Hawaii Now Faces "Laze" Dangers


Big Island residents have yet another danger to worry about. Laze is a mashup of "lava" and "haze." It's a nasty product formed when hot lava hits the ocean, sending hydrochloric acid and volcanic glass particles into the air. And now it's a real threat. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said lava crossed Highway 137 late Saturday night and entered the Pacific Ocean. Laze can cause lung, eye and skin irritation. And it has proven deadly in the past. the HVO said, "This hot, corrosive gas mixture caused two deaths immediately adjacent to the coastal entry point in 2000, when seawater washed across recent and active lava flows." https://ift.tt/2ITi1i1 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
