It is all about timing, Gawd.

I have no doubt that the people concerned knew it would happen eventually. But they worked on the idea that it would not happen in their time. As I said, when you throw the dice, it sometimes turns bad. That does not mean that the dice throwers are crazy. You did it yourself, living next to an active volcano. You got away with it. I did it, living on an active geothermal field (which was close to a volcano that killed many people in the 19th century) and I got away with it. Mostly, when people make these choices, they get away with it. Just now and again, though .......

Most importantly, living on an active volcano makes you feel cool....

fox-----Lava spatter from fissure caused by Kilauea volcano shatters leg of man in first known injury-----"It hit him on the shin, and shattered everything from there down on his leg," Snyder said, adding that the lava spatter could weigh “as much as a refrigerator.”


“And even small pieces of spatter can kill,” she said.

Epic videos online now. Anybody know the proper spelling for "Lahae effect"?
NOT "Lahar", btw.

ETA "laes" effect.

Lahar - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lahar

A lahar is a violent type of mudflow or debris flow composed of a slurry of pyroclastic material, rocky debris and water. The material flows down from a volcano, typically along a river valley. ... In particular, although lahars are typically associated with the effects of volcanic activity, lahars can occur even without any current ..

But you say not that. So....what effect are you wondering about? ie: describe its action/effect?

the sulfur fumes have killed the vegetation------Volcano Cautions and Warnings - InstantHawaii



www.instanthawaii.com/cgi-bin/hawaii?Volcano.warn



While the fumes from the lava are dangerous if too much is inhaled, it is especially dangerous at the ocean where the combination of water and lava produce corrosive and dangerous gasses including sulfuric acid. Avoid breathing the vapors and do not be in this area if you have any breathing problems.
