Okay, all you Big Island residents, where is the Hilo Ridge? It stands nearly 3,000 m (10,000 ft) above its surroundings, is more than 50 km (30 mi) long, and is one of the most prominent landmarks in the State. Its crest is only 30 km (20 mi) from Hilo--but northeast of town.

Last week at the annual fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union, a special informational session was held to discuss the recent increased earthquake and ground deformation activity in the Long Valley Calderaarea. Long Valley Caldera is part of a volcanic complex located in eastern California at the northern head of the Owens valley.

During the past two weeks, many people have heard roaring noises from the area of Pu`u `O`o, the prominently fuming cinder-and-spatter cone 12 km south of Glenwood. Some of our best reports of this activity come from residents of both upper and lower Puna, as well as from visitors in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Kilauea Volcano's east rift zone eruption continues: most lava travels through tubes from the vent area to the coast

November 27, 1997

November has been a busy month historically for eruptions as well as earthquakes. Six historical eruptions have started in November on Kīlauea (1930, 1959, 1967, 1973, 1975, 1979) and four on Mauna Loa (1880, 1892, 1914, and 1935).

November is a month that always makes HVO seismologist Jennifer Nakata a little nervous. Nakata says her discomfort surfaces about this time each year as she recalls two of the Big Island's most damaging earthquakes, the magnitude-7.2 Kalapana quake that struck on November 29, 1975 and the magnitude 6.6 Ka`oiki quake that shook the island on November 16, 1983.
