Giant rocks spewing from Hawaii volcano summit

  HONOLULU --- Ash emissions from the summit at Hawaii's Kilauea volcano decreased, prompting the cancellation on Wednesday of an ash fall advisory.   There are occasional bursts of ash coming from the crater, causing ash to fall downwind to several communities, though there are only trace amounts, said the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.   Ash plumes on Tuesday had spouted as high as 12,000 feet (3,657 meters) into the air, scientists said.   These plumes are separate from the lava eruptions happening about 40 kilometers (25 miles) away from the summit, where about 20 lava fissures have destroyed more than two dozen homes and forced the evacuat...Keep on reading: Giant rocks spewing from Hawaii volcano summit.....»»

Hawaii volcano raises concerns of eruptions along West Coast

SPOKANE, Washington, United States --- The eruption of a Hawaii volcano in the Pacific "Ring of Fire" has experts warily eyeing volcanic peaks on America's West Coast that are also part of the geologically active region. The West Coast is home to an 800-mile (1,300-kilometer) chain of 13 volcanoes, from Washington state's Mount Baker to California's Lassen Peak. They include Mount St. Helens, whose spectacular 1980 eruption in the Pacific Northwest killed dozens of people and sent volcanic ash across the country, and massive Mount Rainier, which towers above the Seattle metro area. "There's lots of anxiety out there," said Liz Westby, geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey Cas...Keep on reading: Hawaii volcano raises concerns of eruptions along West Coast.....»»

Hawaii officials encourage tourist to visit, despite volcanic eruption

VOLCANO, Hawaii --- Hawaii tourism officials are hoping Kilauea's eruption won't deter travelers from visiting the state's largest island, even as geologists warn the volcano could soon shoot large boulders out of its summit. Travel industry executives note most of the Big Island is free of eruption threats from Kilauea, which began spurting lava into a residential neighborhood last week. George Szigeti, CEO of the Hawaii Tourism says Kilauea is being monitored constantly and says the Big Island is "immense" and there are large parts that are unaffected by the volcano. The eruption didn't stop Matthew and Angelina Coney, who flew in for their honeymoon even though the lava o...Keep on reading: Hawaii officials encourage tourist to visit, despite volcanic eruption.....»»

Cleanup no match to ‘traveling’ trash on Legazpi beach, rivers

LEGAZPI CITY --- Below the "Legazpi" signage on the boulevard that offers a breathtaking view of Mayon volcano is a shoreline that remains dirty despite repeated community cleanup drives. Residents believe that garbage strewn on the beach "traveled" from the adjacent town of Daraga through the Macabalo and Sagumayon rivers. Resident Sipolito Biobo said stench from decaying animals on the beach was carried by "amihan" (cool northeast wind) to houses at Barangay Puro from September to December. In summer, "habagat" (southwest monsoon wind) pushes waves to carry much of the trash further out to sea, residents said. According to Nicasio Barrios, village chief of Puro, city go...Keep on reading: Cleanup no match to ‘traveling’ trash on Legazpi beach, rivers.....»»

Some calming of Hawaii volcano, but scientists remain wary

PAHOA, Hawaii --- The number of homes destroyed by lava shooting out of openings in the ground created by Hawaii's Kilauea volcano climbed to five as some of the more than 1,700 people who evacuated prepared for the possibility they may not return for quite some time.
