    I gotta stop reading comments below these videos of lava on the big island. People are fricken ridiculous, not doing any research, thinking that everybody is in grave danger, yada yada... ya - i feel for those who lost their homes, and at the same time, it’s an island chain, made by this exact process, w/one of the most active volcanoes... IN THE WHOLE WORLD! Can’t really expect much different, and sometimes, it’s basically inevitable. Times like when people are building in zone 1. Kinda asking for it, almost...

    Y'all need to stop saying 'Oh,I hope they're safe,praying for Hawaii.' Cause while prayer is good,it ain't gonna stop lava.
    Now,if you actually want to help,volunteer for cleanup afterwards or go donate money to that part of the island (cause I know the whole damn thing isn't up to it's knees in flames and lava/magma).

    People wake up this is just the beginning it’s good it’s split into two just like Africa! Then the tsunami is going to come right to the West Coast! Maybe the Madrid is next? How do you think those rocky mountains were formed the Atlantic and Pacific plates push them together!Wake up they are not telling you that danger is Here! The salt mines in Utah and Louisiana will cave in to! More tidal waves toward Florida and Mexico! Start storing food and water! We have 12 to 15 months before all hell breaks loose! Pole shifts! Look at all the animals that are coming up to doors of homes and business Telling is we are to relaxed and not preparing as a country to get ready for this nightmare! Please for your little children’s sake do it for your loved ones! All the signs are flashing and screaming danger danger is here!

  • Bohdi Tree
    Bohdi Tree 28 days ago

    I expected it! My favorite psychic's said decades ago Hawaii would end up a harsh land to live. It feels like the Yellowstone Caldera will not erupt in our lifetimes, but this one is going all out and can take out almost all the Islands in Hawaii. At least of humans, green/animal life will grow around it. In fact, that might be Pele's intentions; cleansing. Usually, how far she goes depends on how bad the people are. Just saying.......Hawaii is a honey pot for the spoiled and bratty that want those perfect temps and a pool living right next to the sea. (b/c only the spoiled need both) To Pele, your either fighting against the spoiled brats, or your PART of the PROBLEM. Theres no middle ground any more. Too many of her own people have become complacent. Hawaii is NOT SJW California, and Pele WILL make everyone know.
