Detailed Description

View of the ash plume from Halemauamu from the Mauna Loa web cam at 5:10 a.m. HST. At about 04:15 a.m. HST, an explosion from the Overlook vent within Halemaumau crater at Kīlauea Volcano's summit produced a volcanic cloud that reached as high as 30,000 ft. and drifted northeast. This activity has produced a substantial ash fall at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory and a minor ash fall in the Volcano Village and in the Golf Course Subdivsion about a mile away from the crater. At any time, activity may again become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent.
