Breaking News

Authorities in Hawaii announced on Monday that Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano, has begun erupting for the first time since 1984, sending volcanic ash and debris raining down in the nearby area.

An eruption began in the summit caldera of Mauna Loa, known as Moku’weoweo, at roughly 11:30 p.m. HST, according to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. For the time being, the eruption is contained at the peak and poses no danger.

“The Observatory has increased the Volcano Alert Level from “advisory” to “warning,” with aviation alert upgraded to “red.” Some ash and volcanic glass fibers may become airborne and blow downwind,” the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (EMA) reported.
