The World's Largest Active Volcano Erupted In Hawaii Last Night And Residents Are Being Told To Get Ready To Evacuate "Just In Case"

Source - The world’s largest active volcano, Hawaii’s Mauna Loa, has erupted for the first time in almost four decades, authorities said Monday. Mauna Loa erupted at 11:30 p.m. local time Sunday, in what was its first eruption since 1984, according to the Hawaii Volcano Observatory.

“At this time, lava flows are contained within the summit area and are not threatening downslope communities,” the USGS said.

“Winds may carry volcanic gas and possibly fine ash and Pele’s hair downwind.” The USGS warned that the early stages of the eruption could be “very dynamic and the location and advance of lava flows can change rapidly.”

“If the eruption remains in Moku‘āweoweo, lava flows will most likely be confined within the caldera walls,” the statement said. However, if the eruption spreads outside the walls of Mauna Loa’s summit caldera, “lava flows may move rapidly downslope.”

Residents at risk from Mauna Loa were warned to review preparedness guides and refer to Hawai’i County Civil Defense information for any further guidance.

Word to the wise: If you're there, leave. Leave and never look back. I've heard more sure forecasting from Kevin Lemanowicz on a wet spring day than whatever the hell that was. I mean they started by saying the lava flows "aren't a threat" and in the same breath said they don't know what's going to happen. The eruption could be "very dynamic and the location and advance of lava flows can change rapidly.”  GTFOutta here. If I'm on that Island I'm hitting the road, jack. 

Here's a few videos from the initial eruption last night...

Kinda boring but that's a good thing. We'd rather that than an entire Island swallowed whole. And for those of you who are wondering, this is taking place on "the big island" which is one of the least populated. Still very scary though. That's it for this one.
