HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 9:41 AM HST (Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 19:41 UTC)

Kīlauea Volcano Summit

Ash emission from the Overlook crater within Halemaumau has generally increased this morning compared to previous days. Although varying in intensity, at times the plume contains enough ash to be gray in color. The cloud is rising an estimated 3 to 4,000 feet above the ground, but altitudes are varying with pulses of emission. The ash cloud is drifting generally west and southwest from the Kilauea summit and ashfall is occurring in the Ka'u Desert. Communities downwind are likely to receive ashfall today and should take necessary precautions.

The National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement regarding ashfall, please see: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/hnl/

For information on the hazards of volcanic ash and how to prepare your home or business, please see: https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanic_ash/

Earthquake activity in the summit remains elevated with several strongly felt events at HVO today. Most of these earthquakes are related to the ongoing subsidence of the summit area and earthquakes beneath the south flank of the volcano.

URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Honolulu HI
109 PM HST Tue May 15 2018

...ASHFALL ADVISORY POSTED FOR KAU DISTRICT OF BIG ISLAND...

.Halemaumau Crater at the Kilauea Volcano continues to produce
significant amounts of ash in the emissions resulting in ashfall
occurring over the Kau District on the Big Island.

HIZ024-160400-
/O.NEW.PHFO.AF.Y.0001.180515T2309Z-180516T0400Z/
South Big Island-
109 PM HST Tue May 15 2018

...ASHFALL ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM HST THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued an Ashfall
Advisory, which is in effect until 6 PM HST this evening.

* ERUPTION...Kilauea Volcano Summit (19.4N 155.3W) at 100 PM HST.

* LOCATION...Volcanic ash is expected to reach the surface to the
southwest of the Kilauea Volcano Summit (Halemaumau Crater),
including cities of Wood Valley, Pahala, Punaluu, Naalehu, and
Hawaiian Oceanview Estates.

* IMPACTS...Possible harm to crops and animals. Minor equipment
and infrastructure damage. Widespread cleanup may be necessary.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Ashfall Advisory means that large amounts of ash will be
deposited in the advisory area. Persons with respiratory illnesses
should remain indoors to avoid inhaling the ash particles and all
persons outside should cover their mouth and nose with a mask or
cloth. For health and safety recommendations, please visit the
Hawaii Interagency Vog Information Dashboard at https://vog.ivhhn.org

&&


Oooh its gone to code RED now because of the aviation hazard.
https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/ki ... tatus.html

As of early this morning, eruption of ash from the Overlook vent within Halemaumau crater at Kilauea Volcano's summit has generally increased in intensity. Ash has been rising nearly continuously from the vent and drifting downwind to the southwest. Ashfall and vog (volcanic air pollution) has been reported in Pahala, about 18 miles downwind. NWS radar and pilot reports indicate the top of the ash cloud is as high as 10,000 to 12,000 feet above sea level, but this may be expected to vary depending on the vigor of activity and wind conditions.

Ash emission from the Kilauea summit vent will likely be variable with periods of increased and decreased intensity depending on the occurrence of rockfalls into the vent and other changes within the vent.

At any time, activity may become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent.

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 8:52 AM HST (Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 18:52 UTC)

Summary:

KILAUEA SUMMIT

Yesterday, ash emissions from the Overlook vent inside Halemaumau varied greatly in intensity with abrupt increases likely associated with large rockfalls deep into the vent. A number of these periods of increased ash emission sent plumes as high as 10,000 feet above sea level, with the cloud drifting downwind and dusting communities from Pahala to Discovery Harbor with ash. Yesterday's ash clouds were visible from many vantage points in east Hawaii. Because of the increase in ash emission and higher altitudes of ash, HVO assigned an aviation color code RED to indicated significant ash emission that is a hazard to aircraft. We are remaining at RED this morning anticipating further ash events which may continue for the foreseeable future. Communities downwind should expect intermittent ashfall.

This morning dense ballistic blocks up to 60 cm (2 feet) across were found in the parking lot a few hundred yards from Halemaumau. These reflect the most energetic explosions yet observed and could reflect the onset of steam-driven explosive activity. Further observations are necessary to asses this interpretation. Additional such explosions are expected and could be more powerful.

Seismicity and deformation continue at the Kilauea summit. Deflation is ongoing. Several strongly felt earthquakes have occurred over the past day, likely caused by ongoing deflation of the summit area. These are expected to continue.

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY INFORMATION STATEMENT
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 2:35 PM HST (Thursday, May 17, 2018, 00:35 UTC)

KĪLAUEA INFORMATION STATEMENT

Strong earthquakes within the summit of Kīlauea Volcano continue in response to ongoing deflation and lava column drop. As of the afternoon of May 16, the floor of Kīlauea caldera has dropped approximately 3 feet (90 cm). This movement is stressing faults around the caldera of Kilauea, causing them to move and resulting in strong earthquakes of up to magnitude 4.4 thus far.

Employees at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park and nearby residents are reporting frequent ground shaking and damage to roads and buildings. Hawaii County Police reports cracks across Highway 11 between mile markers 28 and 29. Although these are passable, motorists are urged to use caution.

As deflation continues, strong earthquakes in the area around Kilauea Volcano's summit are expected to continue and may become more frequent. Areas further from these earthquakes may feel some ground motion as well, but much less severe.

The shallow depths of these earthquakes make them more damaging in the immediate vicinity of the epicenter, and individuals need to take precautions to minimize damage from the shaking, including the removal of unstable items from walls and shelves. Steep slopes should be avoided as they may become destabilized during strong earthquakes


This thing is gonna blow. When the crater floor starts dropping its getting ready to go. Judging by the color of the column it looks like its been mostly steam all day which I would presume means water is entering the system.

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 4:47 PM HST (Thursday, May 17, 2018, 02:47 UTC)

Kīlauea Volcano Summit

Ash emission from the Overlook crater within Halema`uma`u has generally decreased since yesterday. Although varying in intensity, at times the plume contains enough ash to be gray in color. The cloud is rising an estimated 3 to 4,000 feet above the ground, but altitudes are varying with pulses of emission. The ash cloud is drifting slowly northward from the Kilauea summit and ashfall may occur in Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park and Volcano Village. Communities downwind may receive ashfall and should take necessary precautions.

Several magnitude 3 or stronger earthquakes occurred beneath the summit today. The earthquakes were at shallow depth and resulted in cracks in Highway 11 near the entrance to Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park. Some facilities within the National Park were damaged as well. The explosive eruption of 1924 at the Kilauea summit was also marked by hundreds of felt earthquakes as magma drained from the caldera.

The National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement regarding ashfall, please see: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/hnl/

One of the things I noticed a few days ago was that suddenly a Dr. Michelle Coombs was flown in from Alaska USGS for the daily 3 PM press conference. I wondered why and then I just saw this on her bio:

Recent and current research interests include (1) timing and generation of explosive silicic eruptions at Alaskan volcanoes

HVO/USGS Volcanic Activity Notice

Volcano: Kilauea (VNUM #332010)

Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING

Current Aviation Color Code: RED

Issued: Thursday, May 17, 2018, 6:33 AM HST
Source: Hawaiian Volcano Observatory

Volcanic Activity Summary: At about 0415 this morning, an explosion from the Overlook vent within Halemaumau crater at Kilauea Volcano's summit produced a volcanic cloud that reaches as high as 30,000 ft asl and drifted northeast. Continued emissions from the crater are reaching as high as 12,000 ft asl.

At any time, activity may again become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent.


Image

That window was clean as a whistle yesterday when the cam was set up.

Image

This is the first time on the webcam I've seen the entire crater filled with emissions.

That 30k ft cloud is higher than what they were giving out as reference to the 1924 eruption. Wow. Makes me wonder if the HVO has a fortified shelter on site the scientists can dive into for protection.

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
U.S. Geological Survey
Thursday, May 17, 2018, 10:40 AM HST (Thursday, May 17, 2018, 20:40 UTC)

Please see this new section of the HVO web site for information on the ongoing activity at Kilauea Volcano: https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatorie ... _2018.html

KILAUEA SUMMIT

Explosive eruption of ash this morning. Additional explosions possible at any time.

Just after 4 am this morning, an explosion or series of explosions from the Overlook vent within Halemaumau crater at Kilauea Volcano's summit produced a volcanic cloud that reached as high as 30,000 ft asl based on NWS radar information. The cloud drifted generally northeast and traces of ash fell with rain in the Volcano Golf Course, Volcano Village, and other areas immediately around the Kilauea summit.

At this time, based on HVO web cameras, a robust plume of gas, steam, and some ash is billowing out of the Overlook vent and drifting generally southwest.

At any time, activity may again become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles very near the vent. Communities downwind should be prepared for ashfall as long as this activity continues.

Resources on volcanic ash hazards and preparedness information: https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanic_ash/ OR http://www.ivhhn.org/ash-protection

Resources on vog: https://vog.ivhhn.org/

National Weather Service ashfall information and advisories: https://forecast.weather.gov/

Seismicity and deformation continue at the Kilauea summit. Deflation is ongoing. Additional earthquakes in the Kilauea summit area are expected as long as the summit continues to deflate.

Current webcam views are here: https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/ki ... bcams.html

View of this morning's eruption plume from the Overlook crater nearly an hour after the event started. This image is from the webcam located on the north rim of Moku‘āweoweo Caldera near the summit of Mauna Loa Volcano. This image was recorded at 5:10 a.m. HST. At about 04:15 a.m. HST, an explosion from the Overlook crater at Kīlauea Volcano's summit produced an eruption column that reached at least 30,000 ft. above sea level. The plume was blown by wind toward the northeast. This resulted in ash fall at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, and nearby Volcano Village and the Volcano Golf and Country Club Subdivsion.

#KilaueaVolcano
Halemaʻumaʻu Eruption LATEST (May 17 at 1:30 PM): New video from the "Gemini North Telescope" at Mauna Kea captured the moment this morning's plume billowed from Halemaʻumaʻu Crater. You can see lightning in the distance for several seconds, until the dark plume erupted into the sky. You can see the plume at approximately 39 seconds into the video, just before sunrise. It’s on the left of the hill in the foreground. USGS HVO scientists have confirmed that the massive gas and ash eruption from earlier today about 4:15 this morning was the water-driven explosion geologists have been worried could come from Halemaʻumaʻu Crater as a result of those declining lava lake levels and the potential that it would drop enough that magma would interact with the groundwater and send up a violent explosion. National Weather Service radar confirms it sent a gigantic plume of ash into the air at least 30,000 feet. Additional eruptions are possible today and officials say the explosions will likely happen with little to no warning. Stay tuned to @HawaiiNewsNow for the very latest developments #HInews #HawaiiNews #HNN #HawaiiNewsNow #WeAreYourSource

Pick the 16th and the view to the South. Did the ash seed that huge thunderhead later?
