Blast from Hawaii crater sends ash plume 13,000ft into the skyThe blast from the summit’s Halemaumau crater sent smog billowing into the air while the lava made its way into evacuated areas in the eastern corner of Hawaii’s Big Island.

In Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens lava flow has spread over 3.7 square miles from around two dozen fissures.
