An ash plume from Halemaumau crater filled the skies above Highway 11 on Tuesday. The forboding plumes erupt from the crater, located within the Kilauea caldera at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, when rocks drop into the lava and explode from the intense heat.
Tradewinds this morning blew the ash generally to the southwest toward the Kau Desert. The dark area to the right of the ash column rising from the Overlook crater is ash falling from the ash cloud to the ground.
A plume could be seen from the Volcano Golf Course in Volcano, Hawaii. This view is nearly due north of the Halemaumau plume.
