Kīlauea Volcano — Ash Falls onto Kau Desert

Ash plume rising from a crater

Detailed Description

At 1:38 p.m. HST, ash falls from the plume southwest from Halema‘uma‘u crater onto the Kau desert. The northeast tradewinds were persistent today at the summit of Kīlauea Volcano, so ash was only blown southwest.
