Tide gauge shows a drop of 6 inches in 12 minutes. On low shoreline slope that would represent a pretty good recedance.

Common? Nope. It was definitely a tsunami.

I didn't feel either of the quakes, but the blinds in my office swayed a bit.

Rift, not riff. A rift zone represents a weak area where magma can reach the surface.

Being our resident Hawaiian, all the attention is on you, phage.



I, for one, appreciate the info your providing. Essentially, you are our 'boots on the ground'.

I am not Hawaiian. Not a bit.

After five generations in the islands.

Weird.

OK, sorry.

But it is the fissures at the base that are... what?... “fissuring”??

And I was just trying to get the word out, my bad!

Do you think that is where the lava went? (OK that we don’t know the answer but was wondering what your thoughts were)

Glad you are safe!!

Yes. Leilani Estates is undergoing fissuring.

I have no doubt that is where the magma from Kilauea's summit has gone. How long it will continue to be there is anyone's guess.

I said didn't say native.

I mean, you live there and have knowledge and experience as far as what is going on over there more than us mainlanders.


I'm used to tornados and blizzards, for instance. You have more experience with earthquakes, hurricanes, and volcanos, at least I would presume.

I live in Hawaii. I have for my whole life (except for a year or two). That does not make me Hawaiian.

Sensible earthquakes are rare, as are hurricanes. There are very old volcanoes on the island on which I reside. They are scenic but they do not erupt.

On the whole, it's an environment friendly to humans and most any other creatures which show up here. Beneficial or otherwise.

Fair enough, Phage, fair enough.

Still kind'a astounds me how clueless the 'experts' sound on the tv from here.

Is it really that much of an unknown at this point?

Hope all is well Phage. And any other members residing on yonder.

Forget TV "science", for the most part.

Yeah, what's going to happen over the next weeks, months, and years is pretty uncertain. As far as Puna goes.

In your opinion what is the probable scenario and what is the worst case scenario?

Understanding that those are both open-ended as far as interpretation goes.

Probable, no idea.

Of course virgins are in short supply these days........

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


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?


Dang, that's fun. When I lived upcountry Kula in the '80s, we'd go down and steal pineapples too. We would also hop in those sugar cane field water flumes at night and go ripping through the fields.

I honeymooned in Kamuela and went to see the volcano, it was surreal. I always wondered if the volcano I was living on would blow ... Haleakala.

I'm glad I left Hawaii, just didn't feel right. However, the coast of Cali isn't much safer!

Wow that is very disrespectful. What does pineapple have to do with being Hawaiian? Hawaiian is a race, you can't just live there and "eat pineapples" then all of a sudden you are Hawaiian.

That's a direct equivalent to someone saying, oh you lived in the ghetto and eat watermelon so therefore you are African American.

Ignorant.
