First Kilauea, now Mauna Loa - volcanic activity in Hawaii

Is that a reflection of public opinion in Britain?

The media has played a dispicable role in distorting Tommy Robinson and what he stands for, as well as defending the actions of a judge in Leeds and his illegal kangaroo court.


More Trouble in Hawaii; SECOND & Larger Volcano Begins Rumbling


1 August, 2018

For months, the world has watched in awe as the Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii's big island, has erupted. We are fascinated by its huge volcanic fissures, some running for miles, spewing molten lava hundreds of feet into the air, demolishing any roads, vehicles, homes or businesses it encounters.
Now, however, there could be new - and far worse - in store for that same big island of Hawaii:  Mauna Loa, the largest volcano on the islands, has begun rumbling with numerous earthquakes, some above ground toward the mouth of the massive volcano!
So far today - as of 4:45 PM eastern US time, there have been eight (8) earthquakes on or in Mauna Loa.   And while they haven't been earth-shattering, they haven't been exactly tiny either.
According to the US Geological Survey, the following quakes have taken place ON or IN Mauna Loa directly today . . and they're getting STRONGER and rising ABOVE ground level meaning inside the elevated portion of the volcano itself:

When you see the red colored Depth preceded by a minus symbol ( -) that means the earthquake was centered ABOVE the level where seismographs are located.  The only way that can take place is when the earthquake is centered in the visible mountainous area that rises above typical flat ground.  In other words, whatever is happening, is moving HIGHER inside the volcano.   
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand what is happening: Lava is rising up inside the elevated portion of the volcano.
There is no reason to panic.  There are literally dozens of experts down in Hawaii monitoring things and if there is some type of "warning" that must be issued, rest assured they will do so.
However, prudence dictates that the general public pay close attention when developments like this take place, because while government experts have a duty to alert the public, they also have "other concerns."  Like tourism.
Hawaii has encountered an almost fifty percent drop in tourism since Kilauea began spewing lava.  If the public now hears an even large volcano is rumbling, it could crush Hawaii's tourism for months.
No tourism means companies close-up, employees get laid off, government has to pay unemployment and food stamps. 
So government is forced to engage in a sort of balancing act, knowing they have a duty to protect the public, but not wanting to scare people away.
That's why I am reporting this.  I think folks should know TO KEEP AN EYE for themselves.  
Others who may be thinking of a trip to Hawaii, should also keep an eye.  It's just good common sense.
