    While the present eruptions are negatively affecting a lot of people, there is a result that would be the worst disaster in recorded history. Not likely at this time, but it will eventually happen.

    Well, if I were interested in going to Hawaii, yes, I would be. Same as visiting Yellowstone. Things will happen in both places that will be catastrophic, but probably not in a time frame that would affect me or my great-great-great-grandchildren.

    I wonder how far inland a 100 foot wave would travel inland? Say coastal California? Wooooo doggie!

    It's gambling really. Do you want to die the day it happens or a month later?

    Look up solitons, very interesting study on the type of wave that this would put in the rivers on the West Coast.

    If you are talking about the mega-tsunami, then if you survive the first day, you are ok. Yellowstone? Ouch!

    Dang.... I thought I read recently that that was a possibility.... part of that whole island just falling into the sea and causing a huge wave. Wouldn't that proceed hundreds of miles inland?

    I'm astonished that there aren't at least a couple hundred protesters marching around the volcano to stop the environmental impact and the spewing of toxic gasses into the atmosphere.
