Trade winds clear volcanic haze

May 18, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The return of trade winds has begun clearing volcanic smog from Oahu and Hawaii's other smaller islands.

The National Weather Service expects Honolulu to be clear of the smog, called vog, today. Increased sulfur dioxide emissions from the Big Island's Kilauea Volcano and a lack of trade winds have been blamed for the haze.
