Danger Continues to Grow for Hawaii Residents with Kilauea Volcano

Danger Continues to Grow for Hawaii Residents with Kilauea Volcano

On Monday, the Hawaii State Department of Health warned residents in Lanipuna Gardens of risky levels of sulfur dioxide gas.

"Condition RED means immediate danger to health so take action to limit further exposure". The gas may cause choking and make people unable to breathe, the county said as it warned people in the area to leave. "This is a serious situation that affects the entire exposed population".

Lava burns across a road in the Leilani Estates subdivision near Pahoa, Hawaii.

The Hawaii State Department of Health is asking the general public to avoid any area with fissures because the gases emitted require special cartridge respirators.

No, the ongoing rampage at Hawaii's Kilauea volcano won't trigger eruptions at Mount Rainier or other Cascades volcanoes.

CNN reports the week after Kilauea erupted on May 3, the island lost about $1.5 million.

Volcanic fissures in which lava erupts, usually without any explosive activity, are often a few meters wide and can be several miles long.

As of Tuesday, 20 volcanic fissures spewing gas and bright orange lava have opened up in the area.

This Country, Three Girls Each Score Two BAFTA TV Awards
In the worldwide category, the BAFTA was awarded to The Handmaid's Tale , the adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel. On the comedy front, " This Country " won Best Comedy Series over " Catastrophe ", "Chewing Gum" and "Timewasters".

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported a fissure opened Saturday just east of the Puna Geothermal Venture energy conversion plant, where steam and hot liquid are brought up through underground wells and the steam feeds a turbine generator to produce electricity.

The National Weather Service's Honolulu Office warned residents on Monday that a rockslide at Kilauea's summit crater created a plume of smoke and ash, which affected the Kau neighborhood. The officials plan to order thousands more to evacuate before all the escape routes are cut off. "Now they tend to stay indoors, it has created a breathing problem for them".

Meanwhile, fissure 17, which opened Sunday morning, remained the most active, said Janet Babb, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist.

"It sounded like hammers in the dryer", she said. "It's like a black, grimy soot".

Lava from one of the fissures has been moving towards a coastal dirt road that is also a key access route for some 2,000 residents in the southeastern area of the Big Island, home to around 200,000 people.

Almost 20 fissures have opened since the volcano started erupting 12 days ago, and officials warn it may soon blow its top with a massive steam eruption that would shoot boulders and ash miles into the sky.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution as metal plates will be placed over the cracks on the roadway, according to the agency.

The eruption of lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano might have you wondering about Washington state's own volcanoes.
