Hawaii Island Volcano - Updated May 25, 2018
In a statement Monday, Hawaii Governor David Ige reported, "Travel is safe to the Hawaiian Islands." He noted, "The experts are telling us there is no danger from the eruptions to anyone outside the areas that have been evacuated."
The latest updates from the Hawaii Tourism Authority confirm
None of the Hawaiian Islands are affected by the Kilauea volcano activity, except a remote area on the Island of Hawaii's east side and the Kilauea Summit. View a map of the affected area. All flights into Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole (KOA) and Hilo International Airport (ITO) are operating normally. All accommodations, activities, and attractions on the island are also operating normally, with the exception of those in the area affected by the lava activity. Air quality on the Island of Hawaii remains largely unchanged with this situation. Air quality is being closely studied and is of most concern in the immediate area inside where the volcanic activity is taking place.
As a precaution, most of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is currently closed until further notice.
