Eruption update: The lava breakouts are about 20 miles away from Volcano Village, where our property is located. Under normal conditions, gases and fumes are blown in a different direction than from the lava area toward Volcano Village. Further, over that distance, any gases would be so dilute as to not be an issue--with the possible exception of for highly sensitive people. Of slightly more concern are the emissions from the Kilauea Summit Crater which is just under 4 miles away. Some gases are released from there but are typically not an issue in Volcano Village because the prevailing winds blow them in the opposite direction. Recent explosive activity, which may continue for a while (such activity lasted for about 2 1/2 weeks during a similar event in 1924), has expelled volcanic ash, some of which has been deposited in Volcano Village, but most has been blown in the opposite direction. The ash is not toxic, but should be avoided. Currently, the main section of Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park is closed due to the potential for explosive activity, which can project larger rocks within the near vicinity of the crater. Our property photos include a map that shows the location of our property in relation to the volcanic activity.
