Quakes damage roads as Hawaii volcano spews ash

Senate aims to improve volcano warning system Quakes damage roads as Hawaii volcano spews ash

Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, last experienced explosive eruptions in 1924. The ash cloud is drifting slowly northward from the Kilauea summit and ashfall may occur in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and Volcano Village.

Kilauea volcano has been erupting continuously since 1983.

Some people in the community closest to the volcano slept through the blast, said Kanani Aton, a spokeswoman for Hawaii County Civil Defense, who spoke to relatives and friends in the town called Volcano.

Mike Poland, a geophysicist with the US Geological Survey, confirmed the explosion and said people needed to shelter in place.

The explosion at the mountain summit came shortly after 4 a.m. following two weeks of volcanic activity that sent lava flows into neighborhoods and destroyed at least 26 homes.

At this time, while unconfirmed, there is speculation that this is a phreatic eruption, which is capable of sending ash plumes as far off as 12 miles from the summit.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said at midday local time on Saturday that "eruptive activity is increasing and is expected to continue".

Cong meet Governor, submit list of 117 MLAs
Union minister Prakash Javadekar promptly dismissed the JD-S charge, calling it "imaginary". "We have no issue with the governor". Congress Karnataka unit president G Parmeshwara, however, reasserted that all the Congress MLAs were with the party.

A U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist described the pre-dawn explosive eruption at the summit of Kilauea as "short-lived" and not having a "widespread impact".

More than 1800 residents in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens had been ordered to leave their homes since Thursday, when public works officials first reported steam and lava erupting from fissures in a road, Ms Gabbard said.

Scientists Michelle Coombs said at a morning news conference at Hawaii County Civil Defense headquarters in Hilo that the event, which sent a cloud of ash and smoke up to 30,000 feet high, was "consistent with what we were thinking might happen".

"The resulting ash plume will cover the surrounding area".

Such eruptions, last seen almost a century ago, have been a looming threat since Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, erupted almost two weeks ago.

Officials in Hawaii say volcanic emissions from the summit at Kilauea volcano on the Big Island have decreased, prompting the cancellation of an ash fall advisory. The park has remained closed since May 11.
