Lava from the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii has reached the Pacific Ocean. According to Hawaii County Civil Defense, Lava near the Leilani Estates subdivision on Hawaii's Big Island reached the ocean over the weekend. In addition to that, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory is reporting that sulfur dioxide emissions have greatly increased. As the Lava hits the ocean, nearby residents have been warned of ocean plumes and a laze hazard, which is formed when Lava meets the ocean and sends hydrochloric acid and steam into the air. It can cause lung damage as well as eye and skin irritation and can change direction with the wind at any time.
