I Ducirte Has the Lead in El Salvador By Robbie Dingeman and Rod Thompson Star-Bulletin Writers HILO Mauna Loa kept up a curtain of fire today as it put on a volcanic show that ended nearly nine years of slumber. The eruption of lava from a vent on the northeast slope of Mauna Loa remained "steady" at midmorning, the Hawaii County Civil Defense announced today.

The vent was centered at the 9.000-foot elevation of Mauna Loa and fountains in the curtain rose to about 50 feet, according to the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Output of lava was estimated at 500.000 cubic meters per hour, down from the one million cubic meters per hour estimated earlier, the observatory said. A flow from the vent to the southeast had slowed and turned slightly away from Kulani Correctional Facility, Civil Defense said, prompting officials to change the warning to an alert.

Civil Defense said. Because the speed of the flow varied greatly, there was no way to estimate how soon it might reach that road. Civil Defense said. At 8 a.m.. the flow also was reported to be about a quarter mile from a power line which serves the Kulani.

The power line was manually switched off last night, and power rerouted to Volcano and Kau by other transmission lines, according to a spokesman for Hawaii Electric Light Co. At daybreak, the observatory reported a red glow in the sky from the area of the vent as well as strong harmonic tremors. The site of the vent was about a mile SPECTACULAR SCENE A curtain of fire shoots from Mauna Loa's northeast rift zone yesterday as the volcano came to life after nine years.
