Explosive eruptions continue to produce plumes of ash at Kilauea's summit crater

Explosions continue at the summit of Kilauea, prompting authorities to warn area residents about the threat of ashfall.

The latest eruption at Halemaumau Crater happened around 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, creating an ash plume that was about 8,000 feet above sea level. They also warned that the wind may carry the plume to the southwest.

Hours earlier, around 8 p.m. Monday, another "very small" explosion occurred. But earlier in the day, about 6 p.m., a more sizable explosion rocked the summit.

And well before dawn, about 12:55 a.m., a large eruption sent an ash plume 7,000 feet above sea level.
