Hawaii Volcano Eruption and aftermath; dramatic visuals inside

Hawaii Volcano Eruption and aftermath; dramatic visuals insideā€

On May 3, the Kilauea volcano erupted forcing almost 2,000 people out of their homes and destroying dozens of buildings. The agency released numerous images on Monday that showed the movement of the lava as it seeps into new areas.

"Because the lava intrusion is still active and earthquakes are still occurring, we still think there's a decent chance of new eruptive activity at the surface", Steven Brantley said. Red regions represent vegetation, and gray and black zones mark older lava flows.

"We've got all the warning signs we need", said Steve Brantley, the deputy scientist-in-charge for the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory HVO, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports.

In Kabul attacked police stations
After an easing of attacks in Kabul in February, Taliban and IS militants have stepped up assaults in the city in recent months. Asam, the head of the Kabul ambulance service, who only has one name, said six people have been transferred to hospitals.

"Earthquake activity in the summit remains elevated with several felt events at Hawaii Volcano Observatory (HVO) today". The resulting explosion can blast rock and ash for miles. Ige expects the estimated fix costs from the Kilauea volcano to exceed $2.9 million over the next month. Lava flows from the volcano, one of five on the island, have buried an area about 125 square kilometers, according to the USGS.

President Trump on Friday declared a major disaster on the Big Island. It could generate ash plumes as high as 20,000 feet, which would affect the area of up to 12 miles.

The subdivisions of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens are under mandatory evacuations, with residents describing fissures in the streets emitting steam or lava.

Elon Musk accepts his move to snub Tesla analysts was 'foolish'
To a question about the Tesla Model 3, which has had a slower-than-expected rollout, Musk replied: "These questions are so dry". Musk turned to Twitter this Friday to defend his behavior that had caused a 5% dip in the share value of Tesla .

As a precaution, plant workers this week removed 50,000 gallons of pentane stored at the site. The USGS reported a shallow but small quake with a magnitude of 3.5 hit the island on Saturday.

The Hawaii National Guard is prepared, with only 90-minutes notice, to rescue some 2,000 people by ground convoy in troop-carrying vehicles and, if necessary, in Blackhawk or Chinook helicopters. The move will make federal financial assistance available to state and local governments as they fix roads, public parks, schools and water pipes damaged by the eruption.
