Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii - John Seach

Ash emissions are occurring from a small vent at Halema`uma`u crater, Kilauea volcano. This follows an explosion which occurred at the crater on the 19th March. The current explosive activity at the summit of Kilauea is the first in 84 years. Sulfur dioxide emissions are above background levels in the summit area. Crater Rim Drive remains closed between Kilauea Military Camp and Chain of Craters Road, due to high gas emissions and the possibility of further explosions. Lava continues to enter the sea at two locations (Waikupanaha and Ki) at Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii.
