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
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. 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. 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.
