Hawaii volcano could begin period of violent eruptions VOA News
Published on May 17, 2018
Explosions in Kilauea's crater, one of the world's most active volcanoes, that erupted nearly two weeks ago sparked an aviation red alert due to risks the ash plume could blow into aircraft routes and damage jet engines.
More explosions are expected and may be more powerful, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) warned.
These steam-driven blasts could send a 20,000-foot (6,100-meter) ash plume out of the crater, hurling 10-12-ton boulders up to half a mile (800 meters) and scatter pebble-sized rocks over 12 miles (19 km), the USGS has said.
This type of eruption has the potential to carpet the Big Island in much thicker ash than current dustings and possibly spread the powder and volcanic smog across the Hawaiian Islands and farther afield if it enters the stratosphere.

Lava from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano lit up the night on Tuesday (May 22) VOA News
Published on May 23, 2018
Kilauea's 19-day eruption showed no sign of easing, with repeated explosions at its summit and fountains of lava up to 160 feet (50 m) from giant cracks or fissures on its flank.
Lava edged towards a geothermal power plant on Tuesday after destroying an old warehouse near the facility, County of Hawaii Civil Defense said.
Workers at the closed Puna Geothermal Venture, which provided around 25 percent of electricity on Hawaii's Big Island, worked to cap the last of three pressurized wells to reduce the risk of an uncontrolled release of toxic gases should they be inundated by lava.
An explosive eruption at the Kilauea summit at 3:45 a.m. (9:45 a.m. EST) sent ash to a height of 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) over Hawaii's Big Island, civil defense said. Communities southwest of the summit were dusted with ash, according to National Weather Service meteorologist John Bravender.
