It's just getting worse.  How are our brothers faring? Do we know yet?

“Ballistic blocks” the size of microwaves have shot from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano in what may be the start of explosive eruptions that could spew huge ash plumes and hurl smaller rocks for several kilometres, the US Geological Survey said.

Such eruptions, last seen nearly a century ago, have been a looming threat since Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, erupted nearly two weeks ago.

So far it looks like air travel has not been affected by the eruption.

 

They are not sure but they hope this eruption marks the end of this level of activity.

 

Just saw that on The Weather Channel

this island will be soon uninhabitable  .....I think our Brother's are all gone by now....at least somewhere safe....

It is a big island and the volcano is just in the lower part for now. We have friends on the Kona side that are doing fine.

Hotels and authorities are desperately trying to reassure guests the Big Island is safe. They point out that the island is as big as Delaware and Rhode Island combined, and the lava flows are more than 30 miles away from most tourist areas.

"When this is over, I'll be surprised if more than 10 miles are affected," County Mayor Harry Kim said.

Although the eruptions and evacuations have made news, the vast majority of life is unaffected on the Big Island: Schools are open, the sun is shining and golfers are putting away. Tourists stroll the shore in Hilo as the waves gently roll in from the Pacific; poke restaurants are offering fresh-caught fish and locally roasted coffee.

The current volcanic activity is on the south east side of the island at the Volcano National Park. JW.ORG doesn't show any Kingdom Halls in the affected area,

There are many congregations on the Big Island that are not near the volcanic activity.

We vacation at Waikoloa Village and have attended meetings there, We have also attended at an older KH just above Captain Cook that had windows facing the ocean.
