We are losing ground ... litterally!

Hawaii Volcanoes National ParkA huge 44 acre section of coastline inside of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park fell into the ocean this last week. According to this AP report in the Washington Post, the collapse took more than 4 1/2 hours to complete. Geologists have had an idea that this would happen since June. Jim Gale, a park spokesman quoted in the article says: ""The cliff just caved away like a glacier. It just sheared off that old wall. There's this gigantic steam plume and you see the red just falling down ... an incredible fire hose display." That would have been an incredible sight to see!
