They may cause tsunamis as well, but I hardly think it would compare to the type of tsunami one of the islands exploding or a serious earthquake would create, however landslides would certainly occur in the event one of these other things happened.

Beautiful, for sure


I hope to soon one day lay on the beach with my beautiful girl and let reality be behind me..

Thank you for the pictures, was a nice reminder of Earths beauty. People need to travel as much as they can before all craziness takes its chaotic course on this planet.

Yes. Those landslides were epic...to put it mildly. A 10,000 foot high, twenty mile long mountain tumbling into the sea.

Not all at once though. A series of monsters over a period of a million years or so.

I retrospect to the "explosive" scenario (no doom porn intended, Hawaii is indeed a gem of the world


When Krakatoa blew it was, and is considered to be the loudest sound ever heard in modern history, with reports of it being heard up to 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from its point of origin.

That's from where you are to Do The MAth

-far away.


On August 27 a series of four huge explosions almost entirely destroyed the island. The explosions were so violent that they were heard 3,110 km (1,930 mi) away in Perth, Western Australia and the island of Rodrigues near Mauritius, 4,800 km (3,000 mi) away.[4] The pressure wave from the final explosion was recorded on barographs around the world, which continued to register it up to 5 days after the explosion. The recordings show that the shock wave from the final explosion reverberated around the globe seven times.[19] Ash was propelled to a height of 80 km (50 mi). The sound of the eruption was so loud it was reported that if anyone was within ten miles (16 km), they would have gone deaf.

Whether or not they are the same type of volcanoes or not the possibility that Hawaii could experience something similar exist as far as my opinion is concerned, thanks for sharing.

Took a picture of this when I visited Kilauea a few years ago. Thought you might appreciate it!

I brought home many rocks from Hawaii and rather than be cursed it seems my family has been extremely blessed, more so than before taking the rocks. I also brought home coral samples and black sand along with a few samples of plant life. Hawaii is a beautiful place and I've visited three of the islands. Hopefully I will get to return within the next few years......crosses fingers!

Ahhh Hawaii...takes me back when I visited back in 2001 for my honeymoon. We stayed on Maui for a week. Just a great place with great people. Would love to go back but the 9 hour flight is somewhat of a downer for me.

That is awesome, I have every desire to visit, my parents went for their 25 anniversary, the flight was a bit long but they really had a great time, my father even played golf with Frank Gifford and OJ (before you know what) when they were there for the Pro Bowl. They took an insane helicopter sight seeing tour that took then down into the volcano (not sure which one), they played Superman music and my Father lost his cookies
I would not be so inclined. They did bring me back a really beautiful piece of volcanic rock (misplaced since then). Thanks for stopping by.

As I was saying Parents went there, even though I would love to see the islands in person, I do not know if I could take a 13 hour plane trip to get there (over water). I may have to settle for virtual tours and living vicariously through others.

Sure you can, because it's worth it. I myself have been blessed enough to have spent a lot of time on the Hawaiian islands. I have been to Oahu, Maui and Kauai (the best of them all) many times throughout my life. Actually I am going back this summer.

It's a special place, and the Hawaiians are a great people. If you choose to go, I would recommend Kauai because it's the most beautiful and really is what one would envision Hawaii to be. Remember the show fantasy Island back in the 70's? Anyway, it was filmed on Kauai. Jurassic park the same, and many other classics as well.

It's green everywhere, and waterfalls are all over the island. I was lucky enough to fly over the entire Island in a chopper. I looked down on the wettest place on Earth which was just above one of the tallest waterfalls in the World.

Then, if that was not enough good fortune, I took a horseback expedition into the Kauai wilderness where we got to stop at this hut, have lunch and swim under a waterfall in this fresh waterhole. We had some Hawaiian BBQ chicken, ribs and some island coleslaw that was so good. This was deep into the Kauai backcountry and the guide was telling us all about the different tropical vegetation and wildlife. We did much more too in the Ocean, but that's another story.

Basically, I have been all around this planet, and Northern Kauai is without a doubt the most beautiful place I have ever set foot on. ~$heopleNation

Thanks for sharing sounds amazing alright, just not much of a flyer and the only way I am ever in a copter I hope never happens. Any pictures to share would be nice, vicariously living through them....

I have lived in Hawaii since 1987, most of the time on Oahu but also spent 4 years on Kauai. Growing up an Army brat I have been many places but the cultural side of living in Hawaii, being a Kamaaina, is something that is much deeper than most places. Most of us who live here do honor the mythology, even when it collides with our own beliefs. I am Christian, however I do "honor" the Hawaiian beliefs. I do not take lava rock from one island to another (other than what is on my shoes of course
. ). I also treat heaius as sacred areas, not taking pictures at certain ones and practicing other acts at others.

As for the more scientific concerns....we live in an earthquake zone and yes there is always a chance of tsunami from a Big Island collapse but to be honest we prep just as much for the occasional hurricane.

I was really lucky when my family moved to Hawaii, I spent my high school, college and now my adult years here and can honestly say while the cost of living is sky high....I love living here and it's home to me!

Ironically, it is volcanoes that makes a place spectacular, just look at New Zealand.

Volcanoes make for spectacular scenery and makes the land incredibly fertile so place looks a healthy saturation of green everywhere!
