Maui is still safe from the volcano on the Big Island

The volcanic activity on the Big Island right now is very dramatic and it makes for some compelling news coverage.  It's a real disaster for those who are living near the flows, or downwind of the fumes.  Many families are displaced and will never be able to return.  My heart goes out to them.  The eruption is still evolving and it seems to get worse every day.

Keep up with the lava flows on Hawaii News Now - some incredible footage!

But on Maui we don't have any direct effects since the lava is very far away.  We can't see the red hot flows, and for the most part the smoke and ash blows away in the opposite direction.  It's pretty much "business as usual" over on the Valley Isle (Maui) with the trade winds blowing in clean air from the north east, and visitors arriving every day to enjoy all the beauty that Maui has to offer.

Concerned friends and family keep asking about whether or not we're OK on Maui and, YES we're OK - thanks for asking!  In the picture below you can see the sandy beach along the North Kihei shoreline.  In the background is a small old cinder cone that hasn't erupted in hundreds of years.  When the bad air does blow over to Maui, this part of the island will know it first.

Thank you for the update, and we are happy that Maui is not affected.  Mother Nature has been on a rampage this past year and into the new year.  I hope this is over soon.  A

Georgie, yes many of us are Geographically Challenged and it is good that you clarified it for us and it is even better you are not in harms way.... reminds me of our friends and relatives  from the East Coast when they hear stuff in California, they always ask...I guess it is better to be concerned than not to care, Endre

Good morning Georgie - glad to know that you are safe.  I am certainly one of those who is geograpically challenged.

Thanks for the comments.  Here we are, many weeks later and the volcanic activity continues at a relentless pace, with hundreds of homes lost and buried under the lava.  Such a big change for so many people who now find themselves homeless.  When will it end?

Georgie, glad Maui is ok and not so close to the activity. My heart hurts for those affected. Hope they can start over soon, maybe in your area.
