I've been visiting Texas news websites for the latest Hawaii ashfall advisories.
Mainland news outlets have been doing a fantastic job at releasing news about Hawaii's ashfall advisories, because they care about their citizens who could potentially be traveling to the affected locations. Here's a look at what they've been posting:
Don't see this every day - National Weather Service has issued an Ashfall Advisory for parts of the Big Island of Hawaii because of this morning's #Kilauea eruption. The ash cloud reached a height of 30,000' after the explosive eruption! pic.twitter.com/k4HMXmLINo— Josh Johnson (@JoshWeather) May 17, 2018
Ashfall Advisory is in effect until 12 PM HST. Explosive eruption at summit of Kilauea volcano. The good news is the wind direction is taking ash away from other islands. @WEARAllenStrum @AshleyRuizWx @WEARKDaniel pic.twitter.com/iP6FQSXNnJ— Kaitlin Wright (@wxkaitlin) May 17, 2018
Ashfall advisory from the @NWSHonolulu on the Big Island around the volcano. Wind from the east/northeast today, carries ash over the waters off the SW coast. #WBZ #Kilauea #volcano pic.twitter.com/BTTpUw5OVt— Pamela Gardner (@PamelaWBZ4) May 17, 2018
The #Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii has undergone an explosive eruption according to the USGS. The National Weather Service has issued an Ashfall Advisory for up to a quarter inch of ash accumulation. #volcano #hawaii #hiwx #KilaueaErupts #hivolcano pic.twitter.com/MAThpZQPa3— Zach Covey (@ZachWPDE) May 17, 2018
As a comparison, Hawaii's news outlets have been releasing lazy text-based advisories with no map of the affected locations...
