Hawaii volcano update: 270 earthquakes in ONE day – latest pictures and USGS quake map

MOUNT Kilauea is showing no signs of letting up, as Big Island continues to feel the destructive fury of the volcano. With 270 earthquakes recorded yesterday in just 24 hours, here is the latest on Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Bravender said that the flurry of earthquakes caused four massive explosions from the volcano’s summit, sending ash clouds up to 4,500 metres into the atmosphere.

Winds are set to shift on Monday and Tuesday, causing higher concentrations of ash and volcanic smog – ‘vog’ – that will spread west and northwest to affect more populated areas, Bravender said.
