More evacuations ordered in Hawaii as volcano activity intensifies

More evacuations ordered in Hawaii as volcano activity intensifies

A 4.4 magnitude natural disaster at the volcano's summit today prompted County of Hawaii Civil Defense to reassure the island's 200,000 residents that there was no risk of a tsunami. Lava continued to enter the Pacific Ocean near MacKenzie State Park. According to the USGS, an average of two large explosions a day are sending ash as high as 10,000 feet above sea level, though smaller emissions of ash occur more often. Moderate trade winds were blowing to the southwest at the time, and light ash fell in downwind locations.

With infrared imagery, healthy vegetation appears in shades of red; active burning lava appears in bright orange or yellow, and cooled lava and burned vegetation are black.

The oozing lava has destroyed 82 structures on the Big Island, and another 37 structures have become inaccessible in the last days, said Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno.

A rising ash plume from Halema'uma'u, a crater at the summit of Kilauea, is seen from the caldera rim near Volcano House in Hawaii, U.S. May 24, 2018. Three weeks into the volcano's eruption, scientists said the summit is still too unsafe to survey on foot. Earthquakes in the summit area continue at a moderate rate, as does deflation of the summit region, both of which reflect the withdrawal of magma from the summit. "You take care of each other".

The homes are still there today, thanks to Clinton's efforts, he said. "It stands because he believed he could save it, and that's it".

Clinton has had at least three surgeries and is in Honolulu for another.
