    Scientists are saying conditions may be right for Mt. Kilauea to build pressure and explode. The lava eruption pictures and videos are amazing.

    It really is only a matter of time. The entire Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanic activity in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Tectonic plates, and Magma don't care if humans decided to put a bunch of buildings on the islands.

    That is why I don't wish to live on, or near, a volcano, nor do I want to live in areas that are prone to frequent, large, earthquakes. I learned that lesson when living in Japan.

    Same for living on the shores on our east coast .Beautiful scenery but at a price we all are expected to rebuild when mother nature destroys it .

    Mother Nature has Her own ways of working. She cannot harm herself, just us. Much of the damage we suffer when natural disasters take place is of our own making. We spend FAR too much time working against the reality of nature rather than working with it.

    Surprisingly, you get used to the earthquakes. Now when it gets above the 7.0 mark, the pucker factor goes up.

    In Anchorage, we've felt the effects of a few volcanos. The ash is terrible. It can suck the air right out of your lungs. I can't imagine throwing lava into the mix.

    It's true - you really do get used to the earthquakes. I lived in Fairbanks for a long time and we had earthquakes real often - but we never had the volcanic ash that you got. As remember - it had to be above a 5.6 or so to even get our attention.
    I wouldn't live in Hawaii for any money. Those islands are all formed by volcanoes.

    I got alerts from usgs website due to work. When ever they would upgrade a warning or sn actual eruption, I prayed the wind wasn't blowing our direction.

    I was only alerted about an earthquake if it was a 5 or greater.
