Hawaii: Kilauea eruption forces residents to seek shelter
18 May, 2018, 09:30 | Author: Essie Rivera
An explosion at Kilauea volcano's summit spawned chunky boulders and a tremendous volcanic cloud that reached as high as commercial airplanes fly - about 30,000 feet (5.6 miles, or 9.1 kilometers) above sea level - early this morning (May 17) local time. This legislation improves the nation's volcano monitoring and early warning capabilities and strengthens existing monitoring systems, including the Cascades Volcano Observatory in Washington state and OR, to help keep communities and travelers safe.
"Scientists at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory are working around the clock to provide critical, up-to-date information to keep Hawai'i Island residents safe", Sen.
"Smog from Kilauea drifted north up the island chain as the districts of Kau, Puna, and North and South Hilo were told by the National Weather Service to expect ashfall. They'd even take their little postcards, burn one corner in the lava flow, mail then off, stuff like that", he said.
Officials on Hawaii's Big Island will be handing out free masks to protect people from breathing volcanic ash.
The masks will be handed out from 1 p.m.to 7 p.m. Officials warn they won't protect against gases and vapors.
In addition to monitoring the volcano's current activity, researchers are scouring data from Kilauea's extensive monitoring network - which includes tiltmeters, seismometers, and ground and aerial gas detectors - in search of any changes that preceded this explosive event.
Robert Hughes owns the Aloha Junction Bed and Breakfast, about a mile and a half from the crater. "We as the scientific community feel we owe it to the people being impacted to get it right and learn as much as we can", he says.

Mr Poland said accumulations are minimal, and it will likely be trace amounts near the volcano and on a nearby town, named Volcano.
About two hours later, Poland said the webcam view showed a dusty plume rising from the summit.
Tarson said the ash plume looked different than others he's witnessed because of its sheer height. Ash plume expected to spread to SE. "I hope the House of Representatives will move quickly to approve this timely legislation so that we can ensure the U.S. Geological Survey has the resources it needs to strengthen our monitoring, warning, and response capabilities". The quakes "caused noticeable structural damage" in buildings at the state's Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, according to Hawaii Public Radio.
USGS says since the 1980s, "eruptive activity has been continuous along the East Rift Zone" and the volcano ranks among the world's most active.
Kilauea has been erupting continuously since 1983 and an uptick in volcanic activity that began two weeks ago has already destroyed at least 26 homes and caused thousands of residents to evacuate.
Geologists said it was extremely unlikely Kilauea would have a massive eruption like that of 1790 which killed dozens of people in the deadliest eruption to occur in what is now the United States.
