VOLCANO, Hawaii - Elevated sulfur dioxide levels from Kilauea volcano and a change in wind direction Tuesday forced 2,000 people to leave Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island.

The rising levels of gas could be an indicator of a coming large "Belch" by Kilauea, a massive lava burst. Almost Forty years ago it produced bursts almost 2000 feet high.

Hopefully everyone is evacuated safely and the situation is brought under control.
