Lava flowing from the volcano recently reached the ocean, causing a risky lava-haze phenomena known as ' laze' that sends acid- and glass-laced steam shooting into the air, creating yet another hazard for those downwind of the lava's ocean entry point. Laze, a word combination of lava and haze, contains hydrochloric acid steam along with volcanic glass particles.
