Volcano watch

There is now a continuous emission of ash from the new gas vent in Halema`uma`u Crater in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The top of the ash plume, which is currently being blown to the southwest of the crater, reaches from a half mile to one mile above ground level.


The amount of lava erupted from the vent was small, but it represents the first lava erupted from anywhere in Halema`uma`u since 1982.
