Laze hazard warnings continue on the Big Island

More warnings of laze hazard from the Hawaii civil defense, as lava from Kilauea’s eruption continues to reshape a part of this Hawaii island.

Laze is formed when hot lava hits the ocean, sending hydrochloric acid and steam with fine glass particles into the air.

A 5.6 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday prompted officials to re-assure residents that there was no tsunami threat. So far since Kilauea’s big eruption a month ago, there have been almost 10,000 earthquakes on the Big Island.

“It’s like a flood, it’s just pouring out, covering everything in its path. It’s just incredible what it’s doing. It looks like there’s no stopping it,” said Talmadge Magno from Hawaii Civil Defense Agency.

The Filipino community reacts.
