The lava conduit filling the crater with lava at Halemaumau is receding at a steady pace and if it continues it will reach the water table and a steam explosion will occur as in 1924, which sent multi tom boulder miles from the crater and multi pound debris five miles and blanketed the island in ash. This ash will reach the continental USA and Canada. There is a tsunami threat if any part of the slump breaks off and slides in to the Pacific. Break through fissures are continuing is in a straight line which is unusual and geologists are puzzled as Pu'u' O vent collapses and no more magma emerges from the vent. Be aware the threats are real and this explosion if it takes place will be the biggest in 100 years.
