HVNP to reopen in phases, park spokeswoman says

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park officials expect visitors to be amazed by the changes to Kilauea’s caldera, where dozens of collapse events have quadrupled the size of Halema‘uma‘u crater and created a chasm 1,500 feet deep.

Eruption has little effect on turnout

Despite displacement of residents because of the Kilauea eruption, and longer wait times on election day, voter turnout in lower Puna saw little change during Saturday’s primary.
