Ash cloud from Hawaii volcano sparks red alert for aviation

By Terray Sylvester

PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) - Explosions intensified on Hawaii's Kilauea volcano on Tuesday, spewing ash and triggering a red alert for aircraft for the first time since the latest eruption began 12 days ago.

Ash and volcanic smog, or vog, as it is called, rose to 12,000 feet (3,657 meters) above Kilauea's crater and floated southwest, showering cars on Highway 11 with gray dust and prompting an "unhealthy air" advisory in the community of Pahala, 18 miles (29 km) from the summit.

An aviation red alert means a volcanic eruption is under way that could spew ash along aircraft routes, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) says on its website.

Ash was also a new hazard for residents of Hawaii's Big Island, already grappling with volcanic gas and lava that has destroyed 37 homes and other structures and forced the evacuation of about 2,000 residents.

A shift in winds was expected to bring ash and vog inland on Wednesday and make them more concentrated, said John Bravender of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

"We're observing more or less continuous emission of ash now with intermittent, more energetic ash bursts or plumes," Steve Brantley, a deputy scientist in charge at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO), said on a conference call with reporters.

The observatory warned the eruption could become more violent.

"At any time, activity may become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent," the HVO said in a statement on the change in aviation alert level to red from orange.

Ash is not poisonous but irritates the nose, eyes and airways. It can make roads slippery and large emissions could cause the failure of electrical power lines, said USGS chemist David Damby.


The eruption has hit the island's tourism industry.

Big Island summer hotel bookings have dropped by almost half from last year, Rob Birch, executive director of the Island of Hawaii Visitor Bureau, told journalists on a conference call.

College exchange student Constantin Plinke, 24, was planning to go to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park before it was shut.

"We had a big list of things to do and maybe 80 percent of them were in the national park," he said, after stopping by the side of the road to watch ash plumes rising into the air. "It's sad."

The area taking the brunt of the eruption is about 25 miles (40 km) down Kilauea's eastern flank, near the village of Pahoa. Lava has burst from the ground to tear through housing developments and farmland, threatening one of the last exit routes from coastal areas, state Highway 132.

The latest fissure in the earth opened on Tuesday, spewing lava and toxic gases that pushed air quality into "condition red" around Lanipuna Gardens and nearby farms, causing "choking and inability to breathe," the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory and Hawaii County Civil Defense said.

Road crews put metal plates over steaming cracks on nearby Highway 130 and reopened it to give coastal residents an escape route should a lava flow reach the ocean and block another road, Highway 137, Civil Defense said.

No major injuries or deaths have been reported from the eruption.

A looming menace remains the possibility of an "explosive eruption" of Kilauea, an event last seen in 1924. Pent-up steam could drive a 20,000-foot (6,100-meter) ash plume out of the crater and scatter debris over 12 miles (19 km), the USGS said.

Meghan Markle's father will skip the royal wedding to have a heart operation here's what's going on

Meghan Markles father, Thomas Markle Sr., will not attend the royal wedding due to a heart procedure.

Meghan Markles father will not attend the royal wedding after all, because hes undergoing a heart procedure.

On Tuesday, Thomas Markle, 73, told TMZ hes having heart surgery at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday to repair his heart from a previous attack that did significant damage, adding, They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed.

Thomas broke the news only hours after telling TMZ, I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle. On Monday, he also told the website he was experiencing chest pains and had been popping Valium for the pain.

Over the past week, the health of Thomas and the status of his wedding RSVP has been confusing. After the Daily Mail revealed on Saturday that Meghans dad had staged paparazzi photos of him viewing images of Meghan and fiancé Prince Harry at an internet cafe (an event that reportedly made the queen very angry), Thomas revealed that he suffered a heart attack six days earlier and was skipping the nuptials to avoid causing his daughter further embarrassment.

On Tuesday, Meghans half sister, Samantha Markle, told the television show Good Morning Britain that her father was facing unbelievable stress from being thrust into the spotlight.

Heres a primer on Thomass health:

A heart attack can occur due to physiological and emotional factors.

According to the American Heart Association, heart attacks usually occur when the blood vessels that pump blood into the heart thicken from plaque that eventually ruptures, forming a clot. While a person of any age can experience a heart attack, theyre more common among older men: Most men who have a heart attack have their first one at age 65.

Stress, like what is affecting Thomas Markle, is also a factor. According to Steven Gundry, heart surgeon and cardiologist and author of The Plant Paradox, an intense emotional state can cause blood pressure to spike (which can harm the heart) or trigger unhealthy eating and drinking habits that can damage the heart or blood vessels.

Cholesterol as a heart attack trigger is debatable.

Gundry says 50 percent of people presenting with a heart attack or acute coronary syndrome (a pre-heart attack) have normal levels of cholesterol [a fatty substance the body requires to build cells]. Its a bit of a myth that too much cholesterol causes heart attacks.

Popping Valium wasnt helping Thomass health.

Valium, a drug in the benzodiazepine family, is typically used to treat seizures and anxiety and, according to Gundry, Thomas was likely masking his chest pain, not eradicating it. The rule of thumb is, if you feel chest pains, chew on an aspirin to thin the blood rapidly.

Calling Thomass procedure heart surgery may be a stretch.

According to TMZ, doctors will insert tubes called stents (Think of them as scaffolding, says Gundry) in Thomass body to reopen the blood vessels. The stents, which arent typically used during open-heart surgery, remain in the body to keep arteries from narrowing again.

Thomas can help prevent another heart attack.

Avoiding smoking, stress, and trans fats (those found in fried or processed food) and sticking to a regular exercise regime will help stave off future heart attacks.



Meghan Markle's Mom Doria Arrived in London and She's Carrying a Clue About the Wedding Gown!

The mother of the bride has landed!

After taking off from L.A. on Tuesday evening, Meghan Markles mother, Doria Ragland, landed in London on Wednesday, and spent the afternoon with her daughter and future son-in-law, Prince Harry, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Doria was picked up at the airport by Meghans new aide, Amy Pickerill, who is the assistant private secretary to Prince Harry, before they went to meet the couple.

    Its the event of the decade! Be sure to keep up with all of PEOPLEs royal wedding coverage and dont forget to check out everything you need to know about Meghan Markles perfect style.

And Meghans mom didnt come empty handed. Ragland, who will play a special role in her daughters big day, was spotted with a Burberry garment bag that could possibly contain her wedding day look. The British brand is also a new frontrunner in the list of possible designers of Meghans royal wedding dress.

If both Meghan and Doria, a yoga instructor and social worker, wear gowns from Burberry, it wouldnt be the first time the same fashion house designed multiple looks for a royal wedding. For Kate Middletons 2011 wedding, both she and her sister and maid of honor, Pippa Middleton, wore dresses from Alexander McQueen.


On Saturday, Meghans mother will accompany her daughter to St. Georges Chapel by car from Cliveden House Hotel, where they both will stay the night before the wedding.

Upon arrival, Meghan was supposed to be greeted by her father, who would then walk her down the aisle. With Thomas Markle no longer set to be in attendance on the big day, its quite possible that Doria would take his place to walk her daughter down the aisle.


Doria has already met Harry a few times and was with Meghan and Harry at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in Toronto in September.


    Dont miss out! Tune in to Meghan and Harry a Fairy-Tale Wedding on Saturday, May 19, starting at 6 a.m. ET/ 3 a.m. PT on PeopleTV now available on PeopleTV.com and on your favorite streaming device.

When the couple gave an interview after announcing their engagement in November, Harry called Meghans mother amazing. A source told PEOPLE that Harry even asked for Dorias permission before he popped the question to Meghan.

Meghan Markle Debuts a New Hairtstyle

Harper's Bazaar Jenna Rosenstein,Harper's Bazaar 1

From Harper's BAZAAR

Nobody knows how Meghan Markle will wear her hair for the Royal Wedding (we don't even know who her hairstylist will be). But if the style she wore today is any indication, we could be seeing a half-up hairstyle, just like her future sister-in-law Kate Middleton, with Markle's signature face-framing tendrils.

Markle and Prince Harry were spotted arriving in Windsor this morning ahead of Saturday's royal wedding-reportedly on their way to wedding rehearsals. They were spotted leaving Kensington Palace this morning along with Kate Middleton and Prince William.

Eagle-eyed Markle fans might even notice her hair looks freshly cut, which is not surprising given her weekend plans. The bottom-half of her hair appears to be more layered in recent appearances, and it might be a few inches shorter as well. Though it's hard to tell with half her hair pulled back, which is a style we've rarely seen her wear. See below how her hair looked at a few recent public appearances for comparison:

We love that Markle was spotted wearing lip gloss and a heavy contour on her cheeks as well. The future royal isn't afraid to play with makeup, and rumors are swirling that she plans to do her own makeup for the wedding (with the help of her two best friends).

Markle's signature hairstyle is a low, messy chignon with two face-framing tendrils. It's the style we think she's most likely to wear for the big day, though having her hair totally down is more modern option as well. We also don't know if Markle will choose to wear a tiara-royal heirloom, custom, or otherwise-for the wedding.

"I don't think she should wear a tiara," says British wedding planner, Bruce Russell. "I just don't think it's her. Yes, she's marrying Prince Harry, but Harry is different, and they are a very different type of royal couple. I think they're going to be very personal in what they do."

What experts can all agree on is that Markle is most likely to break tradition and go her own way. "There will definitely be something in her hair," says Russell, "But whether it's an heirloom, I'm not sure it should be. Wearing a tiara puts her in a box. And, everyone expects her to wear one. They'll follow tradition, but I think there will be quite a few surprises, and they will definitely put their own stamp on things."



Why did Meghan Markle's mother sit in the 2nd row during the royal wedding?

All eyes were on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19, but many also took notice of the brides mother, Doria Ragland, quietly supporting her daughter throughout her big day.

The whole world fell in love with Ragland as she shed many tears during the ceremony.

However, many also took notice of the fact that she was seated in the second row at St. Georges Chapel, and not the first.

According to royal expert Alastair Bruce, the seating plan was decide by Markle and Prince Harry.

Its very much a matter for the bride and groom, he told Town & Country.

The royal expert added that the couple had enlisted the help of the Lord Chamberlains office to help with the seating chart.

As for those on social media, some thought Ragland was placed in the second row so that she would be in view of the cameras.

Another Twitter user also noted that Queen Elizabeth II was also sitting in the second row, just on the other side of the chapel.

To be honest, its good she was in the second row, because otherwise viewers would not have seen the many touching moments of her welling up at the sight of her daughter marrying her prince.



Royal Wedding: Special relationship!

Doria was the only member of her side of the family to attend the wedding and she sat alone in choir stalls close to her daughter. During the service the yoga teacher and therapist often looked deep in thought. But she could also be seen to enjoy the passionate address by preacher the Most Rev Bishop Michael Curry. It had been anticipated that Doria might take on the role of accompanying her daughter down the aisle. However, she reportedly felt unable to act as a replacement for Meghans father. Meghan, whose parents divorced in 1987, has said of her mother:

We can just have so much fun together, and yet Ill still find so much solace in her support.

And at one stage Doria was overwhelmed by emotion as she appear to bite her lip and fight back the tears. She also joined the prince for the signing of the register.

It had been an eventful few days after the proud American mother flew in to London from Los Angeles for a series of getting-to-know-you meetings with the extended family, which included a teaparty hosted by Prince Charles.

She also visited the Queen and met Prince William, his wife Kate and two of their children. And judging by the friendly and happy exchanges yesterday, it seems that the preparations had cemented the bond for a special relationship between two transatlantic families. Doria travelled to the wedding with Meghan from Cliveden House in a vintage Rolls-Royce Phantom 4.

She looked glamorous in a pale pistachio Oscar de la Renta dress,
with a Stephen Jones hat, as the car passed through the grand setting of Windsor Great Park.



The big day is finally here! Tens of thousands gather around Windsor Castle for the royal wedding

When Markle walks down the aisle of St. Georges Chapel to meet her groom, it will be the start of a wedding unlike any the British royal family has seen before.

In a departure from tradition, Markle will walk much of the way up the aisle unchaperoned, followed by her 10 bridesmaids and page boys a move that is unprecedented for a royal bride in Britain and can be seen as a bold feminist statement.

Only when she reaches the 15th-century chapels Quire will she be accompanied for her final steps to the foot of the altar. After a week of tumult, it was revealed on the eve of the wedding that her husband-to-bes father, Prince Charles, would take on this role rather than her own father, Thomas Markle Sr., who has been ruled out by ill health.

The change came so late that the order of service had already been printed with Thomas Markles name. He, however, will be thousands of miles away in Mexico, reportedly recovering from a heart procedure.

Meghans mother, Doria Ragland, will be present and was seen with her daughter arriving at the hotel where she spent the last night before the wedding. Harry was at a separate hotel with his brother and best man, Prince William.

Big moments so far

    The 600 invited guests start to arriveahead of the noon (7 a.m. ET) ceremony, including Oprah Winfrey, Victoria and David Beckham, George and Amal Clooney, Idris Elba and singer James Blunt.
    Palace reveals that Meghans wedding ring has been made from Welsh gold and is a gift from the Queen, while Harrys is platinum.
    The Queen confers the title Duke of Sussex on Prince Harry, making Meghan the first-ever Duchess of Sussex on their marriage.
    A vintage Rolls Royce car arrives at the hotel where Markle is staying, ready to carry her to Windsor Castle.

Crowds were gathering in the streets of Windsor from early Saturday, hoping to catch a glimpse of the bride and groom as they process through the town in an open horse-drawn carriage following the ceremony. Other devoted royal fans have camped out for several days to get the best possible spot. Forecasters promise blue skies for the big day.

Many more people planned to rise early (or stay up all night) in the United States to watch as Harry, long a favorite with the British public for his irreverent good humor, ties the knot with his California-born bride.

Hours ahead of the ceremony, Kensington Palace announced that Queen Elizabeth II was giving her grandson, Harry, the titles of Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. This means that after their marriage, Meghan will be referred to as the Duchess of Sussex the first person to hold that title.

The first man to hold the title of Duke of Sussex was an anti-slavery campaigner and supporter of rights for Catholics and Jews.

The wedding represents a historic moment for the royal family, as it welcomes an outspoken biracial, American divorcée into its ranks.

In a reflection of its contemporary nature, the couple has chosen a modern set of wedding vows, with the text of the formal parts of the service taken from Common Worship, the Church of Englands standard liturgy, first published in 2000. It is thought to be the first time that this text has been used in a royal wedding.

This means there will be no promise by Markle to obey her husband. Rather, Meghan will pledge to love him, comfort him, honor and protect him. Harry has chosen to wear a wedding ring, unlike his brother.

But perhaps the most obvious break with tradition will be in the music for the ceremony, which will be watched by millions around the world. While the couple have chosen a selection of classical works as the 600 guests wait for the ceremony to start, The Kingdom Choir, a group of 20 gospel singers, will perform the Ben E. King classic Stand by me during the service.

The award-winning young cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason has been chosen to play during the signing of the register. The ceremony will end with the Etta James version of Amen/This Little Light of Mine, a gospel song that became synonymous with the US civil rights movement.

The dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David Conner, will conduct the service, while the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, the most senior cleric in the Church of England, will officiate.

But in a break with British royal custom and in a nod to the brides homeland Chicago-based bishop Michael Curry, the first African-American head of the Episcopal Church in the United States, will give the sermon.

The presence of Harrys late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, will also be felt at the ceremony. Guide me o thou great redeemer was sung at Dianas funeral, at her memorial service in 2007 and at Kate and Williams wedding in 2011.

Dianas sister, Lady Jane Fellowes, will give the reading words on the power of love from the Song of Solomon. Her brother, Earl Charles Spencer was among the guests seen arriving.

The Queen and Prince Philip will of course be present for the occasion, with the monarch the last to enter the chapel before the bride. It will be Prince Philips first public appearance since he had hip surgery last month.

Guests from Markles side include cast members from Suits the legal drama in which she made her name. Tennis star Serena Williams, a good friend of Markle, also confirmed she was attending via social media.

It appeared that TV legend and philanthropist Winfrey, sporting a large hat, would be sitting in the Quire with the family and other close friends, rather than in the main body of guests in the nave.

In an effort to be inclusive, the couple has invited 2,640 members of the public, including 1,200 ordinary people from communities around the United Kingdom, to watch from inside the castle grounds as the guests arrive.

Among them were Helen McKenzie and Louis Davidson, who were invited through their local community in Somerset. We got the invitation a while ago but had to keep it secret. It wasnt easy! Davidson told CNN as the pair headed into the castle.




Wedding dress


The world will get its first full glimpse of the wedding dress when Markle, 36, steps out of a car by the chapels West Steps. The designer has been kept a closely guarded secret, prompting months of speculation.

She will be accompanied in the first part of the wedding procession, through the nave, only by her six bridesmaids and four page boys, who include Harrys four-year-old nephew Prince George and three-year-old niece Prince Charlotte, as well as Markles godchildren, and the Dean of Windsor.

Prince Charles will join her when she reaches the Quire where the main royal guests are seated and will walk her down the Quire aisle to the foot of the altar.
There, she will be met by Harry. As a military veteran and Captain General of the Royal Marines, he is likely to wear ceremonial uniform, as did William on his wedding day.

After the hour-long ceremony, the newlyweds will emerge from the chapel by the West Door and make their way to the horse-drawn carriage which will carry them in procession through the streets of Windsor. There will be no shortage of military pageantry, with members of the Household Cavalry forming a staircase party and trumpeters playing as they make their exit.

Cheering crowds will greet the couple as they begin their first journey together as husband and wife, less than two years after they first met on a blind date in London.





Prince Charles, Harrys father, walked Markle down the aisle:

The whole world was delighted to see Prince Harry marry the girl of his dreams, Meghan Markle.

But what this couple would probably be delighted about is when the cameras stopped rolling and they could celebrate in privacy with their close family and friends.

At the reception, Prince Charles made a very heartfelt speech expressing how happy he was for the newlyweds at the lunchtime reception at Windsor Castle hosted by Queen Elizabeth II.

Charles gave a brilliant speech, a guest revealed to People. Harry was very emotional.

The guest said Charles mentioned his speech how proud he was of his youngest son and the man he had grown into.

He ended it calling him, My darling old Harry, Im so happy for you, which was very sweet, the guest added.

The heir to the throne also reportedly gushed about how happy for both Harry and Meghan he was and how pleased he was to be asked to walk his now daughter-in-law down the aisle.

Prince Harry also made an off-the-cuff speech which reportedly left guests wiping the tears away.

One guest even noted how some people were crying after Harry referred to Meghan as his wife for the very first time.

Were sure there wouldnt have been a dry eye in the house.



Sweet Gift Meghan Markle Gave Kate Middleton

Normally, the bride is the one receiving gifts on her wedding day, but Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, opted to give her new sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, a little something special to celebrate the occasion.

Meghan reportedly gave Kate the aptly named Kensington Bracelet by Zofia Day Co.
The yellow gold pieces were created especially for Meghan, who approved the design. But now, they are available for purchase on the Zofia Day website for $450.

Its an overwhelming honor to be part of history and for my pieces to be given as a keepsake for this momentous occasion, Lisette Polny, the founder of Zofia Day told People. The magazine reports that the bride also gave six of her best friends the bracelet.

In addition to the bracelets, Polny created bespoke necklaces for Meghan's good friend Benita Litt's daughters, who were bridesmaids in the ceremony.

I have always wanted to create a petite line, and my daughter loves to wear my designs, says Polny. So I decided to make Benitas girls some special pieces for their special day.

This isn't the only gift Meghan Markle gave to her friends on her wedding day. British milliner Stephen Jones also created hats for the bride's closest friends. "I am particularly delighted to have hatted [Meghans] mother, Doria Ragland in her mint beret and fashioned fantasies for her closest friends, highlighting their beauty and individuality," reads a statement from the designer.

Kensington Palace also confirmed the news with a statement-"Stephen Jones was also commissioned by Ms. Markle to create custom hats for several of her closest friends"-though they did not share which friends received the toppers.
