I called her today.

She's doing OK. She's 9 miles from it, but until yesterday she could hear nothing. No impact on her yet!
Today it sounds like gunshots going off.

Sorry for the delay in posting. Yes, I am doing well, its the weirdest situation yet. More sounds, mostly like long range artillery fire ( big booms, then nothing for a while, then another one, etc...)
Still for me though, no smell, can't see anything, and thank goodness no more big quakes. Even the explosion at the summit yesterday morning was not felt or seen. The tradewinds cooperated and blew the ash away. We are hoping that continues as ash fallout is now a big concern.
More lava flowing and now its 'new lava' - up til today all the magma coming out was from the 1940's! Amazing what scientists can now figure out. The 'new ' lava is pahoehoe, smooth and faster flowing.
This amazing property is in its path at Kapoho, with its fabulous hot ponds and crystal clear water. It may all be in jeopardy. Uncredible!

Check out the 6pm Saturday Civil Defense msg. - lava expected to cross highway in a few hours, heading toward State Park at the Ocean:

"East Rift Zone Eruption - 5/19/18 6PM -Lava Half-mile from Hwy 137

This is a Civil Defense Message for Saturday, May 19 at 6:00 in the evening.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory continues to monitor active flows which have joined together into one flow. The flow is currently in state forest reserve lands and heading in the general direction of MacKenzie State Park. No structures are threatened at this time. Residents should be aware that the lava flow is currently about half a mile from Highway 137 and, at the current rate, may cross the highway within the next five to six hours.

Should the lava enter the ocean be aware of the laze hazard and stay away from any ocean plume.

◾Laze is formed when hot lava hits the ocean sending hydrochloric acid and steam with fine glass particles into the air.
◾Health hazards of laze include lung, eye and skin irritation.
◾Be aware that the laze plume travels with the wind and can change direction without warning"

I’m not a religious man, but I am praying for you and all you islanders.

From reading the thread, you seem to be in a somewhat safe area at this time and I hope it stays that way. How does this eruption compare to any past? Is this looking like it may change the island in a big way? I’m not to versed on volcanic eruptions, but this seems to be way outside the norm. I know it is one of the most active in the world, but is this way outside of the norm or has this happened, in this magnitude, before on the big island?
