Madame Pele Speaks Out

June 19, 2018

Kathy and Pete Clapp are fortunately able to say that “We’re above most of that at 2600 feet” regarding the Vog that the Kilauea Volcano eruption is spewing out. They live a safe distance from the volcano in the Kailua-Kona area on the Big Island of Hawaii. He and Kathy are “not happy”, though, when they go down the hill to Costco. The air quality is not good there nowadays. He says that it’ll take a while for the volcanic activity to subside but it will happen when a good lava tube gets flowing to the ocean.
