Here on the Big Island, in the lower Puna district, the Kapoho and Kalapana areas, are about to be cut off by lava. It’s a place called “Four Corners”. The intersection of highways 137 and 132 will soon be covered with lava, cutting off access to Red Road. Evacuations have begun.
I will miss the tree tunnels on Red Road (Hwy 137). They will either be cut off forever, or until the lava stops and the Honua cools. The shoreline is absolutely stunning. With its rocky cliffs and pristine Pacific ocean waters. There’s thousands of miles of ocean between East Hawaii and the Mainland America’s. The trade winds reach here first, and the air is the freshest in the world. The Pacific ocean doesn’t smell salty like the Atlantic ocean. There’s a deep blue hue within the water, with clear, but turbulent frothing, that warns of the power of Kanaloa.
The Lava Glow With Full Moon
However, now it’s Tutu Pele’s time. Her footsteps in Leilani Estates have destroyed over 80 structures, many are homes. In the above picture, I’m looking towards Pāhoa town towards the Lava in Leilani, the next town south from Pāhoa. There’s a full moon tonight with scattered rainfall. Luckily, the tradewinds are blowing westward from us. However, this is is affecting the lower Ka’u district towns of Pahala, Na’alehu, Waiohina, and parts of Kona. However, it’s has been that way long since the eruptions. We pray for them.
Ahalanui Park- Hot Springs
A popular spot for locals and tourists. The hot spring park of Ahalanui will be no more if the lava reaches this area. Naturally heated by underground lava flows, the water is warm and inviting. It sits right on the edge of the ocean where the Pacific sea waters feed the natural pond. In the map below, this park is just above Isaac Hale Park. Where the map lists Kapoho, and where four corners are located. The Hawai’i civil defense reports the lava flow is a half mile away from where four corners is located. The lava is fast moving. The lava is pāhoehoe (smooth) and fast moving. The lava has entered Puna Geological Venture (PGV) and covered two wells. So far, there has not been any hydrogen sulfur dioxide gas releases. We’re praying that Tutu Pele will move past what she’s reclaimed.
In the following video (credit Big Island Video News and USGS), note how the eruptions has killed the forest land around the Leilani fissures. The lava fountain is shooting 250-300 feet into the air. There are two lava ponds that have formed in the rift zone by the fissures. It all looks horrible, but a closer look at the map and you’ll see this has happened many times before. You live here, you know what you are rolling the dice for. Locals do what’s needed to help each other out. It’s what we do. Some of us do so very quietly.
Four corners is like a life experience. You stand at the crossroads of life. In life, there are no guarantees. No securities. The best you can do is to prepare. Plan for a disaster. Have a emergency kit to grab quickly in an emergency. Know what you need, who to call, and where to meet, to save yourselves and your family. Don’t rely on the government to help you. When you need the police: They’ll be there in minutes, when you have only seconds.
Now for some venting. The Fake News Media: ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, New York Slimes, New York Posts: All have falsely reported the activity on this island. This is journalism malpractice at its worse. This irresponsible crap has scared off tourism. This is an industry that employs many local people. It’s their livelihood. Yet the Fake News Media reported the island is blowing its top. Thanks media jackasses!
In our Constitution, there is a First Amendment provision for the media. Abused by leftists, that rather report half truths, and complete lies. There is no intellectual curiously with the Fake News Media. It’s all for TV ratings now. It’s like Joseph Goebbels Nazi propaganda of telling a lie often enough, eventually people will believe it. That’s what’s happening now in American news and entertainment.
Just like ABC’s decision to cancel the Roseanne Barr show. We all know Roseanne Barr is not a conservative, but the show is wildly popular with conservative working families. However, because of the popularity of the show’s middle America profile, and it’s President Trump leaning message, its struggling working family message for middle America, the executives at Fascist ABC decided to cancel it. Because of a tweet. BIG DEAL! Do you know how many racist hate-filled tweets, videos, and comments, by leftists that get ignored? IT’S A DOUBLE STANDARD!!!
ABC was already planning to tone down Roseanne’s show’s Pro-Trump, Pro-America, dialog down. They were just looking for an excuse to shut the show down. They got it, and immediately aborted. Yet, the fascists at ABC allow their other programs, like “The View” to continue to pollute the airwaves. Pure Leftist Hatred towards the American family. There are very few shows on network television that have a strong positive family message. Unlike many of the leftist shows that display open immorality. Both comedies and dramas. There once was a time when entertainment television had a moral message to the show. Some semblance of basic common decency and common sense. Those days are gone now. Which pushes the ratings of viewership down also. They are destroying their own product. I call this the cultural suicide of the American society. The rape of the culture. The media’s lack of intellectual decency for ratings adds to the coarseness in public discord.
When the executives at ABC/Disney decides to hire (for the sixth time) fascist foulmouthed Keeth Oberdouche, and allow the other racist, bigoted, fascist, trained monkey’s, to plant their mugs on my television set, then it’s time to find a more objective media for news and entertainment. Let’s not exclude Fox News and Shemp Smith, the Rachael Madkow brand of Fox Faux News Media. To hell with them all.
There. I feel better now!
