Hawaii Vacation News Roundup for August 21st

  • What’s going on under Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island?  There were two earthquakes last week, the first at a magnitude of 5.4 and the other at 4.4.  In addition, a 44-acre lava bench fell into the ocean.  Scientist are unsure if one of the earthquakes or Hurricane Flossie could have caused the collapse.  Meanwhile, lava continues to flow from the July 21st fissure eruption.  
  • The Hawaii Superferry is set to launch on August 28th, but there are two legal hurdles in the way.  The opposition to the ferry raise concerns about the environmental and traffic impacts.  One legal challenge goes before a judge tomorrow and the other on Thursday.
