National park reopens in Hawaii

By Associated Press

VOLCANO, Hawaii (AP) _ Hawaii Volcanoes National Park reopened yesterday after being closed for two days.

A park spokesman says a change in weather conditions has led to acceptable levels of sulfur dioxide around the park.

Park Superintendent Cindy Orlando ordered the closure of the park Wednesday as a lack of wind caused the gas from Kilauea to linger over the Big Island volcano.

The closure included the evacuation of around 2,000 people from the park.

Elevated levels of sulfur dioxide also forced the closure of the park for two days earlier this month.
