Review: 'Jurassic World 2' leans on nostalgia, contrivances

  Review: 'Jurassic World 2' leans on nostalgia, contrivances Here's the good news: "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom " is more fun than "Jurassic World." It's not exactly a high bar, but still a welcome surprise. In the hands of a new director, J.A. Bayona, with Chris Pratt's high-wattage charisma on full blast and a fair amount of self-aware humour intact, there are certainly worse ways to spend a couple hours in the air-conditioned multiplex this summer. Mind you, this movie is pretty ridiculous and the script (from Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly) is not very clever — I found myself rolling my eyes almost as frequently as I found myself smiling with genuine delight.

HAWAII is in the grips of a massive volcanic explosion after earthquakes triggered the catastrophic eruption of Mount Kilauea . With thousands forced from their homes and 12 fissures active, will the volcano erupt again today?

Kilauea volcano erupts, Hawaii hands out 18,000 ash masks. "At any time, activity may again become more explosive , increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent," the USGS said.

The Kilauea volcano on Hawaii is still sending lava flowing via channels that look like rivers on the island. The Hawaii Civil Defense Agency said there was a “large channelized flow” coming from the highly active Fissure 8 and making its way to Kapoho Bay, where the lava was entering the water.

Wednesday, in the early morning hours, there was a small explosion at the summit of the volcano. The explosion was expected to cause some ashfall downwind.

A live stream of the volcano, provided by the United States Geological Survey, was available on YouTube. The stream shows the summit of the volcano taken from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory’s observation tower. At night, there are no lights on the summit, so there isn’t much to see until dawn.

Tuesday’s Civil Defense message said that the health risks from the eruptions, as well as from the ocean entry of the lava, were still high. The Department of Health recommended that those in the area, specifically those with breathing problems, limit their time outside where they would be exposed to the emissions.

The sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano can mix with the oxygen, water vapor and other gases in the atmosphere to cause a haze called “vog.” That vog is a health risk for those in the area and can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, nose and throat.

Hawaii volcano EXPLODES AGAIN as Big Island issued EARTHQUAKE WARNING. THE HAWAII volcano has erupted once again , sending a plume of smoke, ash and debris high into the air above Big Island’ s Kilauea mountain.

Hawaii ' s Kilauea volcano erupted more than a month ago and liquid rock has been spewing from it and its fissures ever since. Lava flows have destroyed an

Another term specific to volcanic eruptions is laze, the by-product of the lava reaching and reacting with the cool water of the ocean. A large laze plume formed where the lava is continuously entering the ocean at Kapoho, and that plume can change direction easily with the wind at any moment.

The lava haze is a mix of hydrochloric acid and steam, along with tiny particles of volcanic glass that are all produced when the flowing lava reaches the ocean. The laze can damage lung tissue and can also irritate the skin and eyes like vog can. Additionally, the area where the lava enters the ocean is hazardous because the reaction between the two can cause small explosions of debris.

On Tuesday, fountains of lava from Fissure 8 were reaching heights of 130 to 140 feet in the air, according to the USGS. That was also causing Pele’s hair (a type of volcanic glass) and other volcanic glass byproducts to fall downwind from the eruption and into the residential area of Leilani Estates.

Other fissures, 16 and 18, were erupting small amounts of lava over the past several days but that activity has stopped, the USGS said. There is no way to predict how long the current volcanic activity from Kilauea will last, a USGS spokesperson told Newsweek.
