Earthquake swarm strikes Big Island of Hawaii
October   20,  2011  
WAIMEA, Hawaii (AP)
A 4.5-magnitude earthquake struck the north part of the Big Island and the shaking was followed by a series of smaller temblors.
The first quake struck 13 miles southeast of Waimea at about 2 p.m., the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was centered at a depth of 11.7 miles. About two dozen smaller quakes ranging in magnitude from 1.7 to 3.6 followed within two hours.

No tsunami alert was issued and there were no immediate reports of damage. Residents across the island reported feeling light to moderate shaking.
"When you feel a four-and-a-half at close range, it feels like a truck crashed into a building," said Weston Thelen, seismic network manager for Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
The smaller quakes were normal sizes for an aftershock sequence, he said, adding that they can continue at low levels for several days.

The vast island — spread across more than 4,000-square miles — was formed by several volcanoes. The latest earthquakes caused no detectable changes in the continuing eruption of Kilauea volcano, according to the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

Over the past 25 years, the north flank of Mauna Kea has experienced 10 earthquakes greater than magnitude 4.0, including Wednesday's event, at depths of 6 to 25 miles. Deep earthquakes in the region are most likely caused by structural adjustments within the Earth's crust due to the heavy load of Mauna Kea, the observatory said.

Adjustments beneath Mauna Kea during past similar events, such as in March 2010, have produced a flurry of earthquakes, with many small aftershocks occurring for days after the main quake.
A 6.7-magnitude earthquake that struck the Big Island on Oct. 15, 2006, damaged buildings and roads, but there were no serious injuries or deaths.

Quake, aftershocks shake HAWAII Big Island
October 20, 2011
A magnitude 4.5 earthquake on the western slope of Mauka Kea at 2:10 p.m. Wednesday rattled much of the island.
The earthquake was six miles northwest of the Mauna Kea summit centered at a depth of 11.6 miles and was followed by more than a dozen aftershocks, some as large as 3.6 on the Richter Scale.
Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory Seismologist Weston Thelen said the smaller quakes are normal sizes for an aftershock sequence. He said they can continue at low levels for several days.

The earthquake was the largest in a cluster of about 20 earthquakes on the north flank of Mauna Kea on Wednesday afternoon. Most of these aftershocks were too small to be felt, but, as of 3:30 p.m., two earthquakes with magnitudes greater than 3.0 had occurred in addition to the magnitude 4.5 event, according to Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

Over the past 25 years, the north flank of Mauna Kea has experienced 10 earthquakes greater than magnitude 4.0, including today's event, at depths of six to 25 miles. Deep earthquakes in this region are most likely caused by structural adjustments within the Earth's crust because of the heavy load of Mauna Kea, the observatory reported.

Adjustments beneath Mauna Kea during past similar events, such as in March 2010, have produced a flurry of earthquakes, with many small aftershocks occurring for days after the main quake. Given this history, it is possible that additional small earthquakes may be recorded in the coming days, the observatory reported.

Today's earthquakes caused no detectable changes on the continuing eruption of Kilauea Volcano.

Since early yesterday (Hawaii time), the volcano has experienced at least 38 earthquakes, some as large at M4.5, all centered NW of the main summit of Mauna Kea, all at depths between 14-19 km (see below), all below the crust under the Big Island. This is what a suspicious swarm looks like, where we have a strong focus of seismicity at depth under an active volcano – the question now is how persistent will this swarm be. More likely than not, these earthquakes will lead to nothing – and HVO says these earthquakes are “most likely caused by structural adjustments within the Earth’s crust due to the heavy load of Mauna Kea”. Remember, Mauna Kea is a huge point weight on the crust and upper mantle below Hawai’i, towering over 4,200 m / 13,800 feet above the surrounding seafloor, so a lot of stress can accumulate from the mass of the volcano. This means earthquakes are likely common as that stress builds.

5.0 earthquake Oahu, Hawaii Big Island
January  23, 2012   [b] HILO, Hawaii (AP)  
A magnitude-5.0 earthquake and several small aftershocks shook Hawaii's Big Island on Sunday, DEPT 5 miles.
The quake struck near Holei Pali beneath the south flank of [b]Kilauea volcano
in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park at 4:36 p.m.
The epicenter was about 25 miles south of Hilo and 220 miles southeast of Honolulu.
About 20 small aftershocks came in the hours that followed, the largest a magnitude-3.1 about 10 minutes after the original quake.
The temblor was widely felt in Hilo and throughout the island, with more than 500 people reporting that they felt light-to-moderate shaking.

Joe Lopez, 70, said he felt a "pretty good jolt" at his home in Hilo.
There have been no reports of injury or damage.
The quake struck near the so-called Holei Pali area of Kilauea south flank has had 16 earthquakes of magnitude-4.5 or greater in the past 50 years.
The observatory has not detected any significant changes in activity at the summits or rift zones of the Kilauea or Mauna Loa volcanoes.

Earthquake with the magnitude of ML4.7 in Hawaii Island
January 23, 2012
by Jón Frímann
Last night at 02:36 UTC (23.01.2012) there was an earthquake with the magnitude of ML4.7 in Hawaii Island.
This earthquake was felt according to what I have been reading about on the forum.
This earthquake activity is most likely due to changes in tectonic stresses in the area. Rather then anything volcanic.

5.0 Earthquake Hits Hawaii, At Least 20 Aftershocks Felt
January 23, 2012  -  5 miles deep

Residents and people vacationing in Hawaii on Sunday felt the effects of a magnitude 5.0 earthquake that rattled the area about 4 miles
south of the active Pu’u O’o crater on the  Kilauea volcano east rift zone.

Scientists monitor earthquake swarm at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano
February 23, 2012
– There have been 48 small earthquakes and counting on the Big Island as of Wednesday morning. Scientists at the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory are keeping an eye on a swarm of small earthquakes around the active Kilauea volcano. In its morning status report, HVO wrote that there “is an ongoing seismic swarm just northwest of the summit.” A swarm of shallow earthquakes started after midnight last night about 5 km (3 mi) northwest of Halema`uma`u Crater that was ongoing as of this posting. Forty-eight earthquakes were strong enough to be located beneath Kilauea: 39 quakes within the swarm so far at a maximum rate of 6/hr (including a preliminary magnitude-3.4 quake at 6:56 am), two deep quakes beneath the southwest rift zone, two beneath the southeast summit caldera, one within the upper east rift zone, four on south flank faults. Seismic tremor levels were low and dropped slightly during deflation. Most of the quakes have been in the magnitude 2.0 vicinity, but a few reached over 3.0. Seismic activity on the rift zone is not rare, however this number of small earthquakes is high for the present eruptive activity. –Big Island VN

Puna area on Hawaii Island shaken by mysterious force
February 24, 2012
PUNA, Hawaii – A noisy, unexplained shaking in the Puna area of Hawaii Island remains a mystery at this time, but it certainly has the area talking. A number of people in a triangular area between Seaview Estates, Leilani Estates, and Black Sand Beach Subdivision  report hearing a thunder-like sound, or an explosion, and feeling the ground shake around 9 a.m. on Wednesday. Folks leaving comments on the popular Punaweb forum are saying it happened around 8:42 a.m. John Drummond, the acting administrator of the Hawaii County Civil Defense, says that the incident cannot be explained at this point in time. Drummond says that he spoke to operators of Puna Geothermal Venture, the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, and personnel on the ground… no one has an explanation. One theory being considered is some sort of sonic boom, although who or what could have produced such an effect is presently unknown. News videographer Daryl Lee, who says he felt the shaking in Hawaiian Paradise Park, immediately hit the road in search of the source of the rumble. What he found were many folks around Puna makai who felt the same thing… but no answers. Drummond says luckily, there are no reports of damage as of 2 p.m. –Big Island VN

HAWAII - Magma Plume: Is Hawaii’s most active volcano about to enter a more violent phase?
February 24, 2012
A magnitude 4.1 earthquake rattled the summit of Kilauea tonight, continuing a swarm of small tremors that shook the region Wednesday. The latest quake, which hit at 9:11 p.m., was the strongest of the swarm so far and was centered 5 miles west of Volcano at a depth of 3.2 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The shaking was felt up to 75 miles away in Waikoloa, according to the USGS. A flurry of small temblors were recorded after the 4.1 magnitude quake. On Wednesday, USGS officials said a swarm of more than 60 small, shallow quakes — the strongest measuring magnitude 3.2 — were recorded in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Swarms of small quakes have been recorded before in the area and sometimes signal a shift in the eruption of the east rift of the volcano, they said. –Star Adviser

Seismic tremors increasing: On Friday, February 24th, 2012, a 4.3 magnitude earthquake, the strongest in the swarm series thus far, struck the region near the volcano. On January 24, 2012, the volcano was rattled by a 4.7 maganitude earthquake. Clearly, Kilauea is entering a more violent phase of eruptions. Like El Hierro in the Canary Islands, like Italy’s Mt. Etna, and Icleand’s volcanic fields, the planet’s magma plumes are seen an inordinate rise in activity- a sign of more trouble to come. We began sounding the warnings back in December of 2011, when  a profuse lava flow from Kīlauea breached the West Ka‘ili‘ili ocean for the first time in 4 years. A scientist then warned the volcano was capable of very violent eruptions. Meanwhile, the earthquake swarm continues.  -The Extinction Protocol

More tiny, but harmful, frogs showing up in Hawaii
December 24, 2011  
The coqui is a tiny, coin-sized frog whose distinctive nightly mating calls are a beloved sound in Puerto Rico and other Caribbean islands. But people in Hawaii don't share the same sentiment.
The frogs have been growing in population in the state in recent years and are now starting to show up in larger numbers on Oahu — home to most of the state's population. The frogs already have a strong foothold on the less-populated Big Island, and people there complain of being kept awake at night with a thunderous roar of chirps as thousands of male coqui simultaneously summon partners — a mating chorus some say can be as loud as a jet airplane.

The frogs are also preventing the state's plant nurseries from exporting to some markets, and depressing some Big Island property values. The frogs aren't stopping tourists from visiting, but there's a fear they could if they spread further.
There have been just as many reports of coqui on Oahu in 2011 as the seven prior years combined, said Derek Arakaki, who helps hunt coqui frogs for the state Department of Agriculture. Before, Arakaki and two others on the coqui-eradication team would head out to capture the frogs on Oahu once a month or maybe twice a month. This year, there have been times when they've had to go coqui hunting twice a week.

Hawaii’s weather takes ‘unprecedented’ turn towards the bizarre
March 10, 2012 –
HAWAII – A rare tornado blew roofs off homes and left other damage in its path through the Hawaiian communities of Lanikai and Enchanted Lake on Oahu, weather officials confirmed. A National Weather Service team surveying damage and talking to witnesses determined a waterspout came ashore and was reclassified as a tornado in Lanikai about 7:30 a.m. The 20-yard-wide tornado traveled about 1.5 miles in 15 minutes to Enchanted Lake with wind speeds reaching 60 to 70 mph before dissipating, officials said. Hawaii, known for its famous sunshine, has been hit with unusually harsh weather for about a week. Kaeo DePonte stands with a trampoline lifted out of an Enchanted Lake yard by high winds on Friday morning. A 30-minute hail storm on Friday in Oahu was “unprecedented,” Tom Birchard, senior meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Honolulu, told the Associated Press. Some of the hail stones have been unusually large for the islands — the size of marbles and discs more than a half inch long, weather.com reported. The islands also saw heavy rains and thunderstorms that closed schools, flooded homes and led to sewage spills. Landslides, power outages and roads blocks by trees, boulders and mud were reported. Some vacationers in the tropical paradise had their vacations dampened. When heavy rains canceled flights out of Kauai after midnight on Tuesday, about 20 passengers were stuck at the airport. The heavy rains were expected to subside by Saturday. There were no reports of deaths or injuries due to the storm. –MSNBC

Hailstones pound Hawaii: Deadly, devastating tornadoes in the northeastern U.S. are again setting records this year, and arriving earlier than ever. Meanwhile, frigid conditions have killed hundreds across Europe, while spring-like conditions exist in vast areas of North America. Now folks in Hawaii are seeing something previously unheard of: golf ball sized hail stones on the North Shore of Oahu and in some other areas across the state. In June, 2011 snow on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea (the dormant volcano which is the highest point in the Islands) was unusual, but according to experts, not unheard of. lifeslittlemysteries.com reports that hot air met cold above Mauna Kea, one of several volcanic island mountains that make up the Hawaii island chain , causing a powerful thunderstorm that, in the presence of the cooler-than-normal air, dropped roughly 6 inches of snow on the mountaintop. “The ground coverage was significant, mostly above 12,000 feet,” Ryan Lyman, a forecast climatologist at the Mauna Kea Weather Center, told Life’s Little Mysteries. –Newser.com

Mysterious submarine plume discharge clouds waters at Hawaii
March 2, 2012
A mysterious cloudy substance is emptying into Kewalo Basin (Honolulu) from a storm drain at an alarming rate. The mystery plume started pouring into Kewalo Basin before sunrise. “It was like 5:30 in the morning and I was standing here and then all of a sudden it came all at one time,” said Robert St. Romain of Sashimi Fishing Tours. At first light he and other boat owners were stunned by the free flowing plume that turned the water white. “Just was coming out here like crazy just like you see it right now and it muddied the whole harbor in a matter of five minutes. The whole harbor was just glazed over usually you can see down,” said a boater. And it kept coming hundreds of gallons of milky brown fluid every minute. “That storm drain is capable of close to a million gallons a day of water coming through,” said Kewalo Basin Harbor Master Charles Barclay. He said he’s never seen anything like this. “If it was a sewage discharge or if it was an oil discharge we’d smell it but this is a siltation. “Obviously it’s not oil because you don’t see any slick on top,” said boater Michael de Jong. “I don’t know what else it might be. Do you have anything further?” asked Barclay. About a dozen state and city officials were on the scene. Everyone was baffled by the source. City crews visited numerous construction sites and checked for broken water mains but found no clues. “The storm water drain where it’s coming out of connects to an artesian well up by the Blaisdell Center,” said Barclay. He said this is one of 37 storm drains in Kewalo Basin. But this particular drainage was seldom source of storm runoff and the rains weren’t heavy over-night. Barclay says boat owners reported seeing dead fish in the harbor which is home to stingrays, hammerhead sharks and turtles and an occasional visit from monk seals. There’s just no question we don’t want any type of discharges that would impact the marine life,” said Barclay. The cloudy substance that blanketed the harbor made its way to the ocean where unsuspecting surfers, fishermen and divers had already started their day. –Khon 2

Kilauea Volcano triggers Kahaualea
Apr 2, 2013
 Kilauea ongoing eruptions quickened during the past 6 months.
The eruption rate increased in late November
At the same time, lava began to erupt at PuuOo.  January 2013 the crater began to overflow its eastern rim.
January 19 lava began to spill down the northeast flank of PuuOo, starting a new lava flow informally named the Kahaualea flow.

Big Island under flood advisory as rains move to west side
July 29, 2013
HILO » A flood advisory remains in effect for Hawaii island at least through 6:15 p.m. as the brunt of Tropical Storm Flossie moved past Hilo and East Hawaii and began pestering Kailua-Kona and West Hawaii with heavy rains and high winds.
The lower Puna and Kau areas appeared to be the most badly hit portions of East Hawaii. The Hawaii Police Department reported fallen trees on Highway 132, the Pahoa-Kapoho Highway in the area of Lava Tree State Park.
The highway was closed around noon but reopened about 2:30, Hawaii County Civil Defense officials said.

More than 6,000 customers of the Hawaii Electrical Light Co., mostly from Volcano to Pahoa, lost power after high winds knocked down power lines in various areas of Puna, said Kristin Okinaka, HELCO deputy corporate communications officer.

At the peak there were about 6,300 homes and businesses without power, according to Hawaii Electric Light Co. That included 2,800 customers from Volcano to Glenwood, 2,200 customers from Kalapana to Nanawale and 1,300 in Panaewa. Power was restored to some areas, and by mid-afternoon there were 5,000 customers without power, HELCO reported.

Power has since been restored to about 500 customers, but HELCO crews are still working on the rest of the outages, Okinaka said about 3:45 p.m.
Portions of Kona and Kohala began feeling the brunt of the storm about mid-afternoon.
About 2:30 p.m., Kaiminani Drive near Pia Place, in a subdivision mauka of Keahole Airport, was closed for about half an hour due to a fallen tree, Civil Defense officials said. It has since been reopened.

The county's Hele-On bus service is expected to resume full operations on Tuesday. A single run of the Kohala-Hilo route is scheduled to go at 7:30 tonight.
In the central part of the island, rain fell but many residents went about their business like it was a normal day.

A Goodfellows Brothers crew of about half a dozen workers plugged along on a state Department of Transportation road widening project on Saddle Road near the Army's Pohakuloa Training Area.
One worker, decked out in rain gear, said the crew was scheduled to work a 10-hour shift.

At the Waimea Community Center in South Kohala, about a dozen people had walked into the emergency shelter staffed by American Red Cross workers and made inquiries about everything from whether showers were available (they're not) or whether the shelter could house pets, said volunteer Balbi Brooks.

One man who had been booted from his Spencer Beach Park camp site showed up to use the restroom at the community center, and then slept in the parking lot.
A woman, who declined to give her name, was waiting for the county's Hele-On bus service to be restored, or for someone to give her a ride to Puna.
Dave Richardson, Red Cross volunteer, said "this is like any other day in Waimea except the wind is blowing west to east."

The island was getting the first punch of the weakening Flossie, which was barely holing on to its tropical storm status late this morning. By this afternoon, National Weather Service forecasters had lowered rainfall estimates for the island from up to 12 inches to 2 to 4 inches.
Earlier in the day, Hawaii island officials were preparing for the worst despite word that Tropical Storm Flossie was taking a slightly northern path as it reached Hawaiian waters around daybreak.

Hawaii island acting Civil Defense administrator Darryl Oliveira said he was told by National Weather Service officials that despite the somewhat rosier forecast, there was no change in the anticipated amount of rain or decrease in the strength of the winds headed toward the island.

"The most difficult thing is the track of this thing at this point and where it might make landfall — direct impact on the Big Island or whether it’s going to go in the (Alenuihaha) channel, or if it will just continue further north,” he said.

A steady rain fell overnight in Hilo but nothing residents from the town once dubbed the wettest in the United States were getting exciting about.
“That’s just Hilo,” Hoolulu Park Complex recreation specialist Dean Goya said of the rain as he and three American Red Cross volunteers sat in an empty Aunty Sally’s Luau Hale, the designated evacuation shelter for downtown Hilo, at 4:30 a.m.

The other eight shelters around Hawaii island: Pahoa Community Center, Laupahoehoe Charter School, Honokaa Sports Complex, Waimea Community Center, Hisaoka Gym in North Kohala, Mountain View School, Pahala Community Center, West Hawaii Civic Center.
