Why would anyone live on a volcano in the middle of an ocean?
HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, Hawaii – About 44 acres of coastline collapsed into the ocean this week, setting loose a glowing stream of lava that shot out from the newly exposed cliffside 45 feet above the water. The plume, 6 feet in diameter, sent up a tower of steam as it hit the water and began forming a ramp of new land.
The collapse of solidified lava shelf and sea cliff Monday was the largest since Kilauea Volcano began its current eruption in 1983.
Jim Kauahikaua, scientist-in-charge of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said a collapse warning was issued in June because the shelf had become large and had formed cracks. Large collapses had happened in the area before.
What moron thought of living on Hawaii? It’s a freaking volcanic island in the middle of the ocean. Where will they go when that sucker blows? What the typhoons don’t wash away, the volcano will eventually reclaim.
We all know that eventually the volcano(s) will blow. It’s time for the people of Hawaii to think about pulling out and leaving the islands now before it is too late.
I’d warn people to read what this is filed under but history tells me I’d be wasting my time.
