    Dozens of quakes rattle Hawaii volcano, eruption possible

    I have been watching this one. They just had another


    HONOLULU — Dozens of earthquakes were rattling Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano on Wednesday as underground magma moved into a new area east of the Puu Oo vent. Officials with the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the increased activity is associated with the collapse of the crater floor at Puu Oo, which is an open vent below Kilauea's summit crater and lava lake.
    There were about 50 small quakes detected in the area on Wednesday morning alone.

    Volcano eruptions are so cool, to watch, I mean, but then, I'm weird in that way, I love disaster movies, especially seeing whole cities demolished, I find it fascinating, maybe it's the sheer force and strength of mother nature, I don't know, but whenever there's a disaster movies on, I'll watch it.

    I'm talking movies, now, I wouldn't feel the same seeing it actually happen....for real.

    Two of my favorite guys are Jeff Piotrowski and Reed Timmer. These chase tornadoes and are there when Hurricanes hit. I like watching them but I wouldn't want to be there. Especially when Jeff and Reed was in TX during Hurricane Harvey. His live feed was crazy wondering if he would make it out alive. They have some great feeds on youtube.

    The people who chase storms have got to be crazy or fearless....or both!

    It's clearly because of climate change.

    People over there are getting nervous. Earthquakes don't seem to be letting up, a 3.1 just hit. They are thinking about the time back in 1955 when the same thing happened.

    One resident on the southern part of Hawaii’s Big Island says lava fountains were shooting 150 feet (45 meters) in the air through a crack at Kilauea volcano.

    One Hawaii resident described a line of lava snaking through forest land as a “curtain of fire.”

    Osuna says it wasn’t just a visual experience. He tells Honolulu television station KOHN that the sound was overwhelming. The only thing comparable is if someone “put a bunch of rocks into a dryer’ and turned it on high. He also says he could smell the sulfur, along with the burning trees and other vegetation

    Thar she blows...

    USGS says Hawaii volcano could shoot boulders and rocks
    Fri, May 11, 2018 - Geologists on Wednesday warned that Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano could erupt explosively and send boulders, rocks and ash into the air around its summit in the coming weeks.
    The risk will rise as lava drains from the summit crater down the flank of the volcano, and explosions could occur if the lava drops below the groundwater level, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said. There is also potential for ash, steam and sulfur dioxide emissions. Kilauea is one of the world’s most active volcanoes.

    It has destroyed 36 structures since it began releasing lava from fissures that opened in a Big Island neighborhood about 40km east of the summit crater. There are now 15 of the vents spread through Leilani Estates and neighboring Lanipuna Gardens. In the weeks ahead, the volcano could eject blocks up to 1.8m in diameter a little less than 1.6km away, the USGS said, adding that it might also send pebbles shooting into the air several kilometers away. The receding lava lake resembles conditions seen before a major summit eruption in 1924, USGS Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory scientist-in-charge Tina Neal said.

    That explosion killed one person and sent rocks, ash and dust into the air for 17 days. No one lives in the immediate area of the summit crater. However, people have continued to visit Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, which includes the crater and surrounding region. The park would be evacuated before conditions develop for an explosive eruption at the summit, spokeswoman Jessica Ferracane said.

    Separately, Hawaii Governor David Ige said a geothermal energy plant near the lava outbreak was accelerating its removal of stored flammable gas. Puna Geothermal Venture has about 189,270 liters of pentane on site, but he expected it would all be removed by the end of yesterday. It would be “very, very hazardous” if a volcanic vent were to open under the facility where the fuel is stored, Ige said. The plant, which is owned by Ormat Technologies of Reno, Nevada, is across the highway from where lava has been erupting. Authorities had ordered nearly 2,000 residents to leave the neighborhoods in and around the vents in the mostly rural district of Puna.

    And so because the natural also describes the spiritual, the lake dried up and became no more as hell widened itself as the Earth creaks the mirrors of what has been done to the Earth Kingdom God made,

    Genesis chapter one, the breath of life was breathed into man and made him a living soul that will live forever somewhere, and it is either heaven or hell, the possibility of purgatory if they have any friends,

    'Just one drop of H20 Iesus would make all the difference and if you happen to see my brothers would you advise them to never come to this place of torment for your wrath is what became those signs.'
