An undersea volcano off the coast of Samoa recently started erupting and is billowing "smoggy" water for several miles, scientists reported Tuesday. The volcano, Vailuluiu, is 28 miles east of Taiu Island, on the eastern side of Samoa. It rises 16,400 feet from the ocean bottom and reaches to within 2,000 feet of the surface. Scientists at the Scripps and Woods Hole institutes of oceanography suspected the volcano might be active after a swarm of earthquakes was reported at the volcano in 1995.
