Voyager Lecture with Ron Smith: Kilauea

January 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$15

It’s volcano time at Kayenta!

Ron Smith Takes Us Through the May 2018 Volcanic Eruption of Kilauea

Volcanoes are among the most majestic, mysterious, powerful forces of Nature. This past spring, the great Kilauea volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii erupted, reminding us humans how utterly powerless we are in the face of such might. Lecturer Ron Smith helps us grasp the magnitude, wonder, and catastrophic impact of Kilauea’s latest event.

During the last week of April, 2018, seismographs detected a swarm of earthquakes along the southeastern end of the Big Island. On May 8, Hawaii suffered a magnitude 6.9 earthquake. The great volcano of Kilauea began to erupt. The eruptions spread to numerous fissures southeast of Kilauea and the Volcanoes National Park. The eruptions destroyed many homes and threatened entire villages. Ron Smith will document the 88 consecutive days of lava flows, crater collapses, and gas explosions. Yet, the volcanic activity was not the primary threat of the Kilauea event. Every earthquake and eruption around Kilauea threatens to create a much-feared Hilina slump landslide.  It would trigger a mega tsunami that could threaten millions who live along the coast of the Philippines, Japan, the United States, and South America.

How about some volcano pie with that volcano lecture?

6 pm: Enjoy volcano pie from Veyo Pies, other treats, and beverages at an informal social gathering. Cost is $15, including refreshments.

The Voyager Lecture Series is sponsored by Voyager Wealth Advisors, Inc., Cache Valley Bank, and State Farm Insurance Agent Sherry McGhee.
