dioxide away from the erupting volcano, the museum, overlook and bookstore will remain open.

Rangers at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park are monitoring pollution levels.

The museum building is open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. The bookstore closes at 5 p.m.
The overlook and restrooms are open 24 hours a day.

An increase in sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano's Halemaumau crater has created hazardous conditions downwind.

Officials say the weather could change anytime.
