  • Hawaii volcano plume reaches 15,000 ft

"Assuming you have a long enough stick, that is?"

The US Geological Survey has responded to a social media query asking whether it's safe to toast marshmallows over a volcanic vent. "(Please don't try!)", replied the USGS before delivering a little science. As lava rushed past the property, a USGS crew that was flying the drone used the aircraft to lead rescue teams to the stranded person. The USGS says marshmallows covered in these gases would taste really bad.

Additionally, a lava fountain rising out of the crack in the Earth was spraying more than 200 feet into the air, and multiple secondary fountains reached 60 feet.

Besides, adding sulfuric acid to sugar makes for what the USGS cryptically described as "a pretty spectacular reaction".

About 2,200 acres has been covered in lava since the Kilauea volcano eruptions began May 3, Magno said.

A new round of evacuation orders on Hawaii's big island have been issued as volcanic activity gets even more unsafe.

While eruptions continue at the main crater, Kilauea's lava flows have also proven extremely risky for bystanders and residents who refused to evacuate.

Lava flowing unchecked from the volcanic eruption on the Big Island of Hawaii has now destroyed 75 homes and has sent a volcanic haze all the way to Guam.

Mehana Kihoi hands out goods to Leilani Estate evacuees at the community organized Pu'uhonua o Puna, a center to help those affected by the recent lava eruption, in Pahoa, Hawaii, U.S., May 29, 2018.

The wells at the Puna Geothermal Venture site have been capped to prevent the release of toxic gas that can result from mixing with lava.

Residents fear the electrical plant's deep geothermal wells may be explosive. Hawaii County officials said lava destroyed the local electric utility's equipment on the highway, which knocked out power to Vacationland and Kapoho Beach Lots neighborhoods toward the coast.

Only one serious injury has been reported, after a man was hit by projectile molten rock as he sat on his balcony.
