Today we sat down to talk about the triple whammy hitting Hawaii Island that consists of lava spewing from below, several earthquakes and noxious fumes in the air. This is the strongest series of events to hit Hawaii in more than forty years. We sat down with seismologist Lucy Jones, U.S. Geological Survey research geophysicist Weston Thelen, and American Red Cross Volunteer Marilani Marcie to get an understanding of what is going on below ground and above ground.

Guests:

Lucy Jones, CalTech Seismology Lab of CalTech

Weston Thelen, U.S. Geological Survey

Marilani Marcie, American Red Cross Volunteer in Pahoa

Intro music: Lava by The B-52’s
