Hawaii officials hope Kilauea volcano eruption won't deter travelers

Hawaii tourism officials are hoping Kilauea's eruption won't deter travelers from visiting the state's largest island -- even as geologists warn the volcano could soon shoot large boulders out of its summit. Travel industry executives note that most of the Big Island is free of eruption threats from Kilauea, which began spewing lava and gas into a residential neighborhood earlier this month.

The Big Island is "immense" and there are large parts that are unaffected by the volcano, said George Szigeti, CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
