    Another Voggy Day In Paradise

    Kīlauea is an active volcano in the Hawaiian Islands, one of five shield volcanoes that together form the Island of Hawaii. In Hawaiian, the word kīlauea means "spewing" or "much spreading", in reference to the mountain's frequent outpouring of lava. Issuing lava continuously since January 1983, Kīlauea is currently the most active volcano on the planet, an invaluable resource for volcanologists, and also the planet's most visited active volcano. Kīlauea is the most recent of a series of volcanoes that have created the Hawaiian Archipelago, as the Pacific Plate has moved and is moving over the Hawaii hotspot (see Lō'ihi Seamount). The plate under Kilauea, crosses over a hotspot of land which causes them to crash together and therefore errupt.

    Every now and then, volcanic ash ends in the air and can often cover the entire island chain with "vog" which has a look and feel of smog and sometimes fog. It can be a health risk if the the vog is thick. The following FM aircheck has a health warning issued on the airwaves of Maui which is the closest island to the volcanic activity of the "big island" of Hawaii. The warning could be familiar to those who live in cities that issue smog alerts.
