“Mauna Loa: How well do you know the volcano in your backyard?” That’s the topic of an upcoming Volcano Awareness Month talk in Ocean View.
USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist Frank Trusdell will talk 6:30 p.m. Wednesday about the eruptive history and current status of Mauna Loa volcano. The program will be hosted at the Ocean View Community Center, 92-8924 Leilani Circle in Hawaiian Ocean View Estates, and is free and open to the public.
This program is one of many offered during Hawaii Island’s fifth-annual Volcano Awareness Month. Details of the month’s activities around the Big Island are posted on the HVO website at hvo.wr.usgs.gov.
