Hawaii volcano emissions prompt federal disaster declaration
from Hawaii News Now
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has declared Hawaii County a natural disaster area. The designation means farmers there can apply for low interest loans from the federal government. It is estimated that 2,000 to 2,500 metric tons of sulfur dioxide billows from Kilauea's Halemaumau Crater on any given day. The fog leaves leafy greens less than leafy. Flowers are not as colorful or healthy as they should be.
