WOW What a Day, Night.
I have experienced Kilauea now for the 4th episode.
I must say this has been the most exhilarating and at times down right scary.
Not Knowing what to expect next. I don’t even think any of the scientists even knew what to expect.
I am 15 miles away from the Leilani Eruption and still it is very loud.
Night after night sounded like you were in a war zone.
Explosion after explosion.
Gassey, Howly, Growling and creaking from the ground.It still continues today May 18, 2018.
The sounds are hard to describe. If you have been to Disneyland in California and have been on the Pirates of the Caribbean and the sounds are like that. That is the best I know how to describe it. It’s all night and all day, with no end to the ride. It’s the night time sounds that get to you…. Here listen to this for awhile… Excellent video in the trenches by Ikaika Marzo https://www.facebook.com/ikaika.marzo
Then Kilauea Exploded @4:15 am May 17, 2018. Ash and Smoke filled the skies. I have seen the Vog in its intense stage. This was so much more dense, dark and the Scariest massive ash cloud I had ever seen. I have never seen anything in person like this.
I scrambled to close the windows and get the fans on for the dogs. It was very warm out. It had been nice and cool during the nights prior to all this activity. Actually we had just had a few intense rain showers. Some of the other islands flooded from the rain storm that had come over the islands. We all thank god for the moisture we had received prior.
We have a local Superman Ikaika Marzo. He has been there giving the real story since the day it broke out. Live action in the trenches reporter. He should be paid. When the CD is giving messages fissures have stopped proof comes that they are still flowing. It has been his reporting that kept the locals informed.
So now today is blue skies in Keaau. Leilani as of this morning had 22 live fissures with a river of pahoehoe. Pahoehoe is a very fast moving liquid lava. Unlike the slow moving lava that Leilani Estates eruption had been up until Yesterday May 17, 2018.
“PUNA STRONG”. The community had the community’s back as soon as this happened. Locals mobilized and set up. God Bless This Community of Strong People. Thank You to All of the Volunteers who help this community… You are AWESOME…
