Nature in the USA: The best shots of the volcano eruption in Hawaii – News abroad

Two and a half years was quiet. But since Sunday evening things have been hot again on Hawaii’s largest island, the Big Island! Volcano eruption!

People have been watching the spectacle since then, but fortunately no one has been harmed so far. The areas threatened by the lava are not inhabited. Nevertheless, there are many spectacular shots of Brodel Mountain, Kilauea!

The eruption began inside the volcanic basin: Molten rock hurled from at least two chimneys on the summit crater. This was announced by the US earthquake monitoring station USGS. Red clouds of steam now rise again and again in the night sky.

The USGS warned that a lot of volcanic ash could enter the atmosphere. Planes should fly around the Kilauea area.

The US weather service warned that the wind could carry the ashes to villages in the southwest of the island. People with respiratory problems should take “special precautions”. Shortly after the eruption, the USGS registered a 4.4 magnitude earthquake near the volcano.

► Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and a popular tourist destination. It has been erupting regularly since the 1950s. In 2014 Big Island declared a state of emergency because lava from Kilauea threatened the village of Pahoa on the eastern tip of the island. Today lava fields run through parts of the place.
