Earlier this month, central California was rocked by a pair of powerful earthquakes. While there was no impact on Hawaiʻi, the islands make up the third most seismically active state in the country. And that brings up a pair of questions: can California quakes affect Hawaiʻi — and is there a way to get any early warning of something that may impact our state?

Kilauea Volcano has been erupting for three weeks now, destroying 29 homes and covering more than 150 acres of land. But lava isn’t the only force that continues to threaten island residents. HPR Reporter Ku’uwehi Hiraishi has this story.
