The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that an explosive eruption at Kilauea's summit has occurred this morning and expects the resulting ash plume to cover the surrounding area.

At this time, while unconfirmed, there is speculation that this is a phreatic eruption, which is capable of sending ash plumes as far off as 12 miles from the summit.

Residents in the path of the ashfall were warned to shelter in place.
