The Eruption Continues


Halema'uma'u Crater April 8, 2008

The eruption of Halema'uma'u crater on Kilauea forced the evacuation of the surrounding settlements: Volcano House, the Kilauea Military camp and Volcano Charter School. Evacuation was recommended for the surrounding communities. Fortunately these towns are uphill from the crater and not in danger from lava flow. The greatest dangers are from sulfur dioxide and ash. Humans have long wondered what keeps Earth's core hot. The answer may lie in cosmology and a little Black Hole.

Yup, those in the near vicinity were on purple alert.

I have never seen the vog so thick in Hilo, just past Kurtistown was the worst apparently, but by the Volcano golf course it was clear apparently.

Then the rain came and washed it all out.
