Officials warn of falling ash after explosion at Kilauea summit

The Latest Some people evacuated by Hawaii lava go home

"We've pretty much thrown everything at this event" since a series of lava fissures began emerging from cracks in neighborhood last month, Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency Administrator Talmadge Magno said Monday.

There's no way to know when the eruption will end or if more lava-spewing vents will open, according to USGS scientists.

In the meantime, fewer workers are needed to staff a 24-hour operations center and officials are reducing checkpoints, Magno said. It is flowing toward a community that got wiped out last week.

"Seismic activity at the crater continues with gas explosions and ash eruptions under 10,000 feet (3,050m)".

The USGS said: "Hawaiian Volcano Observatory field crews are on site tracking the fountains, lava flows, and spattering from Fissure 8 as conditions allow and are reporting information to Hawaii County Civil Defence".

An eruption at Kilauea summit jolted the area Wednesday with the force of a 5.4 magnitude quake and hurled an ash plume that reached 10,000 feet above sea level.

Because tradewind conditions returned, vog was projected to carry to the south and west sides of the island, while plumes of noxious gas coming out of the ocean around the new Kapoho coastline were pushing those emissions south, farther out over the ocean.

Another ongoing hazard comes from lava meeting the ocean.

The Kapoho ocean entry area continued to produce robust plumes, and USGS said "observers also noted vigorous convection taking place up to 0.9 miles offshore from the entry points".

Scientists warn against venturing too close to lava hitting water, saying it could expose people to dangers from flying debris.
