The National Weather Service announced this on their website:

The web camera at Kilauea Volcano Summit at showed a burst in volcanic ash emissions from Halemaumau Crater (19.4N 155.3W) beginning around 7 am HST this morning. Northeast winds will carry ash downstream across the Big Island Kau District affecting the Punaluu, Wood Valley, Naalehu communities this morning and into early afternoon. Avoid excessive exposure to ash which is an eye and respiratory irritant. Those with respiratory sensitivities should take extra precaution to minimize exposure.
