Occasional small bursts of volcanic ash continue from Halemaumau
Crater. Low level winds will tend to push any ash clouds toward
the southwest. Ash fallout will likely be mainly over the Kau
district and Highway 11 southwest of the town of Volcano.

Hawaii Volcano Observatory reports that larger explosions are
possible at any time with little warning. If this occurs, an
Ashfall Advisory or Warning would likely be necessary.

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