The Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory reports continuous low magnitude earthquake activity along the east rift zone in lower Puna which includes Leilani Estates, Nanawale Estates, to the coastal area of Kapoho.


Due to this activity Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory indicates an eruption is possible.  Because it is not possible to predict where an eruption could occur, the areas that could be affected are Nanawale Estates, Leilani Estates or Kapoho.

Due to the possibility of an eruption, the following are issued:


  • Prepare and review your emergency plans in case you need to evacuate.
  • Stay informed by listening to local radio stations for Civil Defense updates or call Civil Defense at 935-0031.

Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatories and your Hawaii County Civil Defense will continue to monitor the situation. You will be informed of any conditions that affect your safety.
