Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio notes:

During the current Kilauea volcanic eruption and the ongoing lava emergency for Lower Puna, Hawaii Island radio amateurs should monitor the VOAD repeater atop Mauna Kea (146.70 MHz, 100 Hz tone) and the 40 meter interiland net frequency of 7.088 MHz (LSB).  These frequencies can be used to send emergency traffic if the need arises.

For Hawaii Island radio amateurs living in Lower Puna, please have your “go-kit” and emergency supplies preloaded in your vehicle in case Hawaii County Civil Defense officials order you to evacuate.  Access routes will be cut off once lava crosses more of Highway 132 and nudges Highway 130.  The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency issues daily eruption and lava flow updates over Hawaii Island radio stations and through the social media.

I have current eruption information on my Hawaii Island news site:
