Hawaii volcano eruption
- Release on :2018-5-16
On the 15th, U.S. Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano erupted a giant volcanic ash cloud, which caused a sharp drop in air quality, or caused people to suffer from suffocation and other respiratory problems. The Hawaiian government issued a red alert warning of poor air quality and possible major outbreaks of Kilauea Volcano.
The Hawaii County Civil Defence Bureau stated that the rockfall and gas eruption at one of the craters on the Kilauea volcano created a volcanic ash cloud, which is currently drifting southwest downwind. The Hawaii authorities stated that volcanic ash clouds were as high as 3,000 to 3,600 meters, and they therefore issued a red alert.
