Comment:

Many of our Hawaii Island radio amateurs live in areas that could be impacted by the Kilauea Volcanic eruption and the ongoing lava flows impacting the lower Puna District.  Radio amateurs living in the Leilani Estates subdivision and the Lanipuna Gardens subdivision should evacuate now before Highways 130 and 132 are made impassable by lava.

Here’s the current East Rift Zone Eruption Update from the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency.  Please note that mandatory evacuations are now in effect for some areas:

A message from COUNTY OF HAWAII

This is a Civil Defense Message for Monday, May 28 at 6:00 in the evening.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that a fast moving pahoehoe flow from Fissure 8 is advancing on Nohea and Kupono Streets north of Leilani Street. There are reports of lava fountains on Moku Street.  Anyone in the area, from Pomaikai east, needs to leave now.

Due to the volcanic activity, the following policies are in effect:

·         Residents close to the active eruption need to leave the area to avoid being isolated by the flow.

·         Authorities are going door to door on the affected streets.

  • Stay alert for warnings from Civil Defense Officials
  • The Pahoa Community Center, Keaau Community Center, and Sure Foundation Church are open.  The shelters are pet friendly.

We are on watch 24-hours a day for your safety.

This is your Hawai’i County Civil Defense Agency.

This e-mail has been sent to you by the COUNTY OF HAWAII. To maximize their communication with you, you may be receiving this e-mail in addition to a phone call with the same message. If you no longer wish to receive email notifications from COUNTY OF HAWAII, please click here to unsubscribe.


Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio notes:

During the current eruption and lava flow emergency, please monitor the VOAD repeater atop Mauna Kea (146.70 MHz, 100 Hz tone) and the 40 meter interisland net frequency of 7.088 MHz (LSB).  These frequencies can be used to send emergency traffic if the need arises.

For our radio amateur friends in Lower Puna–please prepare a “go-kit” and a survival package for your family in case you are asked to evacuate your home.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency issues eruption and lava flow updates throughout the day on Hawaii Island radio stations and through the social media.

You can find updated Civil Defense information on my news website:  https://hawaiinewsdigest.net.

Be safe and stay alive.
