    4 Explosive eruption at Kilauea summit sends ash plume 30,000 feet into air

    http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/3...recent-ashfall

    PAHALA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

    An explosive eruption from Kilauea's summit on Thursday morning sent an ash plume soaring some 30,000 feet into the air, and officials are warning that ash emissions will cover a large part of the Big Island.

    The National Weather Service has issued an ashfall advisory after radar showed the massive plume.

    Hawaii Volcano Observatory officials confirmed that there was an explosive eruption at around 4:15 a.m., but still have yet to assess whether it was a steam-driven explosion that they have been warning residents about for several days.

    The explosive eruption happened a day after at least 125 shallow quakes rattled Kilauea's summit and neighboring communities, causing minor damage to roads and buildings amid growing concerns about a violent, steam-driven eruption at Halemaumau Crater.

    Michelle Coombs, of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said the situation remains "very, very active and very dynamic."

    She added, "The potential for larger explosions is still there."

    Geologists say the quakes are being caused by the ongoing deflation at the summit and as lava levels continue to decline. As of Wednesday afternoon, the floor of the Kilauea caldera has dropped about 3 feet.

    The strongest quake in the area was a magnitude 4.4, and dozens more have been upwards of magnitude 3.

    Because the tremors are shallow, they cause greater shaking — and increase the potential for damage.

    Employees at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory and nearby residents are reporting frequent shaking, and the quakes caused several large cracks on Highway 11 along with structural damage to buildings at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

    Also on Wednesday, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said rocks up to 2 feet wide were hurled from the crater to a parking lot hundreds of yards away.

    The "ballistic" rocks "reflect the most energetic explosions yet observed and could reflect the onset of steam-driven explosive activity. Additional such explosions are expected and could be more powerful," officials said.

    Scientists have warned that eruptions at the summit could send heavy ashfall across communities near the summit and toss boulders "the size of cows" as far as a half a mile. Given the threat, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park remains closed, and civil defense officials are urging those who live near the crater to remain vigilant.

    The news comes amid worsening air quality conditions on the Big Island, and as civil defense authorities continue to respond to Kilauea's ongoing eruptions in lower Puna, where thousands of people remain under mandatory evacuation orders.

    Forecasters are warning residents that ashfall remains a threat, especially across the Ka'u District.

    Thick vog (volcanic haze) is also impacting parts of the island. Authorities said the thicker vog posed no immediate threat, but that officials would continue to monitor the situation.

    And more than 20 miles away in lower Puna, along Kilauea's east rift zone, hazardous fumes and lava are continuing to pour from active fissures. In the southeast area of the Lanipuna Gardens subdivision and surrounding farm lots, the air quality level remains at condition "red," which means anyone in the area is in immediate danger. Mandatory evacuation orders remain in place for communities along with neighboring Leilani Estates.

    On Tuesday, thick, dark columns of ash poured from Halemaumau Crater, extending up to 12,000 feet above sea level and dropping ash as far as 18 miles downwind.

    Dramatic images showed large plumes looming over the Volcano Golf Course. In Pahala, residents reported heavy vog and significant ashfall.

    Emissions waxed and waned overnight, and authorities were able to cancel an ashfall advisory about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Forecasters warned, however, light ashfall and hazardous air conditions will continue.

    Bob Ballard, of the National Weather Service, said the breezy trade winds on Tuesday were pushing the ash and plume onto the southwest region, but the lighter winds on Wednesday kept it from spreading.

    "It depends on how big the explosive eruption is, if there is one," he said. "We'll be keeping an eye on that to see how tall it gets because winds will change with height."

    Scientists have been warning residents for days about the threat of explosive, steam-induced eruptions at the summit crater.

    The last time such eruptions happened was nearly a century ago, when shooting debris killed one and left a layer of ash over homes and cars.

    In 1924, explosive events at the summit lasted for two and a half weeks and ash may have reached as high as 20,000 feet above sea level. Small amounts of fine ash fell as far as lower Puna and Waiohinu.

    Researchers don't know when the explosive activity will occur, how large the explosions could be or how long they'd last.

    But they warn that as fissures continue to open in Puna and lava travels downslope toward the sea, the chance for "explosive eruptions" at Halemaumau Crater on the summit of the volcano will continue to rise.

    That's because a lava lake at the summit is dropping. When it hits the level of the water table beneath the Kilauea caldera, the influx of water into the conduit could trigger steam-driven eruptions, geologists said.

    "If an explosion happens, there's a risk at all scales. If you're near the crater within a half a mile or so, then you would be subject to a bombardment by ballistic blocks weighing as much as 10 or 12 tons," said Don Swanson, of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

    "If you're within several miles of the summit of the volcano, of the lava lake, then you would be subject to falls of marble sized rocks, ash, finer grain material. and if you're beyond that say you're 10 miles, 15, 20 downwind, you could experience fine ash floating from the sky like snow."

    The plumes that were emitting from the crater through Tuesday weren't from an eruption, however. Geologists say they were likely being created by rockfalls in the crater and gas explosions, though there's no way to confirm that.

    On Monday, when the plume was much less intense, residents in Ka'u said the increased activity at the summit already had them feeling sick. Several residents have reported having headaches, sore throats, and watery eyes as a result of ashfall.

    "I do have neighbors and friends and family and it has created more problems for them," said Jessie Marques, a Pahala resident. "Now they tend to stay indoors ... it has created a breathing problem for them."

    Marques, who has asthma, says that the heightened sulfur dioxide levels and ash particles has complicated her health.

    "I have asthma and (the volcanic activity) has exacerbated it, but I'm taking more of my medication and I'm taking care," Marques said.

    Residents also reported ash coating their cars, decks and buildings as a result of recent volcanic activity. County officials went door-to-door Monday to hand out information about the ashfall and ways for residents to protect themselves from hazardous fumes and ash.

    "There was really a thick layer of dust on our cars, and on our decks, and such so you can see and feel it," Marques added. "It's like black, grimy soot."

    The estimated plume from the 1924 event was 12,500 to 20,000 feet. So this event today would be considered significant.

    I doubt this is the end of explosive events for Hawaii

    Usually, when I see this volcano referenced it is always mentioned how "slow moving" and "relatively safe" it is.

    Many decades ago the radio station in Jackson Mississippi used to mock the local river (which was usually a trickle) by calling it:

    "The Mighty Pearl at Jackon" (Pearl River).

    Then one Christmas vacation it rained, and it rained and it rained; it ultimately flooded most of the city; I saw much of with my own eyes when a week later we were in one of the first cars allowed through with water coming all the way to both sides of the freeway.

    The Gas station we intended to use was ten miles outside the city and was totally underwater - our driver pulled over and started to cry.

    Someone said; "this is what happens when you mock a river or disparage nature, their revenge may not be pretty."

    I don't think this current situation is revenge exactly; the mountain is respected and in some cases even worshiped by locals; but they understand its power and I'm not sure the rest of the world did, at least not until now.

    A Volcano is a Volcano; awake or sleeping they are far beyond humans in terms of what they will do or not do; and we humans can only marvel at them and get out of their way when they get excited.

    They refer to him as the lava rooster. There are t-shirts already available online.

    I think there has been a lot of BS spread about this eruption.

    First, it is simply fear mongering and doom porn to say there will be a tsunami caused by that chunk of rock sliding into the sea. There will be no "100 foot high tidal wave," hitting Los Angeles. It isn't going to happen because there is NO historical data indicating that such a tsunami is possible.

    the link is here where Dutch Sinse goes off on the tsunami mongers.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISpY1NiuOt4

    here is a link to Dutch's latest update.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPJY6WY2LyQ

    Next, we are seeing an "eruptive event." Again, this happens, historically speaking, in Hawaii from time to time. I will also note all volcanic activity is confined to the southern half of the "Big Island." This means all the other islands in Hawaii, including Oahu and every single one of the rest HAS NO VOLCANIC ACTIVITY AT ALL GOING ON. Ergo, you can fly into Oahu, go to the Arizona memorial and not be covered by volcanic ash.

    Finally, the immediate zone where you might get hit by a rock exploding out of the volcano is about 5 miles. Again, the VAST MAJORITY of the "Big Island," isn't under any kind of "threat." Granted, if you are near the various housing developments and estates, you will have to deal with the now 20 plus fissures, shooting rocks and lava flow. Unless the ground opens up under you, or you fall into the fissure, much like Gollum on Mount Doom, you are under no threat.

    Now that the "big" eruption has happened, shooting an ash cloud some 30,000 feet in the air, combined with the first one that shot ash 12,000 feet into the air, we may face a third, or fourth, or fifth, eruption over the next few days/weeks. Again, due to the current wind direction, WHICH IS SENDING THE ASH CLOUDS OUT OVER THE SEA, even that isn't going to be a big deal. I mean, the city of HILO, on the northwest side of the island isn't dealing with inches of ash, which Portland, Oregon was after the 1980 Mount Saint Helen's eruption.

    All in all, this volcano on the Big Island isn't much of a threat to anybody who isn't a COMPLETE MORON and taking selfies ten feet away from an active fissure.

    Yep, the coverage represents both the best and the worst in humans. The worst is the hysterical, breathless bs leading to fear by people who aren't in danger. The best is we are getting live video, and competent discussions of what is really happening, versus the breathless, "we are all going to die," mode.

    Again, while the fissures, shooting rocks, and lava flow may continue for some time, I seriously doubt that people are going to die. Of course, if you are taking a selfie, right next to an open fissure, you may get a Darwin Award.

    We may see more earthquakes around the other two volcanoes, and if we do I will modify my "it's no big deal," attitude. As of now, it really is not a direct threat to people, nor are we looking at 100,000 people dying.

    Finally, took almost three hours to issue a statement.

    A statement that doesn't really say anything that hasn't already been reported or offer specific guidance to the general public.

    Nice work!
    -------------
    East Rift Zone Eruption Update #2 051718 7am

    This is a Civil Defense Message for Thursday, May 17 at 7 a.m.

    The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has advised of an explosive eruption at Kilauea summit that occurred at 4:17 a.m. This eruption is generating an ash plume as high as 25,000 feet. The resulting ash plume may affect the surrounding areas. The wind may carry the ash plume north towards Kau, Volcano, Mt. View, Kea’au and as far as Hilo. National Weather Service has issued an ashfall advisory until 12 p.m.

    Due to elevated sulfur dioxide (S02) levels, Pahoa High, Intermediate, and Elementary School Complex, Keonepoko Elementary, Hawaii Academy of Arts and Science, Volcano School of Arts and Science will be closed.

    County, State and Federal partners continue to monitor the situation. You will be informed of any conditions that affect your safety.

    Mount Saint Helen's sent a volcanic plume some 60,000 feet into the air, ie some 12 MILES HIGH. In context, this is a medium eruption, which followed a smaller one, ie the 12,000 feet high one the other day.

    It is certainly possible that we will get several more eruptions over the next few hours/days/weeks.

    It is the historical pattern in Hawaii for lava flow to continue for quite some time. We could be looking at new fissures opening, then closing, then opening again for another few weeks. I understand that out of the now 20 fissures, several of them have closed, then reopened and spurted rocks and lava, and then closed again.

    Since it happened at 4:30 or so in the morning, wouldn't that pic be from the other day?

    When I hear chickens and roosters it immediately takes me back to my years in HI. I love to hear them.

    Thanks for catching that! I thought I had the date and time right.

    On another note

    #UPDATE @USGSVolcanoes : "Continued emissions from the crater are reaching as high as 12,000 ft asl. At any time, activity may again become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent. "

    I know many people are saying this isn’t a big deal because it wasn’t a St Helens. I don’t think many thought this would be a St Helens since they are a different kind of volcano. That was well documented in the beginning of this thread.

    It is still a very interesting event for many if you study this type of earth science.

    It’s also still a big deal to locals. The ash fall probably will be limited on this event since it was raining when it happened. That is a good thing.

    I don’t think this is anywhere near over but this might have been the largest explosive eruption this event might have.

    Only time will tell.

    Would I be right then--in assuming---that within that 20-mile radius---any ANIMALS (wild or domestic) that couldn't get out---are now dead or dying???

    Good chance of it and you might include humans that refused to evac. They will now become artifacts should the lava pour over them. Volcanoes don't care.

    I've been monitoring the #Hawaii twitter, and it turns out there are quite a few different organizations that are helping rescue animals.

    Here's one:

    Some perspective is needed here. Previous eruptions have taken out whole civilizations in the distant past.

    In more recent times, the most disruptive eruption was in Iceland which screwed up air travel over large swaths of Europe.

    In terms of destruction combined with disruption;

    Mount St. Helens – Washington state, United States – 1980
    Mount Pinatubo – Luzon, Philippines – 1991
    Calbuco Volcano – Puerto Varas, Chile – 2015

    Sure the Hawaiian eruption is interesting, but folks need some perspective here.
    Facts?? We don't need no stinkin facts...

    Very cool slow-mo 5 minute video of lava spattering from fissure 17

    Sounds like many members lived there or have family there. I have family there. So it's sort of personal, and understandable if many are paying close attention.
