    Great pics thanks, very interesting to read of your first-hand experiences of being close to an active volcano.

    Few times per year I tune in to the media. Its gotten even shriller lately. Eyeball- and klickbaiting. Very disturbing.



    Alarmist, inaccurate, fearmongering:

    What they call the mainhighway is actually the evac dirtroad. 4 miles of it are paved.
    Nobody will get trapped. Its mostly evacuated by now. Fissure 20 and 22 will cut the road.
    Nobody stocks respirators. Amazon does. 3 days and they are here. No shortage.

    Barios was taking a risk filming the fissures. So what. Great pics.

    "boulders the size of a cow" No not really. The fissures are small. Football size at most, most are pebble sized.

    Ash cloud? What ash? Travelling tens of miles? Trades are blowing. Misleading and inaccurate.

    The lava will tunnel its way into the ocean and create new land. Kilauea is the pressure relieve valve for the lower magmachamber above the hotspot and thus reaching across the island. This puts pressure on Mauna Kea and there is a bulge developing there.


    More worrysome is the magma rise from 700 to 200m, during the last 5 months,below surface on the Saddle aera. Depending on where the rupture will take place, it could send lava either towards Hilo or Kona, or both.

    USGS cam this morning. Its about as big as it gets with Kilauea. Airquality was a bit down since it happened during a windstill moment. No ash. No worries.

    Looks amazing but its mostly dusty air. The crater is recessed into a valley. The golf course is 1000f above the craters lava level and 3 miles windward. With the ongoing tradewinds, the dust is blown into the ocean. The 3-4r scale tremors are normal, they increased in frequency by 50%. That has happened before.
    The hotspot is feeding the upper lava pool which is 70% located underneath Kaa'u desert at 300m and has affected Mauna Kea. Not something you hear about in the sensationist news. If the underground feed fissures widen north east wards - we will have a problem. I never liked that golfcourse. Quakes throw off your scores

    Looks photoshopped! lol

    I also like the Brooklands screen on your car. I had a sigle seater glass for a while on mine.

    Phone pic and it was a big plume. The lava here is very thin. Nothing like Pinatubo, Mt. St. Helens.

    How the f*** can you all remain so calm ???

    To those of us who live on solid ground, this would be terrifying.

    Aloha Paul,

    Its Hurricane season, volcano, lava, quakes, tsunami could strike anytime and if you try to save yourself and jump in the water you step on a giant stingray before you get chewed by a Tigershark.

    Most of us dont watch TV and are just not influenced by their relentless fearmongering. It just does not match with island life at all and Kilauea is only the prequel to the big event.
