According to officials in Hawaii, toxic gas emanating from ash produced by recently erupted volcanoes has added to the dangers facing residents, whose escape routes are already threatened with closure because of lava flows. Dangerous levels of sulfur dioxide, gas and other emissions have prompted Hawaiian health officials to urge residents to stay indoors or leave the eastern end of Hawaii’s Big Island, which has been ravaged by volcanic activity for nearly two weeks. There have been no major injuries or death reported from the eruptions, but they have destroyed dozens of homes and other structures thus far.
