... Light ashfall likely to continue from Kilauea Volcano...

Web cams, observers and radar data indicate that occasional small
bursts of volcanic ash continue to emanate from Halemaumau
crater. Low level trade winds will push ash toward the southwest,
and ash fallout will likely occur over the Kau district and
Highway 11 southwest of the town of Volcano, including the
communities of Pahala, Wood Valley and Naalehu.

In addition, trace amounts of ash deposited over the last few
days are likely being picked up by locally gusty strong trade
winds, contributing to dusty conditions.

Avoid excessive exposure to ash which is an eye and respiratory
irritant. Those with respiratory sensitivities should take extra
precaution to minimize exposure.

interagency vog information dashboard at https://vog.Ivhhn.Org.
