String of Hawaii volcano explosions shoot ash to 11,000 feet

String of Hawaii volcano explosions shoot ash to 11,000 feetBy Joyln Rosa HONOLULU (Reuters) – A series of summit explosions on Saturday from Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano spewed ash up to 11,000 feet (3,353 m) and dusted the grey powdered rock on communities to the southwest, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said. The three explosions, which began around 12:42 a.m. (6:42 a.m. ET/1042 GMT)), marked the latest bursts of ash and volcanic smog from Kilauea during the fourth week of what geologists rank as one of its biggest eruption cycles in a century. Residents downwind of Kilauea were advised by County of Hawaii Civil Defense to avoid exposure to ash, which can cause eye irritation and breathing difficulties, particularly in people with respiratory problems.

Hawaii volcano spews 'ballistic blocks' into the sky in 'most energetic explosions yet'A smouldering volcano in Hawaii has hurled large stones hundreds of metres and sent clouds of ash drifting over a number of communities. Plumes of ash from Kilauea rose as high as 3,000 metres above sea level, dusting towns as far as 18 miles away with ash and air pollution known as “vog”. Rockfalls within one of the volcano’s vents helped unleash more activity, geologists said, abruptly pushing out more ash.
