..TRACE ASHFALL POSSIBLE FROM KILAUEA VOLCANO...

Occasional small bursts of volcanic ash may emanate from 
Halemaumau Crater (19.4N 155.3W). These bursts may be brief and 
could occur at multiple times. Low level winds would tend to push
any ash clouds toward the southwest. Most ash fallout would remain
mainly over the Kau district and Highway 11 to the southwest of 
the town of Volcano.

Hawaii Volcano Observatory reports that additional explosions are
possible at any time with little warning. If this occurs, an 
Ashfall Advisory or Warning would likely be necessary.

Avoid excessive exposure to ash which is an eye and respiratory
irritant. Those with respiratory sensitivities should take extra
precaution to minimize exposure. 

For more information on the status of Kilauea Volcano, please see

Interagency Vog Information Dashboard at https://vog.ivhhn.org
