New year means Volcano Awareness Month

January is Volcano Awareness Month. That might seem odd, given that Hawaii Island residents — especially those in the District of Puna — have been acutely aware of Kilauea Volcano for at least the past four months, during which an active lava flow crossed a road, burned a farm shed and unoccupied house, inundated a cemetery, damaged orchards and buried sections of private property. Today, the lava flow continues to threaten the community of Pahoa.
