Build a small shrine on each end.
It's a miracle.

Where did you get this information from?

Wahine




It keeps changing. I think they change every few hours but that was going on.





I asked Eileen about this one way rumor. Following is her reply:

Haven't heard that rumor which doesn't make sense. The concern here is that Hwy 132 becomes compromised, so we will still have the beach road. The advance down the east rift has taken a more southerly direction away from 132, but this event appears far from over.

It took the US Army 7 months to make a 1,700-mile road from the mainland to Alaska in 1942. Granted it wasn't originally paved, but they didn't have modern road equipment either.

Now you couldn't get a committee together to consider an environmental impact study in 7 months.

1969: "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."
2018: "Kalapana? Sorry you can't get there on this road. Cracks."

Talked to county worker at Pakaka Road where they are now and still working. They are on schedule to finish tomorrow. The paving is 12' wide. It's the county doing the work but also using trucking contractors for the fast volume of asphalt.

"1969: "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."

One of my favorite articles, though like all media not entirely accurate, is how the Apollo 11 astronauts had to "go through customs in Hawaii" after returning from the moon.

They were, after all, returning to this country, and subject to our immigration laws:

(notice their incoming flight #: Apollo 11)

It isn't a rumor because people in Kapoho had to do that one day when the cracks formed on 132 near Noni Farms rd.It was one way down 132 and one way back on beach road.I didn't go through it but my wife and several neighbors did.

Obie,

Just because folks in Kapoho had to travel that way for one day doesn't mean that that is the way it is from now on. No one in Waa Waa was notified of any sort of one way designation for Government Beach Rd.

If it comes down to it, then yeah, human lives are greater than trees. If they are in the way for critical public access, then the trees will take the hit. It's not like they are 'ohi'a lehua, either, so it's not a big loss.

Aloha :)
