Toxic gas warning in Hawaii

And as soon as the lava drops beneath the water desk, water hits rocks which can be as scorching as almost 2,200 levels (1,200 Celsius) and flashes into steam.

These plagues sound nearly biblical in their frequency and fury.

"I'm not too anxious about it because I've lived here so long and I've seen it go through lots of different episodes", Hughes said.

- Kilauea, one of the most active volcanos in the world and one of five on the island, began erupting on May 3rd, 2018.

Officials stress residents of the Kilauea summit area should learn about the hazards of ashfall, stay informed about the status of the volcano and area closures, and review family and business emergency plans.

Scientists worry Kilauea volcano could soon send boulders and ash shooting out of its summit crater.

We could see even larger explosions and columns of ash over the coming weeks, the US Geological Survey says. At the moment, that lake of super-hot molten rock is dropping.

The USGS issued an ominous warning Wednesday about Kilauea.

Additional funds are needed to address the permanent damage the volcanic activity and earthquakes have caused, he added. But bigger blasts could be in store. When it hits the level of the water table beneath the Kilauea caldera, likely sometime mid-month, the influx of water into the conduit could trigger steam-driven eruptions, geologists said.

This isn't the first time that explosions have rocked the summit.

How it impacts people: If there's enough of it, it could make daytime seem like night. However the ashfall could prove problematic. "All that's possible. It's hard to say, unfortunately". Those would be trouble.

The volcano then could eject "ballistic rocks" of lava up to several feet in diameter, the USGS said. The huge boulders could travel more than a half-mile.

Park officials say they fear a once-in-a-century steam explosion inside of Halemaumau Crater.

Volcanoes National Park was closed on Friday and remains closed indefinitely because of the threat and scientists think conditions could be right for a major explosion within a few days.

If it happens, a summit blast could also release steam and sulfur dioxide gas. When rain falls through sulfur dioxide gas, some of the gas dissolves in the raindrops forming a sulfuric acid - hence acid rain.

High levels of acidic particles in vog "can induce asthma attacks, especially in adolescents, and can also impede the ability of the upper respiratory tract to remove other potentially harmful particles", the USGS says. It's very sad, people are leaving the island.

A 15th vent formed Wednesday in the nearby community of Lanipuna.

The volcano has been spluttering lava for more than a week and has forced around 2,000 people from their homes and destroyed 36 structures, including 26 homes.
