Dramatic Developments at Kilauea Volcano

Explosive eruptions and noxious gas emissions at Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii have prompted scientists to work around the clock to understand what will happen next and how to keep the public out of harms way. Scientists are monitoring gas emissions and seismic activity at Kilauea, which on March 19 experienced its first explosive eruption since 1924. The volcano is also emitting sulfur dioxide at toxic levels. The USGS is issuing frequent updates, which can be accessed at http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/kilauea/. To listen to a podcast interview with USGS Volcano Hazards Program Coordinator John Eichelberger describing the activity at Kilauea, visit http://www.usgs.gov/corecast/.
