Explosion at Hawaii volcano spews ash as lava flows into seaA small explosion at the summit of Hawaii’s erupting Kilauea Volcano on Sunday sent ash spewing into the air, creating a driving hazard for roads on parts of the Big Island, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Lava fountains from a fissure in the volcano reached as high as 180 feet (55 meters) from Saturday night into Sunday, pushing flows of molten rock into the ocean, it said. “Seismic activity at the crater continues with gas explosions and ash eruptions under 10,000 feet (3,050 meters).

Hawaii volcano latest: Molten lava flows onto power plant site amid fears over deadly gases

Hawaii volcano latest: Molten lava flows onto power plant site amid fears over deadly gasesMolten lava from Hawaii’s erupting Kilauea volcano crept onto the site of geothermal power plant as workers raced to shut down facilities, amid fears that deadly gases could be released. Crews worked to cap underground wells at the plant, which provides a quarter of Big Island’s power, as the molten rock destroyed a warehouse a few hundred metres away. If lava enters the wells at the Puna Geothermal Venture plant, it could trigger the uncontrollable release of noxious sulphates, officials have warned.

Hawaii braces for worse lava flows from erupting volcano

Hawaii braces for worse lava flows from erupting volcanoBy Terray Sylvester PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) – More destructive lava flows could soon hit Hawaii’s Big Island as the Kilauea volcano erupts, posing a greater threat than oozing magma that has so far destroyed dozens of homes and forced thousands to evacuate, scientists said. As a lava lake at Kilauea’s summit drains inside the volcano, magma is running underground. It could burst to the surface as large, fast-moving and intensely hot lava flows and produce higher levels of toxic gases, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientist-in-charge Tina Neal said.
