hi guys – I’ve been away for a while, so I’ve not read the local news. But, at Halema’uma’u crater, there was a small explosive event. And the sulfur steam vent is now picking up some ash. Image is from HVO.
All of this means that you should have more incentive to come back to Honolulu and volunteer to help at luau. Maybe, book a hotel in Hilo and go visit Volcanoes National Park AFTERS.
