Explosive eruption at Hawaii volcano

Summit of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano erupts sending plume of ash and smoke 30,000 feet high

Hawaiian officials are now warning those on the Big Island in the path of the ash plume to seek shelter as the ash above Kilauea moves southeast with the wind.

The crater sits within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which has been closed since May 11 in preparation for an eruption.

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has erupted from its summit, shooting a dusty plume of ash about 30,000 feet into the sky.

Eruptive fissures from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano have been spreading lava through parts of Leilani Estates near Pahoa since the start of May.

The crater first erupted almost two weeks ago and has forced the evacuation of some 2,000 residents. Gen. Kenneth Hara announced he is preparing to potentially evacuate an extra 1,000 people from the Puna area on Big Island.

Karnataka: BJP MLAs elect Yeddyurappa leader of its legislative party
One of the BJP MLAs had said Yeddyurappa will take oath as chief minister on Thursday, much before it was confirmed officially. He argued that the matter should not have been heard at this hour and it was "absolutely wrong" to do so.

"This morning dense ballistic blocks up to 60 cm across were found in the parking lot a few hundred yards from Halemaumau (Kilauea's crater)", the USGS said in a statement.

Hara says there are now about 1,200 soldiers and nine UH-60 helicopters now training on the Big Island.

"Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that an Explosive Eruption at Kilauea's Summit has occurred", County of Hawaii Civil Defense said in a phone alert.

There was no effect on air carrier operations to Hawaii on Wednesday, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said in an email.

A column of ash from the Kilauea volcano towers over the Big Island of Hawaii on May 15, 2018. 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. Almost 40 structures have been destroyed as a result of the eruptions, but no deaths or injuries have been reported.
