PREP FOR AN EXPLOSION: MAUNA LOA IS “WAKING UP”

According to mainstream media, Hawaiian volcano Mauna Loa is “waking up” and those in the area should “prepare for an eruption.” Hopefully, anyone who reads this site and lives in Hawaii already has a SHTF plan in place that includes the possibility of a volcanic eruption, so here’s what we know.

Over the past week, the Hawaii Volcano Observatory has recorded over 200 small magnitude earthquakes below the Mauna Loa volcano. These and other observations of increased activity in recent weeks all point to an increased flow of magma into the volcano’s shallow storage system, according to the HVO.

According to a report by Forbes, while scientists emphasize that an eruption isn’t necessarily going to happen today or tomorrow, this week the HVO put out a release urging that “now is the time to revisit personal eruption plans.”

Mauna Loa is not currently erupting and it remains at a Volcano Alert Level ADVISORY. Scientists say this alert level does not mean that an eruption is imminent or that progression to an eruption from the current level of unrest is certain. But many are urging preparedness.
