Residents of a Puna subdivision are under mandatory evacuation orders as lava emerges in their midst. After several days of indications of a major change in the ongoing eruption of Kilauea, predictions of an outbreak in the east rift zone have been realized.

Residents and social media posts shows video spewing through cracks in the earth.

Resident Ikaika Marzo said he could see "fountains" of lava in the community.

Of all the places I might choose to live, atop a volcano is not one of them.

There are volcanoes and there are volcanoes. Hawaiian eruptions tend to be rather calm. The lava calmly flows into your home, giving you time to leave.

The Puna area is a known high risk area on the slopes of Kilauea. Land is pretty cheap there.

It was releasing RED steam and smoke today. Why red?

Steam is white. Smoke, depends on what's burning.

Lava glows bright red, illuminating both steam and smoke.

I live on the busy isle (Oahu). Quite safe, except for the traffic.

Same reason land is cheap in flood zones, tornado alley, etc. But people are stubborn, especially if family roots run deep in the area. Hopefully, some minor possessions are all that succumb to the lava and the people and any culturally significant items heed the warnings and get out.

There are frequent property auctions by the county brought about by failure to pay property taxes after your acre was turned into a (bumpy) parking lot.

(Bumpy) parking lots are real cheap.

Lot of Illumination. Very beautiful. See the 30 second mark.

It looks brown, actually. I don't think that image is from the current outbreak. Seems too high on the mountain.

You know lots about the volcanos there Phage, probably because you live somewhere around there. What is important to some people to know is not important to others. I like knowing a little about stuff like that but I probably would never desire to know as much as people who live next to them need to know.

Scientists say the actual color is more pinkish than red. That video/analysis is of the current eruption.

What scientist?

As I said, that is from the Puu Oo vent, that's about 14 miles from the outbreak in the subdivision.
The coloration is from ash, not smoke or steam.

Atop? No.

Beside.

BEST PLACE EVER.

Never underestimate the power of a GREAT volcano in your backyard.



This was in mine - for too short a time but long enough I'll never forget how much I love her.

Peace and prayers for all in Hawaii.

I hear a group of liberals are planning a march on the volcano. They are trying to shame the volcano into lowering its carbon footprint

Kilauea has been erupting pretty much continuously for about 30 years. When the wind gets a southerly turn the smoke gets pushed my way. It's called vog (volcanic smog). It's bad.

I've been after the EPA about it but so far, nada. But it's the sulfur, not carbon, that's the problem.

I wonder how many cow farts that equates to per hour? I believe that volcanoes can actually change the climate and in fact have in the past. I don’t think there is a damn thing we can do about it either except raise taxes.

Explosive volcanic eruptions throw sulfates high into the atmosphere. This causes reduced radiative forcing. It's a cooling effect. Last time it happened enough to matter was the Pinatubo eruption in 1991. It cooled things down a little bit, for a year or so. Made for some really nice sunsets too.

Hawaiian volcanoes don't do that. So, let's hope for a lot of explosive eruptions?

Usually happens after Chipotle in my experience.
