Explosions in Kilauea's crater sparked an aviation red alert due to risks ash could blow into aircraft routes and damage jet engines.

Planes need to be wary of airborne ash which could impact engines and potentially cause engine failure, Accuweather said.

Smog from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano drifted north up the island chain on Wednesday and communities south of its summit were warned of up to a quarter-inch (0.6 cm) of ashfall as the almost two-week eruption showed no sign of easing.

A shift in winds was expected to bring ash and fog inland on Wednesday and make them more concentrated said another official with the USGS. "The plume, it's not near as ashy as it was yesterday, and it's rising more or less vertically over the summit region".

Local authorities have warned residents near the volcano to be prepared to be evacuated at short notice or directly without any previous warning.

The observatory warned the eruption could become more violent.

Images of burning roadsides and choking ash plumes have filled social media, with NASA also posting satellites pictures online of the volcano from high above. For those on the ground near active lava vents, similar health warnings were issued because of unsafe volcanic gases.

Scientists have said a phreatic eruption could send ash plumes as far as 12 miles into the air from the summit crater.

The Hawaii Fire Department reported risky air quality around fissures in the southeast section of Lanipuna Gardens and surrounding farm lots on Pohoiki Road.

Shocking images of lava spilling onto roads and 20 fissures expanding in the earth emerged as reports of toxic gas forced residents from their homes. Most fissures have opened up in this subdivision or the adjoining Leilani Estates.

In a separate note, the Hawaii Civil Defense agency dispelled rumors of a tsunami concern.

Lava from another fissure that opened over the weekend is making a path for the ocean, about 2 miles (3 kilometers) away.
