大岛的火山还不停爆发中,我很早就定了下周飞honolulu的机票和住宿,这次去honolulu除了参加婚礼也顺便度个假,现在比较担心虽然大岛火山爆发,不知道烟雾什么的散发后会不会影响到honolulu的空气呢?
大家说有必要cancel这次的行程吗?

How is Honolulu affected by the volcano? Honolulu is approximately 116 miles away from Kilauea, so direct danger from the eruption is highly unlikely. So far flights between Honolulu and Big Island have been undisrupted, however any holidaymakers wishing to visit Big Island should be warned of road closures and evacuation areas. Some airlines are offering travellers the chance to change their flights free of charge for those booked to travel to Kilauea, with holidaymakers urged to contact their airline for more advice.
However one danger Honolulu may face could be volcanic smog - known as vog. Vog is made up of volcanic dust and gases from eruptions, with weather forecasters advising it may reach the smaller islands by tomorrow. Jon Jelsema, a National Weather Service forecaster, told the Honolulu Star Advertiser that tradewinds from the east-northeast could weaken and winds could shift to cause a vog plume to reach the smaller islands. “It’s not a slam dunk, but we can’t rule it out,” he said.
The International Volcanic Health Hazard Network warn that vog exposure can cause asthmatic symptoms for those with respiratory conditions, and breathing difficulties for those without respiratory conditions, depending on the levels of Sulfur Dioxide within the cloud. Sulfur Dioxide can also cause eye, nose and throat irritation as well as headaches. However the Environmental Protection Agency's air quality website currently displays a good level of air quality in Honolulu.
