What Is Kilauea Eruption's Impact On The Environment?

Residents of Hawaii continue to feel the effects of Kilauea volcano, its lava still moving quickly on the big island.

And now, health officials on Guam — 4,000 miles away — are warning residents about volcanic haze as a result of the eruption.

Ben Edwards, a professor of Earth Sciences at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania, joined The Show to talk about some of the environmental risks of this eruption.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
