For over a week, the Kilauea Volcano has been erupting on the big island of Hawaii but on Thursday morning a SECOND volcano - Mauna Loa - began having small earthquakes around Magnitude 2.2, then another quake TEN hours later at Magnitude 2.9
THERMAL IMAGING OF MAUNA LOA SHOWS UNDERGROUND "HOT SPOTS" THAT WERE NOT PREVIOUSLY DETECTABLE! Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on that island. If it erupts, the entire island may have to evacuate.
The map below comes from the The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), founded in 1975, following a recommendation from the European Seismological Commission (ESC). The ESC is a regional commission of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI), itself a specialized association of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG).
For some reason, this earthquake is **NOT** being reported on the US Geological Survey web site. It's certainly NOT because the USGS didn't register the quake.
Here is a Thermal image of Mauna Loa showing new "HOT SPOTS" beneath its surface which were NOT previosuly detected. These HOT SPOTS are magma that is on-the-move, despite this volcano being quiet for decades! Looks like things are coming back to life inside it:
We already know that the USGS is suppressing public information about the Hilina Slump near Kilauea. That 10 mile by 15 mile section of land on the seaward side of Kilauea, is now unstable and detaching from Kilauea. A story done by Hal Turner Radio Show earlier includes comments from world Geologists warning that if the Hilina Slump detaches and falls into the Pacific Ocean, a Tsunami would be immediately generated wiping out most coast cities in the Hawaiian islands, and then four to five hours later, slamming into San Diego and Los Angeles with 30 meter tall waves. 30 meters means about 99 FEET tall. That earlier report is HERE.
Is it possible that information about Mauna Loa is also being kept quiet? Perhaps. Hawaii thrives from TOURISM. If Tourists start finding out the big island is possibly nearing some kind of volcanic disaster, they'll change their travel plans to somewhere else. It would wreck Hawaii's economy. So there is certainly a big motivation to keep things quiet.
UPDATE 2:08 PM EDT --
A THIRD earthquake has just struck Mauna Loa volcano is Hawaii; a small Magnitude 1.9
This is the third earthquake at the volcano today according to seismic monitors.
