Residents with respiratory problems had already been warned to stay indoors in the area on Thursday following an early morning ash cloud eruption at the Halemaumau Crater.

The explosion did not pose an immediate threat to people in the vicinity, scientists said Thursday, but Mike Poland, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey who was based at Kilauea from 2005 to 2015, warned of more activity.

Poland said the explosion likely only lasted a few minutes and that ash accumulations were minimal, with likely trace amounts near the volcano and at the town, named Volcano.

Such an eruption could not only shroud large areas of the Big Island in volcanic ash and smog, but also other Hawaiian islands and potentially distant areas if the plume reaches up into the stratosphere and ash is carried by winds. The state of Hawaii continues to be open for business.

Historically, Kilauea's rumblings have not been as deadly as other volcanoes around the world, said Steve Malone, an emeritus research professor of volcanology at the University of Washington in Seattle. All these variables are hard to predict.so there might not even be a big one. Winds blowing a plume emanating from crater 30,000 feet in the air were mostly directing it away from people. One person was killed by falling debris from the massive eruption.

HVO's warning came after an explosive eruption at 4 a.m. that day.

The nightmare began on May 3, when the volcano first went off. Shield volcanoes like Kīlauea produce a runny, basaltic lava that does not tend to erupt as dramatically as steep stratovolcanos like Mount St. Helens. Hoyt explained the biggest concern though is the toxic sulfur dioxide that's seeping from the fissures caused by the volcano. He's making sure the hundreds of evacuees that are using the shelter have food and a place to sleep, as well as any comfort they need during the stressful time.

In addition to monitoring the volcano's current activity, researchers are scouring data from Kīlauea's extensive monitoring network - of tiltmeters, seismometers, and ground and aerial gas detectors - in search of any changes that preceded Thursday's event.
