La impactante erupción del volcán Kilauea | Más de 2 mil personas fueron evacuadas como consecuencia de la furiosa erupción en la isla de Hawái, Estados Unidos. La agencia de Defensa Civil de Hawái advirtió sobre las nubes tóxicas de "laze", una combinación de "lava" y "haze" (neblina). El "laze" contiene partículas de cristal fino y ácido clorhídrico lo que puede ocasionar problemas en las vías respiratorias. #kilauea#hawaii#volcan
Kīlauea Volcano — Overflight of Fissure 20 Complex
This astonishing overflight footage shows fissure fountains feeding lava flows in the Fissure 20 complex on May 21, 2018, around 7:20 AM, HST. The video concludes with a view of the bifurcating lava channels that merge closer to the coast (and split again before ocean entry). ▫️
The white laze plume is the site of ocean entry. Laze (a blending of both ‘lava’ and ‘haze’) is formed through a serious of chemical reactions as hot lava boils seawater to dryness. The plume is an irritating mixture of hydrochloric acid gas (HCl), steam, and tiny volcanic glass particles which, even on the wispy edges of the plume, can cause skin and eye irritation, breathing difficulties, and in some case death. In addition, acid rain from the plume has a pH between 1.5 and 3.5, and has the corrosive properties of dilute battery acid.

Eruptions from fissures caused by the Kilauea volcano are sending "lava bombs" into nearby homes and structures, as seen in this recent video from @usgs and @cnn, respectively. The volcano on Hawaii continues to erupt for a third week, creating hazardous environmental conditions across the island. #ktla#kilaueavolcano#hawaii
So this is 40...I am truly blessed to have the best little family, the best hubby, the best job, the best neighbors, the best co-workers, great health, great friends and the list could go on! I am not sure what I was so worried about. I think 40 may be the best year yet! #21daysofturning20x2#maui#hawaii#lovinglife
