"With stratovolcanoes, when that lava reaches the surface, you get a very sudden expansion of that gas, and this generates a much more violent explosion", Malone said.

"We had prepared for the event", he said.

Halemaumau is the crater within Kilauea's summit caldera. "Fortunately no (volcanic) vents opened up today, but this event is far from over".

Kilauea's latest eruption "is an exciting event but its coming at a cost", Poland says, noting that dozens of homes have been destroyed and tourism is suffering.

"Ash fall was pretty localised to volcano village area and volcano national park".

Warnings that Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could shoot boulders and ash out of its summit crater are prompting people to rethink their plans to visit the Big Island. "Those lava flow fields halfway down the rift zone are what these new eruptions could become if they continue for months or longer", said Erik Klemetti, a volcanologist at Denison University. He said he didn't hear anything and has yet to spot ash. "I had let my dogs out, and I immediately went out to let them back in".

Communities a mile or two away may be showered by pea-size fragments or dusted with nontoxic ash, they said. Michael O'Meally, 23, who lives in Aiea and works in sales in Waikiki, said a friend who works at a Ko Olina resort told him she has fielded several calls from concerned guests. "I mean, I expected there would at least be one of the bigger earthquakes just before, or a boom or something". "It could be mistaken for a rain cloud...but it's getting more puffy, bulbous, whatever at the bottom", she said. No further evacuations are necessary at this point, Magno said.

The county of Hawaii has issued a Civil Defense alert update for the explosion, detailing new policies for those who are in Halemaumau and nearby areas.

The National Weather Service reports at 4 a.m. the radar estimates the height of the plume was around 30,000 feet.

USGS geologists and staff were evacuated from the Kilauea summit shortly before the blast and a webcam showed a grey plume of ash and chunks of magma known as pyroclasts that showered the volcano's slopes. The agency advises people in the path of the ash plume to shelter in place. Hawai'i County Civil Defense ask for your help and understanding.

Original: 5:17 a.m.

Kilauea is one of the world's most active volcanoes, erupting nearly continuously since 1983.

Ash accumulation less than one-quarter of an inch is possible over the advisory area.
