Pacific volcano erupts near Marianas islands

updated 3:57 a.m. PT, Mon., June 02, 2010

SAIPAN, Northern Marianas - Scientists say a volcanic eruption near the Pacific's Northern Mariana Islands shot clouds of ash and vapor nearly eight miles into the sky.

The U.S. Geological Survey says Saturday morning's eruption appeared to come from an underwater volcano off Sarigan, an uninhabited island about 100 miles north of the U.S. commonwealth's main island of Saipan.

USGS volcanologist Game McGimsey says the eruption was largely water vapor and strong winds are dispersing it.
