Aviation alert issued for erupting Hawaii volcano

A “red alert” has been issued for aircraft in the Pacific due to an ash plume from an erupting volcano in Hawaii.

Kilauea has been erupting for nearly two weeks on Big Island and now the volcano has created a plume of ash of up to 12,000 feet.

 

A red alert for aviation means a volcanic eruption could create an ash plume along aircraft routes.

 

Cruises to Big Island have already been disrupted by the eruption of the volcano, which has destroyed 37 homes and forced the evacuation of 2,000 residents from the area.

 

Both Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean skipped planned calls at the island’s cruise port on Hilo this week.
