WASHINGTON — South Dakota has become what South Carolina once was — stubborn, pugnacious and wrong.In 1860, South Carolina became the first state to vote to secede.Dozens of people packed the Ocean View Community Center in Ka‘u for Trusdell’s presentation titled “Mauna Loa: How Well Do You Know the Volcano in Your Backyard?
A background essay and discussion questions are included.
Mauna Loa last erupted in 1984 and Hualalai in 1800-01 with a failed eruption, which included earthquakes, flames and gas but no lava, in 1929. Mauna Loa is the world’s largest active volcano, said Trusdell, noting it extends 13,697 feet above sea level and about 3,100 feet below sea level. Mauna Loa covers more than 50 percent of Hawaii Island, extending into Hilo, most of the southern portion of the island and toward Kiholo Bay in North Kona. Rainier, the picturesque volcano in Washington state.
“Mauna Loa is so huge that it actually causes the Pacific plate it is residing on to sag under the weight of the volcano,” said Trusdell, noting that like Kilauea, Mauna Loa remains in the shield stage, featuring a caldera at the summit some 3.7-by-1.9 miles — much larger than Kilauea’s 1.2-by-1.9 miles.
Nevertheless, while Mauna Loa may not appear as though it’s ready to erupt today, Trusdell stressed the importance of being prepared because time can be limited depending on where you live.
According to data presented by Trusdell, scientists estimate, depending on the location of the actual eruption on Mauna Loa, it would take the lava about 29 hours to reach the shoreline below the Hawaiian Ocean View Estates subdivision of Ka‘u, as little as three hours to reach the South Kona shoreline, eight days to reach Kiholo Bay and some 280 days to reach Hilo Bay.
