La Reunion Island

April 04, 2007
Raging lava has spewed out of one of the world's most active volcanos on the French island of La Reunion.
The red hot lava cut roads in half, damaged homes and created huge clouds of steam as it flowed into the Indian Ocean.
The volcano is about 530,000 years old and has erupted an estimated 170 times since the mid 17th century.
La Reunion is a small island wedged between Madagascar and Mauritius.
