Kilauea Update 1

This morning before sun up Kilauea burped again, sending out sprinklings of small lava rocks, but more interestingly to us, she started spewing out ash along with the other volcanic gases. SO2 is being emitted at the rate of up to 5000 tons per day (yes, you read it correctly). We're alright as long as we have trade winds (winds from the ENE), but if the wind shifts to Kona (westerly) winds, the plume will blow directly over our village, perhaps resulting in evacuations.
