Two new lava flows have broken out at Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, but neither is threatening nearby communities.

Kilauea is one of the world's most active volcanoes. In 2014 lava from one of its vents crept into the town of Pahoa, smothering part of a cemetery and burning down a home.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says the new lava flows broke out Tuesday morning from one of Kilauea's cones.

The U.S. Geological Survey released video showing the glowing red lava as it pushed through a black landscape.

Kilauea has been erupting continuously for more than 33 years. It's one of five volcanoes that make up Hawaii's Big Island.
