Hawaii volcano could start spewing big rocks, smog, ash

Hawaii volcano could start spewing big rocks, smog, ashBy Terray Sylvester PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) – A large explosion in Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano on Wednesday may mark the beginning of more violent, explosive eruptions that could spray rocks for miles (kilometers) and dust nearby towns in volcanic ash and smog, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Kilauea, Hawaii’s most active volcano, erupted on Thursday, and a powerful earthquake shook the crater the next day. “This is the first of perhaps more events like that to come,” Tina Neal, the scientist in charge of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said of Wednesday’s blast which shot projectiles from the crater.

Hawaii volcano latest: Drone footage shows lava spewing out of ground near residential area after Mount Kilauea erupts

Hawaii volcano latest: Drone footage shows lava spewing out of ground near residential area after Mount Kilauea eruptsLava spewing from a crack near Mount Kilauea in Hawaii which recently erupted has been filmed by a drone. Taken by photographer Jeremiah Osuna, magma can be seen hissing and sputtering from a large chasm near a residential area in Pahoa. Leilani Estates, home to about 1,500 people, appeared to be at greatest risk, but scientists said new vents and outbreaks could occur and it’s not possible to say where.

Hawaii volcano erupts, spewing lava and forcing thousands to evacuate

Hawaii volcano erupts, spewing lava and forcing thousands to evacuateThe US state of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano erupted Thursday, causing lava to spew out of ground fissures in residential areas and prompting authorities to mandate thousands of people to evacuate. US Geological Survey authorities of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory unit were both on the ground and headed into the air to assess the eruption, which followed dozens of earthquakes in recent days and began around 4:45 pm local time (0245 GMT), according to the agency. Local news footage showed streams of lava snaking through a forest, while the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency reported “steam and lava emissions from a crack in Leilani Subdivision in the area of Mohala Street,” following the blast, mandating all residents to leave the affected area.
