Up to seven fissures now open in the area. Looks like things are ramping up instead of cooling down. I hope folks over there are all cleared out by now. Good thing is still no lives lost thanks to slow moving lava.

Yesterday one of the reports said the lava lake in the Kilauea crater had drained. That lava had to go somewhere.

Note to news anchors and reporters: when there is a volcano erupting, nobody wants to see video of your face.

Would love if would leave out the 1/4 of the screen banners when they run video. They were showing it crawling down the road saying looks at it on the road all I saw was freaking banners!

Here's a question I didn't see addressed: What are those new fissures going to do to homeowners whose houses were not destroyed? Since future eruptions tend to follow past eruptions those neighborhoods are now hot spots where nobody is going to be able to live even if this outbreak stops without getting worse. Leaving near a volcano is one thing, living directly on top of an active fissure is quite another. I know people in volcano zones pay a hefty premium on their insurance and their houses will be covered if lost. Are their houses covered if not destroyed, but devalued to essentially zero? Are people whose houses were lost able to recoup their actual property value for their lots being inhabitable or will they only get what the physical house replacement value is and lose the equity in the property itself?

Anyone here from Hawaii that carries volcano insurance on their homes that can shed some light on this?

Keywords : There have been many extinctions.... .... ....lets hope that doesnt happen anytime soon.

I never had a favorite youtuber before but I think I have one now with "Physics Girl", just stumbled upon her video while googling up what and how about this phenomena.

Wait a minute, I havent booked a holiday trip yet ... I am thinking there may be deals to be made from panicking tourists abandoning their trips? Gonna look into that :).
