Vog — volcanic smog — kills plants, casts a haze over Hawaii


news.yahoo.com

OCEAN VIEW, Hawaii - For eight years, Tony and Sam Bayaoa have grown thousands of bright red, yellow and pink protea flowers on their farm. Then in March, Kilauea volcano opened a new vent and began spewing double the usual amount of toxic gas.

Now about 70 percent of their crop is dried, brown and brittle.

"The first reaction was — did someone poison the plants?" said Tony Bayaoa, whose two-acre farm is 35 miles from the volcano. "I've lost my livelihood."

The VOG has been especially bad recently. In the last month, they evacuated the Volcano monument and "tried" to get people to evacuate from Ocean View. The increase in volcanic activity led to higher than usual releases of sulfur dioxide in the VOG, which is why their plants died.

The volcano belched and their plants died. VOG has been around forever on the Big Island, but it just recently had an excessive amount of sulfer dioxide. I don't think it is anything alarming at this point.
