Is one causing the other? I haven't heard the chronology.

Although the earthquakes come first, they don't cause the eruptions. Both are caused by shifting magma. Now, what causes the magma to shift ... I don't think anybody knows!

Last I heard, even more fissures opened up spewing lava. There are now something like a dozen or so fissures: It sounds like something out of a terrible nightmare, where the ground opens up under your feet and starts gouting molten rock. *shudder* Fortunately for Hawaii, their volcanoes aren't the explosive kind.

Uh... yeah. There is no way I would ever live on Hawaii. If something bad happens, there's nowhere to go.

You should watch news interviews of Southern Californians explaining how they will avoid a massive earthquake. They'll all get in their cars and hit the highways. Like they don't notice EVERY DAY that the highways are hopelessly clogged with only a fraction of the traffic. And they think the airports won't be closed. They think they can outrun an earthquake, all the way across the fault line.


Now I wonder: do sharks flock to earthquake or volcano, or away?

You mean earthquake fissures can't create new avenues for pressured magma to rise?

There should also be a build up of gases over the magma. Gases and magma moving together. Also this is how these islands came into being.

Not an expert, but I doubt it. Earthquakes are an indication of a magma moving through the rock, and a reliable precursor to an eruption. Generally, as the magma rises to the surface, the earthquakes get more and more shallow. As the magma forces its way to the surface the rocks start to break and slip; that is the cause of the quakes.

Is the traffic still a constant continuous traffic jam from sunup until Prime Time? Or is there now a break between Morning, Noon, and evening Jams?

Hard to forget the 10-lane parking lot Interstates that Southern Californians strove for.

Very true. Not really a worry for me though since I live in the center of the land mass that's virtually earthquake and hurricane free. At least for now. I don't even like going to downtown Milwaukee, let alone Chicago. I don't like being around that many people even in ideal conditions.

For me though, it's a mental thing. When I look at a map of Hawaii surrounded by that vast ocean, it I get claustrophobic just imagining it. I couldn't actually even visit Hawaii, let alone live there.

I haven't been to Milwaukee in years. I used to live just south of it for about 5 years though, right around the time I joined this site.

I didn't mean anything bad about Milwaukee. I actually prefer it to Chicago if I absolutely HAD to go since it's not nearly as crowded. All I was saying is that I'm not a big city guy, and I have an aversion to big crowds.

I think the last time I was actually in Milwaukee was for Summerfest. Got to see Tom Petty and Eddie Vedder duet American Girl. Awesome concert. RIP Tommy boy. You will be missed.

Well they don't call Milwaukee the armpit of Wisconsin for nothing.
The Interstate has been getting rebuilt to improve the flow of highway traffic. After Goobernator Doylie looting the Highway funds for his Decade, now Scott Walker is allowing roads to be built.

Well! So much for Hawaiian volcanoes not being explosive! And this, AFTER the magma receded so quickly it cause the dome to collapse!





So, I tend to think of volcanoes as two types: The kind that burble and squirt lava, and the kind that blow up. I always thought that eruptions started big, and died down. Boy was I wrong!

I read a description of the eruption of Krakatoa. It was, at one time, a small volcanic island between two larger islands, with three distinct ash/lava cones. The eruption actually started kind of small. IIR correctly it was the smallest peak that started steaming and spewing ash first. This went on for a couple of days, then the next one in line took it up a notch and IT started steaming and spewing ash, even more violently than the first. This went on for a few more days, and finally the last and largest peak started to SERIOUSLY spew ash ... people on nearby islands went into caves to escape the sulfur fumes, acid, and ash. You would think that after a week the pressure would have been relieved, but no. The entire island was literally blown off the face of the earth with the largest volcanic explosion in western recorded history.

Not that I think this is going to happen in Hawaii, but it definitely puts to rest my naive ideas on how volcanoes progress!

I have learned that these volcanoes progress or sequence in the same Dr direction, generally. In the direction of the newest plate friction. Don't know specifically about Krakatoa.
But maybe this means that newest island of Hawaii will have a big growth spurt in a few days or weeks. Or maybe that newest island was a precursor to this activity.

I didn't catch what the timeline was, in hours. Dome collapse? Magma retraction? Eruption?

This thread is 12 days old. I think I started it the day after the flurry of events.
I'm interested in a satellite shot of the whole island, and how much this activity is covering.

I never really thought traffic around Milwaukee was all that bad, but even better for you if you guys and gals are getting an upgrade to the transit system there.

I spent the first 25 years of my life south of Chicago. Try getting anywhere during rush hour on 294 or 95th street. They're really trouble in Oak Lawn and Evergreen Park. 95th street has a 4-5 mile stretch that is 4 lanes long and you still get stuck in horrible traffic. Wasn't like that when I was a little kid, but you could never pay me to move back to the area I grew up in.

My traffic comparisons are to L.A.
Parked on the interstate for several minutes between each time you can move forward, about 10 feet - for a half hour, or hour. The Interstate. 9 Lanes wide, each direction. 1 person per car, every car (if any car had a 2nd occupant, they would be in the Carpool Lane doing 55mph). Every day. Either 3 times per day or just continuous from dawn to dark.
Using 30 miles worth of gas to get a mile on the interstate, you learn not to let your tank get too low before hitting the onramp. It really is faster to take sidestreets, with 10 traffic lights per mile, and also hopelessly clogged.

You're saying that L.A. is that bad, right? Not Milwaukee?

I really didn't drive on the expressway around Milwaukee much when I lived up there, but the side streets were wonderful compared to where I grew up. They were actually even better than where I am now, which still isn't all that bad compared to Chicago and at least the south/west suburbs.

I've never been to L.A. I can only imagine how bad it is out there.

Yes, L.A. Sorry I wasn't clear.
I don't think Milwaukee had more than 4 Lanes other than Merge, Split, Express Lanes. I think they were rated for 8 Lanes in most of the central loop (I-94 from The Zoo to Airport, and I-494), so when construction is completed, these lanes might be there.

I just saw on the news today bubbling fountains of molten lava. The height of these continuous fountains was not stated, and I didn't see any reference to gauge size or height.

I don't recall such vividly displayed bubbling lava before.
Has there ever before been a lava spouting of this style, or duration, or pace, since the advancements of commonly available High Definition recording equipment?

Does anybody know the vertical distance these gouts are achieving?

Had Milwaukee on the brain when you made your last post about "bubbling fountains of molten lava" and it made me think of Bubblers. I never did start calling water fountains Bubblers, but I'll be damned if 8 years after I moved from the Milwaukee area I'm not still calling pop "soda".

After some months in Tennessee, I was having trouble spelling a word for a letter home. Spelling was never a problem for me. It wasn't a word - it was y'all, or yawl. But I never started calling Root Beer "coke" at least.


Have you seen those fountains of lava in Hawaii? Looks just like a bubbler, except slightly slower and the red/orange color seems surreal.

News reported cascading gouts 150 feet into the air. That helps add perspective to the video.

Has anybody seen such vivid video before this month?

And apparently a lava bomb already landed on one guy's leg.
And flying lava at the sea could sink ships if they get too close.


150 feet. How high does Old Faithful blow?

Today lava took out a geothermal power plant. I wonder how the long term energy outlook is.

My town is in the midst of 4 days of record temperatures. Although Hawaii likely has a breeze, I wonder if lava is increasing the island temps.
The Trade Winds are supposed to be slowing.

I wonder if there is earthquake or lava or fissure insurance for Hawaii property. Or if it is too expensive to be purchased.


Cruise ships have cancelled stops for May, June, July. That only lost $3 Million in tourism money.


I still have not seen an island-wide map showing the locations of fissures and lava rivers. That just seems weird. Are today's pretend news kids all ADHD tards? Lots of close-ups but no perspective, or even direction of the shots, or wind flows.


The volcano is about 30 miles from Hilo, which is on the east side. But how far is it from the ocean? Are the fissures opening next to the oceans or deep inland?

It doesn't sound like Hawaii has any lava control plans, like Italy had.

Found some maps after active looking. Seems the volcano is about 8 miles from the ocean, along the ESE side. But the fissures are not around there. Fissures are on the eastern tip of the island, maybe 30-40 miles from the volcano summit. Fissures are about 3-4 miles from the ocean. These are East and a little north of the summit, from what I can see.

Not an expert, but I doubt it. Earthquakes are an indication of a magma moving through the rock, and a reliable precursor to an eruption. Generally, as the magma rises to the surface, the earthquakes get more and more shallow. As the magma forces its way to the surface the rocks start to break and slip; that is the cause of the quakes.

You should watch news interviews of Southern Californians explaining how they will avoid a massive earthquake. They'll all get in their cars and hit the highways. Like they don't notice EVERY DAY that the highways are hopelessly clogged with only a fraction of the traffic. And they think the airports won't be closed. They think they can outrun an earthquake, all the way across the fault line.
Don't remind me, she growled, I live near LA.


I hadn't thought about it lately, but sounds like volcano earthquakes are a completely different animal than faultlines such as California, which were the earthquakes I had been familiar with.

I don't think I've been paying attention to which type whenever I've heard news of an earthquake. But it's not like the TelePrompTer readers were going to tell us.

I searched * kilauea volcano map * and immediately came up with this

https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/kilauea/multimedia_maps.html

which had this and back through May 18

May 27, 2018
Kilauea Lower East Rift Zone Fissures and Flows, May 27, 2:30 p.m. HST

Map as of 2:30 p.m. HST, May 27, 2018. Shaded purple areas indicate lava flows erupted in 1840, 1955, 1960, and 2014-2015. (see large map)

Looks like the fissures are South along the coast from Hilo Bay. And the summit, the fissures, and Hilo form a triangle of equal sides.

The new volcano Loihi is still underwater, but is closer to the summit than the fissures are. I had heard mention in early May that Loihi was erupting, but haven't heard updates. I forget how far it was below surface. Wonder how long before it breaches, and then has hardened surface above sea, and then joins with the big island.

I had thought Hawaii only had 3 or 4 islands, but it looks like 8 actually. Weird that only 2 have volcanoes on them.

I did read several sources, wiki seemed to be the least informative or up to date. Searching with the term HUGO seems to get better results.
One more recent eruption was Feb 1998. The 2005 and 2007 activities were unconfirmed it seems. The 2014 activity has sparse info.


In May/June 2017 Loihi had 120 earthquakes but an eruption has not been confirmed. Since then, other activity has distracted from Loihi, like January's activity on Kilauea.

You hit the trifecta !!!

I looked around a number of sites, including the USGS and they're all in agreement. Loihi has not erupted at this time.

USGS: Volcano Hazards Program HVO Lo'ihi
https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/loihi/
Jun 14, 2017 - An eruption at Lo'ihi has yet to be observed, but research indicates that eruptions are both explosive and effusive.

Eruptions of Hawaiian Volcanoes [USGS] Seismic data also indicate that the deepest earthquakes beneath Loihi merge with the deep earthquakes beneath neighboring Kilauea. This downward convergence implies that Loihi apparently is tapping the same deep magma supply that Kilauea and Mauna Loa tap.

http://www.geo.cornell.edu/geology/GalapagosWWW/LavaTypes.html
Aa forms when lava flows rapidly. Under these circumstances, there is rapid heat loss and a resulting increase in viscosity. When the solid surface crust is torn by differential flow, the underlying lava is unable to move sufficiently rapidly to heal the tear. Bits of the crust are then tumbled in and coated by still liquid lava, forming the chunks. Sometimes the crust breaks in large plates, forming a platy aa. Pahoehoe forms when lava flows more slowly. Under these circumstances, a well-developed skin can form which inhibits heat loss. When a tear in the skin does form, it is readily healed. Both magma discharge rate and the steepness of the slope over which the lava flows affect the flow rate. Thus aa lavas are associated with high discharge rates and steep slopes while pahoehoe flows are associated with lower discharge rates and gentle slopes.

Apparently lava took out hundreds of homes in one day, yesterday Tuesday.
Prior to that, I had heard about 80 homes total, stretching over a month.

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


As of now it's over 200 homes. Just check out this site, the flow velocity is insane.

I heard on NPR that the temperature of the outflowing lava is as high as you'd find in the mantle. it's flowing so quickly it doesn't even have time to cool down. That lava "fountain" that you see? It's over 200 feet high.

Some of the videos were visceral reminders of what the earth is really like, if you go down below your feet.

Maybe your ZH comment was directed at me. The only time I don't like ZH is when I'm in sarcasm mode. I always welcome Truth and Fact.
