Hawaiians have been given face masks and told to take shelter after scientists warned the Kilauea volcano, which has destroyed homes, could become more violent within hours.
Hawaii's Kilaueavolcanoerupted on Thursday, sending ash 30,000 feet (9,144 meters) into the sky.
Dina Shisler, leader of a Community Emergency Response Team distributing "N95" particulate masks in Naalehu and Pahala, said residents downwind of Kilauea are anxious, with many wearing surgical masks as a precaution - although state Department of Health nurse Deborah Brown emphasized that such masks are no substitute for the dust masks distributed at the station.
Geophysicist with the US Geological Survey (USGS) Mike Poland said the explosion probably lasted only a few minutes and the ash accumulations were minimal, with only trace amounts expected near the volcano.
This is because Kilauea is a so-called shield volcano, which is typically broader in shape and has lava that is relatively fluid.
Volcanologists aren't expecting Kilauea's eruptions to be almost as risky, but they could still pose a threat. A number of vehicles and 37 homes have been destroyed.
