This morning, local time, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory announced that the color code would stay red for the time being. The warnings range from green — which means a volcano isn’t erupting — to red, which means that it is erupting or could be soon. “We’re just saying, ‘Here is the threat.’”No one at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory was available to speak on the phone before this article published. But Wallace, who works with the Alaska Volcano Observatory, says that all of the volcano observatories around the country are chipping in. “We’re using webcam information to estimate heights of ash clouds, we have instruments detecting the concentrations of ash,” Wallace says.
