PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia’s Office of Emergency Management is letting the city know that work at Philadelphia Energy Solutions may cause an odor at the facility. This work comes as the company continues the refinery’s closing process after an explosion and fire on June 21. The office added that work will be done on equipment that contains a non-hazardous substance. Tuesday’s work is expected to be completed by the early evening.

close Video Sixth victim has died in New Zealand volcano eruption Dozens of people have been hospitalized and several are still missing after the eruption in New Zealand. An American couple on their dream honeymoon in New Zealand were among those seriously burned on Monday when a volcano erupted on an island filled with tourists, as officials disclosed Tuesday the death toll had increased. The New Zealand police said in a press release late Tuesday that a person who was being treated after the eruption on White Island at the Middlemore Hospital has died, bringing the official death toll to six. White Island sits about 30 miles offshore from mainland New Zealand and experts say it's the country's most active cone volcano, with about 70 percent of the volcano lying under the sea.

For centuries - and long before Mount Doom drew Tolkien's heroes to Mordor - New Zealand's explosive geology has awed and terrified the island's residents.

The Monday eruption of White Island, New Zealand's most consistently active volcano, killed at least six and injured over two dozen people. It was a painful reminder of the danger behind the country's stunning, and sometimes surreal, landscapes: the ever-present possibility of another eruption. "It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and where," said Janine Krippner, a volcanologist and New Zealand native who works with the Smithsonian Institution's Global Volcanism Program. "Having a true respect for all the hazards we have and how they contribute to society is really important." New Zealand has volcanoes aplenty, Krippner said, especially … [Read more...] about Volcanoes shaped New Zealand. This week’s eruption will not be the last.
