The potential for a catastrophic eruption? Is the new underwater volcano Loihi going to take over from the big island volcanoes? Will this be a slow and orderly transfer of magma or could things get very dangerous? And catastrophic?
I had a series of bad dreams years ago where the big island experiences some incredible eruptions .... then everything stops. Everything. Weeks of quiet while pressure starts to build up. Then a series of growing big earthquakes.
Then suddenly all activity gets transfered to Loihi, the underwater volcano 20 miles SE of the big island. A truly catastrophic underwater eruption. Then the big island of Hawaii suddenly sub-ducts over 5000 feet. One mile in 30 seconds.
The results are a series of Pacific Rim Mega Tsunamis. Three hundred footers on the American West Coast. It was only a series of bad nightmares. I was healing up from a bad lower back injury. Traction. But ...the dreams stays with me.
No issues for Honolulu. Prevailing winds are ENE. We have friends currently, on the other side of the big island, in the Kona area. Everything is fine there. Not so fine however for the people in the Pahoa area.
