Kilauea Volcano Still Very Dangerous for Hawaiians

The Kilauea volcano has spewed lava for the past week, forcing approximately 2,000 residents to evacuate and destroying roughly 24 homes. Folks should be aware that the Hawaiian volcano could spew boulders the size of refrigerators for miles around. Kilauea is capable of hurtling 10 ton boulders for miles, interrupting airline traffic and endangering everyone and everything underneath the incoming rocks.

“You don’t want to be underneath anything that weighs 10 tons when it’s coming out at 120 mph.” said Charles Mandeville, who serves as the Volcano Hazards Coordinator for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
