Kilauea Volcano Worsening Fast; Shoots Lava Fountains 1 MILE into the air!

Yesterday, the United States Geological Service (USGS) raised the alert level for the Kilauea volcano eruption from Orange to Red. Shortly thereafter, Hawaiians were stunned as Lava fountains shot 1 MILE into the air ! ! ! 

Things are dramatically worsening with the ongoing eruption of Mount Kilauea in Hawaii.  While there are other volcanoes on the big island, adding to the worry now are new earthquakes taking place at . . . . Mouna Kea.   That volcano is on the same big island of Hawaii, but in the northeast of the island.

Asteroid the size of a city block to give Earth a close shave Tuesday

A fast-moving asteroid the size of a city block will give Earth a close shave on Tuesday, zooming safely past at 6:05 p.m. EDT at a distance of about 126,000 miles. That's about half the distance from the Earth to the moon and the closest approach the asteroid will have made in nearly 300 years, EarthSky.org reported.

Small Earthquake Shakes San Francisco

A small, but noticeable earthquake of Magnitude 3.6 struck San Francisco, CA minutes ago, at 10:18 PM eastern US time (7:18 PM local time) at a very shallow depth of only 8km.  The quake is small compared to others that take place in California, but it struck very near the densely populated city, and is taking place while other severe earthquake and volcano activity is also happening in Hawaii.   

Geologists and others are wondering if the shaking and eruptions in Hawaii are having an effect on the unstable tectonics of the US west coast; in this case, the Hayward Fault in California?
