Kilauea Summit

This morning there were more earthquakes at the summit, and this time they have done some damage to buildings and roads. With no lava in the throat of Halema'uma'u, rockfalls are continuing as the walls start to crumble. The earthquakes seem to be helping that along since Halema'uma'u has lost its lava support. 

For now, the road is useable. I'm hoping it will be passable all day tomorrow because I need to go to Hilo.  If not, then I'll have to drive the long way around the island across Saddle Road. We shall see how this develops.
