Hawaii asteroid discovery flies close to Earth

Hawaii asteroid discovery flies close to Earth | PRG HAWAII NEWS WITH RUSS ROBERTS | Scoop.it
An asteroid discovered by Hawaii scientists got pretty close to earth Wednesday.
Russell Roberts's insight:

A relatively close call by astronomical standards.  An asteroid measuring approximately 100 feet wide passed between the Earth and Moon on Wednesday at a distance of about 200,000 miles.  The space rock was discovered last week by the PAN-STARRS telescope atop Maui's Mt. Haleakala.  Scientists say asteroids of this size pass close to Earth about twice a year.  Aloha, Russ.

Opening of Hilo High School Gym delayed.

Malfunctioning equipment causes delayed opening.

Russell Roberts's insight:

Source:  Hawaii Tribune-Herald.

Reporter: Colin M. Stewart.

 

The opening of the new Hilo High School Gym has been delayed.  In an email sent to the "Hawaii Tribune-Herald," on Monday, Principal Robert Dircks said the opening of the new gym was delayed because of "a scheduling conflict between contractors" regarding the paving of the gym's driveway fronting Waianuenue Avenue.  F & H Construction and Yamada and Sons, Inc. were delayed in finishing the driveway because of malfunctioning equipment.  That work was completed last Friday. Dircks says the dedication of the gym will "be no later than Nov. 26."  Aloha, Russ.

Hawaiian Volcano Sends Lava Oozing Toward Town, With No Telling When It Will End

Hawaiian Volcano Sends Lava Oozing Toward Town, With No Telling When It Will End | PRG HAWAII NEWS WITH RUSS ROBERTS | Scoop.it
Residents await a slow-moving threat from the Kilauea volcano.
Russell Roberts's insight:

A sobering report from the "National Geographic Magazine" about the lava flow threatening Pahoa Town.  In short, it's coming and there's not much you can do to stop it.  Kevin Dayton, the executive assistant to Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi, told reporters that diversion isn't an option because "it creates at least as many problems as it solves...there haven't been any examples of successful diversions, and there are cultural concerns as well." No evacuations have been ordered for the Kaohe Homestead subdivision, which was "grazed" by lava on Monday.  The unused lots in that subdivision will serve as a temporary buffer zone as the lava spreads out toward the northeast. The next target is Pahoa Town, lying some 3 miles (4.8 km) from the leading edge of the lava flow.  Bulldozers working on a Pahoa park project have been diverted to clear two smaller roads that could be used to evacuate residents from the slowly moving lava.  These roads would have to be supplemented by the reopening of the now-closed Chain of Craters Road.  Portions of that road were closed by the 1990 lava flow which covered portions of Kalapana.  Aloha, Russ.

Russell Roberts's insight:

I usually cringe when mainland U.S. newspapers recommend scenic spots to visit in Hawaii.  The reports tend to overstate what is basically a simple, enjoyable natural setting.  But, this time, I'll have to back off a bit.  "The Los Angeles Register" has done an excellent job of portraying the wonders and beauty to be found at the mid-level  facility of Mauna Kea.  A trip to the Mauna Kea Visitor Information Center is well worth the effort.  The rangers and staff at the facility are available daily, 9 a.m. to  10 p.m., for tours and observations with telescopes set up on the Center's lanai (patio).  On a clear night, the view is literally "out of this world."  Be sure to bring a jacket or sweater with you, as it tends to be cool at the 9,200-foot elevation. For details, call 808-935-6268. Aloha, Russ.

Sand Island named site for temporary homeless settlement.

Area was once used as an internment camp during World War II.

Russell Roberts's insight:

Source:  Associated Press (Honolulu).

 

A Hawaii board has approved the lease for a temporary encampment for homeless people in Honolulu.  The lease for the voluntary encampment on Sand Island was approved Friday. Honolulu officials say the  camp should be operational in two to three months.  They envision a triage center where homeless families can access services.  Critics say homeless people are being shooed out of sight to go to a dry, isolated area away from their communities.  Parts of Sand Island have been used as a dump and as an internment camp for Japanese Americans during World War II.  The island is now mostly industrial and has a wastewater treatment plant and some parks. Some area residents and companies are concerned about security, but officials say the camp will have two guards onsite around the clock.  Aloha, Russ.

Hawaii road crews preparing for approach of lava

Hawaii road crews preparing for approach of lava | PRG HAWAII NEWS WITH RUSS ROBERTS | Scoop.it
PUNA, Hawaii (AP) — Road crews on Hawaii's Big Island have begun clearing access roads in case a lava flow from a nearby volcano cuts a main highway.
Russell Roberts's insight:

According to "Hawaii Tribune-Herald" reporter Colin M. Stewart, the lava flow threatening Pahoa Town and nearby subdivisions has shifted to a more northerly direction over the weekend and showed signs of slowing down between Friday and Sunday.  The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the flow had traveled about 270 meters/300 yards since Friday, suggesting that the flow advance rate may have slowed over the past several days.  As Lower Puna residents prepared for a possible lava incursion within the next two weeks, "a number of large bulldozers busily cleared Railroad Avenue between Hawaiian Paradise Park and Hawaiian Beaches.  County workers have been readying since Thursday the partially unpaved roadway as an alternative exit for residents should the lava encroach upon Highway 130."  Aloha, Russ.

Thanks to news blogger Damon Tucker for this update.  Access to the Wao Kele o Puna Forest Reserve has been suspended "because of hazards associated with the June 27 lava flow" from the Pu'u O'o vent.  If the lava flow continues on its current path, it could cross Highway 130 in about two weeks.  Highway 130 is the main road connecting Hilo to Lower Puna.  Hawaii County personnel are improving the seldom used Beach Road and Railroad Avenue as possible evacuation routes.  Hawaii County Civil Defense is providing daily updates on local radio stations and through the "Hawaii Tribune-Herald" newspaper.

Elections officials prepare for lava.

Three Puna District Precincts could be affected by advancing lava flow.

Russell Roberts's insight:

Source:  Hawaii Tribune-Herald.

Reporter:  Tom Callis.

 

According to reporter Tom Callis, Hawaii County and state elections workers are preparing for the possibility that voting in the general election could be disrupted again in lower Puna as a slow moving lava flow advances toward Pahoa Town.  Elections officials have identified 7,542 voters in three precincts from Ainaloa to Kalapana, who could have a difficult time voting on 04 November 2014. These are the same voters that were prevented from voting in the 09 August primary election because of  damage from Tropical Storm Iselle.  Although the situation is similar, election officials say some alternate solutions to the voting problem can be developed because there is "more lead time."  State Elections Chief Scott Nago believes polling places could be consolidated if one or more become unavailable.  Hawaii County Clerk Stewart Maeda said the county is looking at setting up an early walk-in voting site for the precincts outside of "harm's way," possibly in Nanawale Estates.  The state and county are asking voters to vote absentee, especially if they have to relocate. Walk-in voting begins 21 October 2014.  One fact is clear:  If the lava flow continues on its present course and speed, Pahoa Town will be cut off from Hilo and getting supplies and commuting to work will be more difficult.  Prepare now--it's not a matter of if, but when the lava will isolate Lower Puna.  Aloha, Russ.

Russell Roberts's insight:

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell has signed 3 bills into law which make it illegal for residents to urinate/defecate on public property and which make it illegal to sit or line on Waikiki sidewalks. Caldwell says the new laws are part of a"compassionate disruption" policy that will help put the homeless into shelters where they can get basic health and personal care.  The homeless would then be eligible for various housing programs run by the city. The ACLU opposes the new laws because it believes the measures violate the 8th amendment, guaranteeing freedom from cruel and unusual punishment.  Aloha, Russ.

Waimea Middle School wants buses.

Bus purchase would equal additional money for classrooms.

Russell Roberts's insight:

Source:  Stephens Media Hawaii.

Reporter: Erin Miller.

 

Waimea Middle School officials tell reporter Erin Miller that the school could save around $60,000 a year if it bought two school buses, rather than contract out for transportation services through the state Department of Education.  Following a Friday night fundraiser, Principal Matt Horne said contributions have been coming in towards the school's $120,000 goal, "because every penny the school saves on transportation means more money for the conversion charter school's classrooms." Horne is siding with an independent evaluation team's report that says "it's in the classrooms...where "the most changes can be made to improve student achievement."  Aloha, Russ.

Earthquakes signal Mauna Loa may be waking up

University of Hawaii volcanologist Michael Garcia says the earthquakes suggest that Mauna Loa is waking up but that it could be months before it does anything.
Russell Roberts's insight:

According to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, Mauna Loa, the largest active volcano on the planet, is rumbling a bit more these days and showing signs of "awakening" for over a year.  HVO seismologist Wes Thelen tells "Hawaii Tribune-Herald" reporter that an eruption isn't imminent, and no warnings have been issued, but  the "mountain is going through the same motions that it did before its 1984 and 1975 eruptions." Thelen adds that "All the signs are there that tell us that magma is moving into the shallow system."  The volcano could be more destructive than Kilauea, and could "threaten a much larger area."  In the past 3,000 years, Mauna Loa has erupted on average every five to six years.  Thelen believes "that may just mean we are due."  Aloha, Russ.
