Hawaii volcano Kilauea erupts with 9000-meter ash plume

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has advised of an explosive eruption at Kilauea summit that occurred at 4:17 a.m.

Warnings that Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could shoot boulders and ash out of its summit crater are prompting people to rethink their plans to visit the Big Island.

Some Big Island residents had feared "the big one" after Kilauea shot anvil-sized "ballistic blocks" into the visitors' vehicle park on Wednesday and was rocked by earthquakes that damaged buildings and cracked roads in the park that was closed last week.

Mount Pinatubo last erupted in 1991, killing more than 350 people in what became the second-largest eruption of the 20th century.

The explosion did not pose an immediate threat to people in the vicinity, scientists said Thursday, but Mike Poland, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey who was based at Kilauea from 2005 to 2015, warned of more activity.

It comes after more than a dozen fissures recently opened miles to the east of the crater and spewed lava into neighbourhoods.

"We had prepared for the event", he said.

"I got the call to come out Monday morning", said Dennis Hoyt, who lives in Walsenbur.

Local volcano experts say Kilauea is following a well-established pattern of lava flows and both large and small explosions.

"I don't think there is a big one that's coming", said University of Hawaii vulcanologist Scott Rowland.

During the day, residents can hear a thick layer of lava crunching through the street as they walk through this neighborhood near the Big Island's eastern edge.

According to the publication, the eruption was accompanied by violent explosions that darkened the skies with ash and smoke.

Although she could not say with certainty, Coombs said that the event appeared consistent with the dropping lava lake hitting ground water, as geologists have been expecting. The plume of ash from the massive eruption is visible in the video above as a dark puff shooting up above the clouds near the end of the time-lapse sequence.

USGS geologists and staff were evacuated from the Kilauea summit shortly before the blast and a webcam showed a grey plume of ash and chunks of magma known as pyroclasts that showered the volcano's slopes.

HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, HI - MAY 15: A man drives a golf cart at a golf course as an ash plume rises in the distance from the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island on May 15, 2018 in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii. The lava flow which has traveled almost two miles from the fissure seems to have stopped moving for now, though more lava flows remain possible, and geologists warn that additional fissures could open up at any time.
