Hawaii goes on RED ALERT for ´major
eruption´ of Kilauea volcano as huge ash
plume billows 12,000 FEET into the sky
with the USGS warning of an ´explosive*

Hawaii´s Kilauea volcano could have a major devastating eruption at ´any time´, the US Geographical Survey has said. The volcano has been erupting for 10 days, and more than 2000 residents have already been evacuated. ´At any time, activity may become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent,´ the USGS said on Tuesday afternoon. A recent lowering of the lava lake at the volcano´s Halemaumau crater ´has raised the potential for explosive eruptions´ at the volcano, the organisation said. Plumes of smoke are reaching up to 12,000 feet into the sky and ash is raining on

I wouldn´t get within 20 miles of that thing. If she blows the victims will never be found.

Referring to the picture of golfers playing on while the ash cloud billows, I thought, "what else can one do but to play golf?" I wonder if the Hawaiians look at volcanic eruptions in the same light as Californians view earthquakes? I experienced quite a few good shakers without too much concern.

If the volcano goes off, the pros are speculating 30 - 60 ft. tsunamis hitting the neighboring islands. They are holding back on emergency siren to avoid panic and not to repeat another false emergency evacuation siren. Speculation on major eruption, within the next several days. WOW!

Where there is beauty, there is often danger. Pray the people near this devastation will have the good sense to get very far away from the danger that seems imminent.

That 6.9 quake a couple of weeks ago was not a fluke and not good news. With a recent lowering of the lava lake at Kilauea, creates an invitation for water to meet lava. These obviously don´t go good together. A potential Mt. St. Helens event in the making? Maybe. Planet Earth, what´s the plan?

Does the Daily Mail even bother using editors. They state lava temperatures reached 217 F. Good lord, a school child can see that that´s wrong, yet they stated it not once but twice. This is far from the first time I´ve seen really egregious errors in their articles. They need to slow down just a tad and take a look at what they´re posting.

Hopefully this isn´t a Krakatoa level eruption, otherwise the big island will, for all intents and purposes, collapse into the ocean, with all the extended problems worldwide, i.e. global cooling for several years.

#13, they probably left off a zero! Lava now over 1600f.
Praying for our fellow citizens in Hawaii.

I´ll never forget reading Plinius Secundus´s eyewitness account of the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. It was a heart-pounding account, even reading it in Latin!

There had been earthquakes and emissions from Vesuvius for several days or weeks prior to the cataclysmic eruption. After a while the people had become accunstomed to the rumblings; they lost a sense of caution.

Around 1600BC, the volcano which blew off half the island state of Santorini is believed to have contributed to the collapse of the Bronze Age.

Some scholars think that the destruction of Santorini became the stuff of the "myth" of Atlantis. Some excavations lead researchers to believe that at least some people were responsive to the the warnings and escaped to safety since no remains have been found under ash layers, unlike on Pompeii.

Seems to me that the heat is melting such a huge volume of rock and it´s forced to spread more widely, causing immense pressure. Cracks opening up in several places is a scary, as the lava has to go somewhere. So it seems the caldera is getting bigger and bigger.

Do we have any geologists here who can help us out with our speculations?
The Hawaiian islands are part a chain of volcanoes, Are any of the other islands active?

The one volcano "experts" seem most worried about is Yellowstone, known as a "super [massive] volcano". The entire Park at Yellowstone is in what was the caldera. Last eruption was something like 650,000+ years ago; its history is an eruption every 600,000 years. gulp

I think this article is clickbait. Hawaiian "shield volcano" eruptions involve extensive lava flows with relatively mild explosions. I don´t think the USGS believes that a Mount St Helens or Vesuvius type explosion is likely.

LONDON - Clarks, the British shoemaker and retailer, will return to large-scale manufacturing in the UK for the first time in over a decade when a new factory in southwest England joins plants in Vietnam and India in making its iconic Desert Boot. The 193-year-old firm, which operates in over 90 markets, said the new plant next to its headquarters in Street, Somerset, will have the capacity to make up to 300,000 pairs of Desert Boots a year and will give it shorter lead times.

More than two-thirds of Americans credit President Donald Trump for the country’s healthy economy, a new poll has revealed. The CBS News poll which was released on Sunday shows a sharp partisan divide, with Republicans more likely to give the president positive reviews while Democrats and Independents are not as complimentary. According to the survey, 35 per cent of Americans say Trump’s policies are ‘a great deal’ responsible for the economy. Around the same number - 33 per cent - say the president’s policies are ‘somewhat’ responsible. Nearly one-third say that Trump is either ‘not very’ or ‘not at all’ responsible for the strong

HAWAII´S volcano eruption has entered the Pacific Ocean - forming tiny particles of glass in the air and sending hydrochloric acid into the atmosphere in a threat to health as Kilauea´s activity becomes more severe. Kilauea has been erupting since the start of the month, with a total of 22 fissures having appeared since May 3. One of the most recent, fissure 20, has now split into two separate channels, wth the first now having crossed Highway 137 at the 13-mile marker and entered the ocean. The second channel is 400 metres away from the road, which is closed between Kamaili Road

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision.

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard
