Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii - John Seach

High levels of sulphur dioxide at Kilauea volcano in Hawaii have forced the closure of the summit area for the second time this month. About 2,000 people were forced to leave the park when a lack of wind kept gas from Halemaumau Crater at the summit. The evacuation included Volcano House hotel and the Kilauea Military Camp. No evacuations were ordered for communities outside the park, but residents from Volcano Golf and Country Club Estates experiencing respiratory problems should consider leaving the area.
