      Explosive eruptions are very rare at classic shield volcanoes like Kilauea. It's generalized that shield volcanoes are effusive, not explosive.
  • Sulfur dioxide emissions at the volcano's summit have increased to a rate that is likely to be hazardous for areas downwind of Halema`uma`u crater

      Check out: http://volcano.wr.usgs.gov/kilaueastatus.php for April 2. Also describes a small ash cloud produced by Kilauea. Another rare shield volcano event.

    New activity at Kilauea doesn't match the "classic" shield volcano descriptions. Good chance to show that while humans try to categorize natural events as well as they can It doesn't always happen that way.
