You’ve scheduled a Hawaiian vacation and are concerned about dangers you may face. First, face the facts. The Big Island is larger than all the other islands of the state combined.

Actually, the potential eruptions and quake dangers of the Kīlauea Volcano there are only close to communities near the mountain on that island. The resorts and beaches along the Kona and Kohala coasts are 100 or more miles from the affected areas.

The other Hawaiian islands, including Oahu and its capital city of Honolulu, have not been nor are expected to be affected by more volcanic eruptions or damages. If still worried, keep in daily touch with your travel agency and hotels where you have reservations.
