That whole corner of the big island should be off limit to permanent construction, because what is happening now was bound to happen. This is not the first time that volcano has run over houses.

Doesn't surprise me in the least. There was a time it would have. But ever since I moved into an area that is, or was, mostly lakes and swampland, and watched the state, county and municipalities allow building in places that flood regularly, what government allows surprises me no longer.

Learning that was why, when I bought our home, I didn't rely on anybody else, but did my own research. We're surrounded, literally, by flood-prone properties. But we're on a ridge. Those other properties are where the water from the ridge we're on goes.

For many years they have been reports that Hawaii would go kaboom but till date it’s still standing, beautiful and safe...people who like there should be rather for a SHTF scenario though.

Yeah, something close to that, guess what we'll all move (1 million +) to Texas, because the cost of living here is too damn high and gun laws suck. What city Houston or Dallas is the question? Cowboys?

People live in flood zones, tornado zones and volcano zones, and even after catastrophe hits time and time again, they still move back and re-settle...go figure.

Yeah, then it'll tip over, and everyone will drown. So, folks really need to take each a chill pill. Smile


I'm concerned the island will split in half along the fault line and sink.

Please! Please! If you do that, leave all the Liberals/Progressives back there! (Hawaii is considered even more Blue than California.)

I don't think I heard it will blow up the way that Wyoming might or even the way Mount St. Helens did, but the volcano might erupt and rain down some lava bombs and ash.

That would be exciting but not devastating for the whole island.

But who knows. This is above all of our pay grade.

Darned right, the island could capsize.


I've stopped counting.

I heard a geologist say This was a bunch of bunk pushed by Nat Geo types for ratings. There will be an eruption there, but the threat of it being a massive cataclysmic type event is almost nil.

Geology is completely different in Hawaii.

Interesting animated image of what is occurring at the caldera in Volcano National Park:


Even though I've been there I was having trouble understanding where the fissures were and why it seemed like the media was talking about multiple locations. This map gets updated daily and helped:

It doesn't seem to be showing any signs of slowing down.
