Officials Warn Largest Hawaii Volcano Eruption Is ‘Imminent’ | NBC Nightly News


  • LOVE FROM MOTHER !!!!!!!

  • Iba Montana

  • The island is just expanding

  • I am pray for you

  • Although I don't live in Hawaii, be safe everybody and please leave Hawaii if you live around the Killowheah (sorry I don't know how to spell it) but the onlyvthibg that matters to me is that everybody leaves safely.

  • Mother nature is an unforgiving force....when she wants to make a statement she does just that!! My heart goes out to those that have lost their homes and pretty much everything. I hope the government does something to help those who have lost so much!!! #HelpHawaii #StandUpGovernment #PrayersForHawaii

  • God destroying dey for they idolary.

  • NBC: Professional fear mongers. Newertainment should be outlawed under license conditions. Bring back the free-staid-boring free press, and put these propagandists to bed.

  • If you can smell it, it's not safe to breathe.

  • Tell Bobby Brady to put the taboo idol back !

  • hey guys. If your located in Haweii my prayers go out to you and i hope everyone can stay safe and healthy..Hey just a quick word...i upload about 6-8 videos per day related to the recent volcano activity in haweii . Hit the SUBSCRIBE button for updates threwout the dont have to hit the bell if you dont want. I know how annoying it can be sometimes. God bless Haweii!!

  • cool

  • Though there may be a relation with Kilauea volcano, I would not categorize the eruption presently occurring on Hawaii as being from Kilauea. The lave is arising from fissures, and seems to be forming a new volcanic structure. If one analyzes the geographic formation of Hawaii, and the various volcanoes it appears that the volcanic activity has shifted numerous times in the course of its formation. So it is not difficult to postulate a speculative claim that we may be witnessing that process.

  • hawaiian remodeling, just a way to get rid of the haoles.

  • God loves you Hawaii are prayers are with you always

  • This is a sneak peak into ww3


  • You live on an island made of volcanoes. HOW ARE YOU SURPRISED?!?!?

  • hawaii needs help

  • fire god ill do anything to please you,this might be the end for the whole world

  • The ash rose to 30k feet. Under estimated by 10K.

  • This looks a a scene from a Hollywood blockbuster, hopefully the people can recover..."Yeshua / Jesus is the way "

  • As George Carlin once said, "They build houses on a volcano and wonder why they've got lava in the living room."

  • Liberals will blame Trump and Russia.

  • Screw your 12 second ads. Delete channel.

  • It's just earth pooping

  • Leilani Estates T-shirt, FYI : Designed in Hawaii.

  • get out of Dodge

  • ジリジリと押し寄せる溶岩、とても不気味です! 住民の方々、どうかご無事でありますようお祈り申し上げます。

  • Trump curse strikes again first Puerto Rico now Hawaii next time vote for trump lmfao

  • And this is not like wildfires....there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. All they can do is evacuate and hope and pray they dont lose their homes. Hopefully it will end soon, but who one can even predict when it will. Hang in there hawaii! Alot of prayers and thoughts are going out for you

  • this reminds me of moana.

  • ' earthquake is a so beautifully natural lava / magma / volcano on the earth globe... must be accept and love--respect the earth... dont be complaint / dont be panic

  • Que o Deus poderoso abençoe este povo que recupere tudo que perderam

  • Guys the world isn’t gonna end 🙄 Ik this volcano is different from the other ones but The the volcanos hit the ocean it’s going to turn into tock

  • NBC = #FakeNews #AssholesOnAir

  • The end is near everyone

  • old!

  • Global warming is horrific.

  • The Earth is alive. At some point it will fend off the issues man causes.

  • The real question is, what are the scientific advances that could be used to reduce the severity of the explosion

  • Que les valla bien

  • this is a real bad event for those people in Hawaii

  • Hope it will not destroy the earth.

  • time to move and get out

  • Thanks Obama

  • sub my chanel and like it ps4 give away


  • How do you propose to stop a volcano from erupting using current technology? What is a volcano? high pressure and heat from below causes pressure buildup which is strong enough to melt,bend rocks and cause fissures and explosions due to said pressure. How do we stop it? Simple. Just drill a few oil pipeline holes a few hundred meters below the surface into the main stem which feeds the volcano and release the pressure into the sea or a unused area of the island. It can't explode because the pressure has been released.Just like a boiler pressure valve.

  • Kilauea, can now play city wide floor is lava.

  • Adam and Eve were pushed out of Eden's Garden by a volcano. It says that a wind pushed them out and two swords of fire circled the garden as a an angel-message from God. The Tibet Shangrila between the mountains defines the garden, and the alternate view that Persian Gulf island Dilmun is Eden is a mistake because that is where Noah was buried in 2020bc (as Paradise) floated down the Euphrates to get there.

    • What a vivid imagination you have.

  • Yeah it's definitely the gas, not the fire and lava.

  • what do you hear if you put your ear to the ground, if anything?

  • they weren't wrong...


  • The curse of Obama's fake birth certificate haunts the island.

  • there is going to be good farming when it cools

  • the crying dummkkkunt was a good touch. What a hippielibloser that was

  • Nature's Amazing Rocks shop Mariposa CA hates this

  • 🙏❤

  • I'm speechless


  • What's up with the hair?

  • I was told a volcano is active and will blow up, and it's not done until there is no more smoke. I saw Mt. St. Helens blow up and when it was over, there was not one trace of smoke. so, what I'm saying is, it's not done yet.

  • Theres a Hunka Hunka Burnin Love!

  • Geologists: Cool and calm. NBC: OMG RUN!!!!! IT'S GOING TO BLOW!!!! TEARS DESTRUCTION DOOM!!

  • Save us Al Gore,

  • STAGED. FAKE. JadeHelmOp destroying American houses by staging forest fires, volcanos, hurricanes, whatever and however they can until every last one of us is DEAD. Investigate for yourself: Operation JadeHelm === Homeland Elimination of Local Militia

  • He's telling the world how safe it is to breathe. Lie, Vog travels to O'ahu and it affects everyone with sinus to allergies, and seriously is difficult for every lung disease. Local folks know more about this than NBC News.

  • I find watching lava flowing satisfying

  • Subscribe? No thanks Lester, I much prefer accurate and truthful news sources.

  • if you just get rid of the water you'd be fine XD

  • Quick, everyone into a manhole now!!!

  • Shouldn't have voted for Hillary. God is frowning on your state.

  • Did that lady in purple say it scared her to death wasn't she a moment ago taking a video instead of running

  • I am surprised NBC did not blame the volcano eruption on President TRUMP.

  • That flowing hot lava looks like hell's lake of fire coming out of the earth from Revelation.

  • Apocalypse 8: 8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and like a great mountain burning with fire he was hurled into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood.

  • Usa look nuclear hhhhh donal Trump

  • The media will blame Trump

  • This is cause Hawaii was won by Trump.

  • Trump becomes president and then this happens. coincidence? Yeah, probably. :P

  • Pele got sick and tired of those Puerto Rican qoeqee frogs making noise all the live long day. I was fortunate enough to visit the big island before the alien frog infestation.

  • Why so negative to something so natural. And amazing Mother Nature blows my mind


  • No be scared it's just pele, respect her because she just spreading out, the vog been at big island long time now and always went to Kilauea.

  • existence is dangling by a thread.

  • Prayers for the people in the area... All these are signs. The Lord Yeshua (Jesus) is arriving soon, friends! The Lord loves you! He is not angry at you and neither does He hate you. The Word says that God so loved the world, He gave us His Only Begotten Son Yeshua, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 paraphrased) This is why The Lord came down in the Person of Yeshua; to die, and 3 days later rise again for us all! Hallelujah! Death cannot hold Him down, and neither will He allow it to hold you down if you come to Christ today! He will forgive you, make you new, deliver you from your sins and from the judgement headed to this earth. He promises He will never drive anyone away when they come to Him! (John 6:37 paraphrased) So come to Him today! All you need is mustard seed faith and sincere words from your heart! For all those that call upon the Name of The Lord shall be saved! (Romans 10:13) Shalom, friends. :)
