Just what Hawaii needs for the winter months, a new tourist attraction.

I would assume they're all connected at the bottom.  It's all one hotspot.

Will be interesting to see if this affects the amount of snow this year. Any time you add particulate to the atmosphere, that nucleation site becomes a possible future snow flake--assuming other atmospheric conditions are right.

"Watch out for your caldera, Bud"
 
2022-11-30 2:43:38 PM  
I hiked down into the caldera on Haleakala and it is literally breathtaking after driving from sea level to 10,000 feet in about an hour.  You can get quite light headed.  If you visit Maui, you can take a shuttle to the top before daybreak to watch the sunrise at 10,000 feet, then ride a tour bike down the mountain as fast as you dare.

Pro tip: If you want to drive to Hana, don't rent a big ass SUV or a convertible penis substitute.  The tourists are pointing and laughing at you because the tour operators are mocking your stupidity and/or insecurity as you scrape the sides of their buses.

It's only 2 volcanoes isn't it?  But one of the volcanoes has 2 lava flows?

If Hawaii has to blow up for a good ski season this year, that's a price I'm willing to pay.

2 volcanoes are erupting. However, the only currently active flows are coming from Mauna Loa. Kilauea is technically erupting but it's all confined to the caldera for the time being (as it has for awhile now).

They may have also mentioned Mauna Kea in the article, and that would be a third, but not currently erupting, volcano in the area.

I hiked the crater in Kilauea about 6 years ago.  It is now under 10+ meters of lava.
The main concern I have now is not lava, but the vog.  USGS says the new fissures are blowing out about 250,000 tons of sulfur dioxide a day. That's not good for the lungs, and the wind is likely to be blowing towards Kona today.

There are a lot of erupting volcanoes on the planet. In terms of particulates, Hawaii doesn't really rate notice.

Here are the ones in US territory that USGS is monitoring: https://www.usgs.gov/programs/VHP/volcano-updates

The volcanoes demand virgins that at least have a history of regular bathing, so no.  Volcanoes have their standards, you know.

Leave that to me, as I am a Certified Virgin Inspector. First, we go out for the evening. then back to my place...yes, yes, I understand I live outside of Chicago and nowhere near Hawaii, you will just have to fly over here, and I will take care of the rest.

There were evacuations warnings in place because of that and the Red Cross opened up a couple shelters but they have closed the shelters already.

I haven't read the comments yet, but I just got back from the Big Island on Thanksgiving Day. Mount Kilaeua has been burbling for months. The whole "OMG KILAEUA HAS BLOWN" is media hype. I went to a flipping wine tasting on its edge a week ago today. It's gonna be okay.

As far as Mauna Loa, sure, if the lava flows onto Saddle Road, that'll suck for transportation. But Hawaiians will figure things out, because that's what they do. They're on an island of volcanoes. And typically a person can outwalk a lava flow of this type. This isn't Mt. St. Helens, y'all -- it's Mauna Loa, and she has a mind of her own.

Yeah, Maunakea hasn't erupted for 3 or 4 thousand years, and when it last did, it was vents down on the side of the mountain.  (In fact, those cinder cones right by the visitor station.)  But it's technicallynot extinct, so it could someday go again.

Hualalai, right above Kona, is still hot inside, last went in the... 1800s, I think?  That'd be a good choice if you wanted to have 3 go at once and make people panic over the possibility of all major airports on the island being wiped out...

Cadillac Escalade all the way around both sides of Maui. Yea, there were some hairy spots, and going around Mauna Kahālāwai counter-clockwise in the dark was a bit unnerving at times. I thought it was fun though. My wife, not so much.
