The explosion(s) at Halema`uma`u (no okina on da keyboard) were most likely due to rock falls resulting from the quake.
It did also produce a small local tsunami, recorded at Hilo.

That would explain the water flowing out of Waikea harbor, then. As I said, someone showed me a video of the ocean being pulled out from Hilo, even though the tsunami sirens were not going off at the time.

And yes, evidently the 6.9 quake was the cause of the crater explosion, though the dozens if not hundreds of significant quakes in the past days have no doubt contributed. Seriously, the number of 3+ quakes shown, just for TODAY, is absolutely absurd: earthquake.usgs.gov...

A lot of magma movement.
If this continues Leilani Estates will turn into a splatter cone.

I’m perplexed as to why a subdivision was built there?
I live near volcanoes also, but at a safe distance.

Hopefully all are evacuating.
Hawaii is a beautiful place.

Phage, did you feel the 6.9 quake today? It was said to have been felt in Oahu.

I can hear (in my mind), the words of my grandfather who lived in Kona for 40 years; "Anyone who builds on the east rift is an idiot." He was a friend of famed geologist Thomas Jaggar.

I didn't feel the quake but the blinds of the high rise office building in which I work started swaying a bit.

Do you happen to know the pressure of magma at that depth. I imagine it must be immense. For it to go from the main cone to an area of fissures seems disturbing as that area would have less mass above the magma and more likely to "burst"?

Cheaper, more affordable land. No recent history of eruptions in the subdivision. Plenty of reasons why people would choose to live there.

Honestly, no one seemed to have predicted that Leilani would crack open and spew lava.

Edit: though, as Phage stated above, it was always a risky endeavor to build along the East Rift.

Yet they have a sense of humour.


And for whoever ask about owning property in Hawaii. Don't quote me.. but I think unless you are a true native you can't actually own it. More of a lease agreement. My sister has a coffee farm in Kona, the property was bought and paid for... but there is a clause.

Perhaps Phage can explain.

I think weight would be a better term than pressure.

Magma gets pumped toward the summit of Kilauea where it collects. Apparently what has happened is that something caused the magma start moving from the summit down a new channel the east rift zone. Think of it as a stream cutting a new bed. But underground. And with magma, not water.

There is no clause. Fee simple is fee simple. You own the land, but a bank probably owns the mortgage.

Hmm, then it's settled then.

Oh my.

I don't imagine you'll mind, but you are definitely the "answer any random question about Hawaii" guy.

Is it true that you are required to grow pineapples in your yard when you buy land in Hawaii?

How many lu'aus do you attend in a normal week?

How do you guys get anything done while wearing leis all the time?

Better have your bug out bag packed cousin, they say the lava could hit Oahu by next week.

Understandable.

I hear more people would have evacuated from Puna, but it's coconut harvest season, and you know how crazy that gets.

Off sub and I am at fault. 🙄

No but I've stolen pineapples from the Dole pineapple fields near Lahaina while trying to figure out why the Maui police issued a stolen car alert on the radio. Where and how far did they go?

And looky here..

Assuming you watched the video, and are familiar with Keaukaha and Kealoha Beach Park (4 Mile), have you ever seen the water pull back that far so quickly?

The island he is talking about is dry in low tide, covered in high tide. It goes from underwater to exposed in a matter of a minute or so. I've never seen that happen myself, having spent a good deal of time there.

In your experience, is this a common occurrence?

Edit: Perhaps not current, but it was recorded earlier today.

Ignorant and drunk...

Phage, did you feel the first one? And how about the second one??

And please tell people about the riff type of fissure because mountains (and volcano cones) confuses people.

Thanks because you rule!!
