Hawaiʻi Island residents have experienced the effects of volcanic activity - one of the island's most spectacular natural attractions - for nearly 2,000 years.
Volcano goddess Pele is woven intricately into local mythology; she is honored as the energetic pulse of the island and the creator of the newest land on the planet. Thus, we are familiar with her presence and continually monitor her activity.
We are upwind of all current and potential future activity, and so our air quality is not affected. Thanks to the trade winds, we are blessed with the cleanest air on the planet.
