The news just said they aren't expecting a tsunami. Islanders are saying there have been over a hundred small quakes. Hope everyone stays safe. The volcano is still erupting.

Pretty sizeable tremors related to the magma movement. Quite an amount of magma movin' on up.

News is saying the 6.9 earthquake is the largest to hit Hawaii since 1975. The fissures opening up in housing developments are miles from the volcano itself, even outside the boundaries of Volcanoes National Park. Looks like Mt Kilauea is growing. Really hoping everyone remains safe. A lot of toxic sulfuric gases being released and authorities are warning people they are an immediate threat to life. National Guard is on duty to watch in case more fissures open elsewhere. Kilauea continues to erupt which it's been doing for many years.

USGS is now reporting over 250 earthquakes, 50 on Wednesday alone.

Don't know why first link is blocked. This one is very informative as to what's happening there. Volcanoes National Park has been closed.

The destruction is still increasing. News tonight said earthquakes now total 1,000. Of course, Hawaii is under a state of emergency.

USGS has now issued a warning that the eruption of Mt Kilauea may become explosive soon. More fissures have opened forcing more evacuations and property damage.

So far.  Trying to call in some old favors to have transport to San Diego just in case. Then bring them into Dix. If I asked the SAS, troopers would be hand delivering them to me......but Americans will be Americans......,

More fissures have continued to open. Trump has declared Hawaii as a disaster area with the National Guard ready to begin evacuations immediately should they need to.

Even more fissures opening and evacuations have been initiated. I feel so bad for the people of Hawaii. They can only wait and see if and when the explosive eruption happens. Some tourist lodgings have been asked to stop operations.

The Hawaiian islands were created by volcanic eruptions....and the Earth is creating yet again. Move everyone, that's all that can be done.

Fissures continue to open up. They say the lava is slow moving, but I worry about all the noxious gas that is being released. A major eruption could occur at any moment. Some estimates are within the next 24-48 hours. A major reshaping is taking place, but so far, it isn't expected to affect Hilo.

They really need to step up the evacuations, I feel a lot of anxiety over this and worry it will be major, really major. If the people are safe, though, it becomes just a thing.

Be safe Hawaii. :( Pele gonna go off soon :(

People need to leave ASAP...always take 'Mother Nature' very seriously. Keep in mind, people don't rule, the Earth rules.

and then

It seems they think that the magma lake may fall below the groundwater level and that could lead to a steam explosion/eruption.  I hope they can evac everyone before it happens.  What a mess.

The warnings are out to stay vigilant and aware and humble in the face of nature. It can happen quickly. CNN is reporting the last time an eruption of this potential occurred was in 1924.

Bro I have had a migraine for days over this until today when I acknowledged it and released it or faced dying of agony. I see her crying and some loss but alive when I look, pray this is true and nothing intervenes. All I can do, brother. Much love.
