Hawaii on 'Red Alert' After Huge Ash Cloud Bursts From Kilauea Volcano

Before-and-After Satellite Images Show Damage Caused By Lava From Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano

Since the Kilauea volcano erupted May 3, it's been one nightmare after another for residents in the southeast part of the Big Island.

The US Geographical Survey (USGS) has warned that the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii may become more explosive at "any time".

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) posted an aviation red alert for the first time for the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii as explosions intensified on Tuesday.

A spokesperson for the Island of Hawaii Visitors Bureau told Travel Agent the volcanic activity has resulted in zero hotel closings, mainly because the resort areas are located far from the Kilauea area.

People climb trees on the Volcano Golf and Country Club's 18th hole on Tuesday to view the plumes of smoke coming from the Halemaumau Vent of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii. Over the weekend, President Donald Trump declared a Hawaii a major disaster zone after days of volcanic activity on Hawaii Island.

On Monday, the Hawaii County Civil Defense issued a "condition red" alert for air quality around Lanipuna Gardens after a fissure opened up, releasing toxic gases.

So far, at least 37 structures - 28 of which are homes - have been destroyed by lava that shot more than 500 feet into the air.

The lava was moving at a rate of about 20 yards an hour, or.01 miles per hour, in the direction of the ocean, said the agency in a release. Lava has burst from 21 giant ground cracks or fissures and torn through housing developments and farmland, threatening two highways that are exit routes for coastal areas.

Fissure 17 is the most active, shooting lava like a fountain and "sending spatter more than 100 feet into the air", the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said.

Almost two weeks after the fissures began to open up, geologists continued to watch Kilauea's main crater amid the possibility that a violent eruption was coming.

Images of burning roadsides and choking ash plumes have filled social media, with NASA also posting satellites pictures online of the volcano from high above.
