A message from COUNTY OF HAWAII

This is a Civil Defense message for Tuesday morning, May 1, 2018 at 9:30.

The Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory reports increased shallow earthquake activity in the Puna district below Kilauea volcano in the area between Pu’u O’o and Highway 130.

This means an outbreak of lava in a new location could occur. While it is not possible to predict where an outbreak could occur, the area east of Pu’u O’o is a possible location.

Due to the increased seismic activity, the following are issued:

  • Department of Parks and Recreation has shut down the lava viewing area in Kalapana due to the proximity to the increased hazardous activity.
  • Lower Puna area residents are advised to stay informed by listening to the radio and Civil Defense text alerts and social media sites; this station will be updated.
  • For up to date scientific information, go to active links on our Civil Defense website

Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatories and your Hawaii County Civil Defense are continuing to monitor the situation. You will be informed as conditions change. Thank you.
