Hawaii volcano spews 6 mile-high plume of ash, could blow again

  • Senate aims to improve volcano warning system

No injuries have been reported from the eruption.

The immediate risk health risk comes from ash particles in the air, said Dr. Josh Green, a state senator who represents part of the Big Island. The ship sails weekly round-trips from Honolulu (Oahu) to Kahului (Maui), Hilo and Kona (Hawaii) and Nawiliwili (Kauai). "Additional such explosions are expected and could be more powerful", it cautioned.

'The beauty of [the Hawaiian Islands],' Stuart added, 'is that there's a range of diverse destinations for us to be able to change around and adjust the itinerary'. He's making sure the hundreds of evacuees that are using the shelter have food and a place to sleep, as well as any comfort they need during the stressful time. Passenger jets generally cruise at around 30,000 feet, the height of Thursday's plume.

"Volcanic eruptions, like the one in Hawai'i and the one earlier this month at Cleveland Volcano in Alaska, are vivid reminders of why it is so critical to have continuous and reliable monitoring systems", Sen.

Dr. Josh Green says those with respiratory problems should limit exposure to ash that spewed from Kilauea volcano Thursday.

"My equivalent of this _ and I'm from South Florida where we have hurricanes _ is driving quite literally into a hurricane", she said. But Kilauea could release hotter, faster-moving and more voluminous lava because magma has moving into the area from further up the volcano, she said.

In the 1924 eruption, which lasted 2-1/2 weeks, one person was killed by debris shot from the crater and areas as far as 35 miles (56 km) to the southwest and 30 miles (48 km) to the east were dusted with ash, according to the USGS. Due to elevated sulfur dioxide levels in the area, local schools are also closed, Hawaii County Civil Defense said.

Geologists say the latest eruptions are being caused by lava levels substantially draining at the summit.

European participants in the nuclear deal with Iran should provide within 60 days guarantees on the preservation of the agreement.

Geologists had warned that a chain of explosive eruptions could begin once Kilauea's falling lava lake descended below the water table, allowing water to run on to the top of the lava column and create steam-driven blasts.

The Federal Aviation Administration is prohibiting aircraft from entering airspace up to 30,000 feet (9,100 meters) in the sky above the summit crater of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano after it erupted ash high into the air. In the 1960s, an eruption at Kilauea stopped for a year and a half before the volcano suddenly resumed spewing ash.

But phreatic eruptions can still pose a deadly threat to anyone near the eruptive vent - and they are extremely hard to forecast, Poland said. Observatory staff had left their Kilauea location on Wednesday, for a facility at the University of Hawaii in Hilo, after concluding that wind could carry ashfall toward the station. 37 houses have been burned by lava coming out of volcanic fissures.

"The resulting ash plume will cover the surrounding area".

Little progress made on any Brexit issue
When queried if there was very little progress in recent weeks, he said "a little, not very little". British Science Minister Sam Gyimah told the BBC "we have helped to develop the Galileo system".

Despite the volcanic activity, Hoyt said most people on the island are going about their day as normal.
