    Which is why we need 10 year moratorium on ALL immigration.

    Stop bringing people here and start deporting.

    No 12-18 month extensions!!!

    We have our own natural disasters to pay for and displaced people to take care of!

    SEND ALL VISA OVERSTAY'S REFUGEES, TPS, ILLEGAL ALIENS AND ASYLUM LIARS HOME!

    'Ballistic blocks' shot from Hawaii volcano could mark onset of explosive eruptions

    By Terray Sylvester

    PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) - "Ballistic blocks" the size of microwave ovens shot from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano on Wednesday in what may be the start of explosive eruptions that could spew huge ash plumes and hurl smaller rocks for miles (km), the U.S. Geological Survey said.

    Such eruptions, last seen nearly a century ago, have been a looming threat since Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, erupted nearly two weeks ago.

    The explosive, steam-driven eruptions could drive a 20,000-foot (6,100-meter) ash plume out of the crater, hurl boulders the size of small cars up to half a mile (800 meters) and scatter smaller rocks over 12 miles (19 km), the USGS has warned.


    This type of eruption has the potential to carpet the Big Island in much thicker ashfalls than those up to now and possibly spread ash and volcanic smog across the Hawaiian islands and farther afield if it enters the stratosphere.


    "This morning dense ballistic blocks up to 60 cm (2 feet) across were found in the parking lot a few hundred yards (meters) from Halemaumau (Kilauea's crater)," the USGS said in a statement. "These reflect the most energetic explosions yet observed and could reflect the onset of steam-driven explosive activity."


    The USGS cautioned that "additional such explosions are expected and could be more powerful."


    A 4.2 magnitude earthquake at the volcano at 8.36 a.m. (2.36 p.m. ET) prompted authorities to issue an alert reassuring rattled Big Island residents that there was no risk of a tsunami from the volcanic activity.


    Smog from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano drifted north up the island chain after communities south of its summit were warned of up to a quarter-inch (0.6 cm) of ashfall as the nearly two-week eruption intensified.


    Explosions in Kilauea's crater sparked an aviation red alert due to risks ash could blow into aircraft routes and damage jet engines.


    There was no effect on air carrier operations to Hawaii on Wednesday, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said in an email.


    "The Big Island is going to have a lot of vog today and maybe Maui," National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Foster said.


    Ash is a new hazard for Hawaii's Big Island, already grappling with volcanic gas and lava that has destroyed 37 homes and other structures and forced the evacuation of about 2,000 residents from communities in the southeast Puna district.


    Lava has burst from 21 giant ground cracks or fissures and torn through housing developments and farmland, threatening two highways that are exit routes for coastal areas.

    Several fissures shot lava into the air on Wednesday but one flow had not advanced any further toward coastal Highway 137, which remains around a mile (1.6 km) distant, County of Hawaii Civil Defense said in a statement.

    No serious injuries or deaths have been reported from the eruption.

    Kilauea Eruption Now Threatens Hawaii With Damaging Earthquakes, Acid Rain, 'Vog'

    The ongoing eruption of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano has opened up over twenty fissures in a residential neighborhood and resulting lava flows have destroyed dozens of homes and structures, but the threat to the Big Island extends beyond just the reach of emerging magma.

    On Wednesday, a magnitude 4.4 earthquake rattled the volcano's main caldera, damaging roads and buildings in Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park. Earlier, ash plumes led to an aviation red alert and raised the threat of acid rain and volcanic smog or "vog" from toxic sulfur dioxide gas that spews forth from the earth along with the lava.

    And the compounding threats from Kilauea show little sign of slowing down. The lava column in the volcano's main caldera has been dropping and the movement has been contributing to frequent earthquakes; cracks in nearby Highway 11 have also opened up.

    "As deflation continues, strong earthquakes in the area around Kilauea Volcano's summit are expected to continue and may become more frequent," reads a statement from the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory on Wednesday afternoon.
    As the floor of the caldera drops, the risk of explosive, steam-driven interactions with the water table increases. This could launch large chunks of rock within about a half mile of the volcano summit and perhaps send smaller rocks flying for miles.

    So far, though, the most dramatic activity from the summit has been a large plume of ash reaching up to two miles high that led authorities to increase the aviation alert to red.

    On the ground, the ash fall and volcanic smog issuing forth have led to warnings to take precautions against exposure to sulfur dioxide, which can cause respiratory problems and irritate eyes. The National Weather Service issued a statement Wednesday on the possibility of hazardous air quality.


    Meanwhile, lava is still a concern, too. Fountains of lava from re-animated fissures light up the evenings near the Leilani Estates subdivision in Puna while a flowing front of molten rock slowly continues to move downhill from fissure 17 toward the ocean along a path of steepest descent.
