Flights at-risk as Hawaii volcano erupts

Wednesday, 29 Nov, 2022 0

Travelers are being advised of possible disruption as a Hawaii volcano erupts.

The world’s largest active volcano Mauna Loa, has begun erupting for the first time in nearly 40 years.

Columns of ash are emitting but there is no damage to nearby towns.

The U.S. Geological Survey warns the Hawaii volcano can ‘change rapidly’ and residents should prepare to evacuate at short notice.

Fountains of lava have reached about 200 feet, it said Monday.

“The early stages of a rift zone eruption can be very dynamic, and the location of lava flows can change rapidly,” the Geological Survey said.

Southwest Airlines issued a travel advisory.

‘Current Mauna Loa volcanic activity may cause disruptions’ with possible flight delays and cancellations.

It waived change fees for customers through Tuesday.

Southwest flies to five Hawaii airports.

It comes as nearby Kilauea continues erupting.
