What more could one ask for-a major hurricane AND a violent volcano.
Wish I was there....
The current track takes it south of the islands, expected to pass by midweek after maybe weakening to a tropical storm. Might get some rain out of it though.
Everything happens for a reason. But sometimes the reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

Hurricane well south, and now the volcano is showing signs of punking out. Today USGS report shows diminished lava from the active fissure and the cyclical collapse/earthquake/build seismic activity has stalled. There was a slight increase in seismic active after the latest collapse event 3 days ago but that tapered off.

Boring here now without natural disasters dominating the local news. We have to settle for un-natural disasters like primary election season.
