  • Hawaii Volcano Erupts, Sends Ash Plume 30000 Feet Into The Air

"Hawaii Volcano Observatory reports that an Explosive Eruption at Kilauea's summit has occurred".

The volcano blasted out huge blocks earlier today and quakes as large as magnitude 4.4 have been felt on the island. The floor of the summit crater has also dropped about three feet (90 centimeters), as the threat of a strong, explosive eruption at the top of the volcano loomed. The deflation on the ground as lava level falls is causing stress faults around the crater to move, resulting in the earthquakes.

In this Tuesday, May 15, 2018 photo provided by the U.S. Geological Survey, highly viscous lava oozes from the edge of a flow spreading slowly from fissure 17 at Kilauea Volcano, in Hawaii.

Poland says ash accumulations are minimal and that trace amounts were expected near the volcano and on a nearby town, named Volcano. Ash plumes on Tuesday had spouted as high as 12,000 feet (3,657 meters) into the air, scientists said.

Those areas were evacuated as lava destroyed at least 26 homes and 10 other structures.

The crater of the volcano is inside Hawaii Volcanoes national park, which has been closed to the public since May 11.

National Guard troops donned gas masks to protect themselves from toxic sulfur dioxide gas at the intersection of highways 130 and 132, the main exit routes from the village of Pahoa, 25 miles (40 km) east of the volcano, where numerous ground fissures have erupted, a Reuters reporter in the village said.

The natural disaster also created sizable cracks and floor shifting in the park's Visitor Emergency Operations Center and caused a temporary loss of power and ruptured several water lines.

The highway is the main thoroughfare for residents living in Volcano and Kau. "The wind will carry the plume toward the southeast".

The cracks are on the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park portion of Highway 11. Gen. Kenneth Hara will have the authority to command both National Guard and active duty military forces in the task force. The National Park Service says they are assessing the situation.

Hara says there are now about 1,200 soldiers and nine UH-60 helicopters now training on the Big Island.

"There is very little wind at the summit", he said.

About two hours later, Poland said the webcam view showed a dusty plume rising from the summit.

Because of the ash, USGS scientists operated from a backup command center at the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
