CLOUD OF ASH FROM HAWAII'S KILAUEA VOLCANO PROMPTS “RED ALERT”
The US Geological Survey (USGS) said that several new lava fissures had opened in the Leilani Estates subdivision of Puna District, about 19 km from the volcano. Hawaii Volcano Observatory reports that an Explosive Eruption at Kilauea's summit has occurred.
Kilauea is the youngest and most active Hawaiian shield volcano, located on the southern part of the Island of Hawai'i, known as Big Island.
In Hilo 30 miles (48 kilometers) from the volcano, Pua'ena Ahn says he has experienced labored breathing, itchy, watery eyes and some skin irritation as ash plumes intensified in recent days.
Nearby residents are being asked to shelter in place if they are in the path of the ash plume, which the wind is carrying to the northeast of the volcano, the USGS said.
This Wednesday, May 16, 2018, image provided by the U.S. Geological Survey shows sulfur dioxide plumes rising from fissures along the rift and accumulating in the cloud deck, viewed from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory overflight in the morning at 8:25 a.m., HST near Pahoa, Hawaii.
The powerful, steam-driven blast was expected to spew large amounts of volcanic ash and smoke from Kilauea's crater on Hawaii's Big Island.
A red aviation code had already been issued - warning pilots to avoid the potentially damaging ash cloud.
