Kilauea
« on: May 07, 2018, 01:17:40 am »
Do we have any Nauvoodies affected by the Kilauea eruption? I have friends who have a son on his mission in Hawaii. He was on the Big Island for awhile (that's where the active volcanoes are, & the city of Hilo), but he is now on Oahu (where Honolulu is). The mission president & his wife have been diligent in looking after everyone, & some missionaries are helping with evacuations where residents have been ordered to leave. The entire state is under one mission.

About 30 homes have been destroyed. I haven't been there, but I understand this is not a Vesuvius or St. Helens type of eruption that buries everything & everyone for miles around in an explosive shower of lava & ash. It's more like small eruptions from numerous fissures, where molten lava keeps coming out & engulfing whatever it encounters, burning anything combustible. So archaeologists 1500 years from now will probably find something different from what the Pompeii discoverers found. Pompeii & the neighboring cities were found by people digging for foundations, & volcanic ash soil is diggable. I don't think a lava flow, once it sets, is as easy to excavate, so whatever or whoever is buried in it might stay there for quite some time.

Hawaii's contribution to fighting global warming is to emit Sulfur Dioxide. Thanks Hawaii.

I have an uncle who has a home directly in the path of one of the lava flows.

We hope your uncle is OK, JLM. Prayers going forth for everyone affected by the lava flows, ash, vog, & evacuation orders.
