btw, the authors of that initial paper were heavily criticised by subsequent studies, which range from virtually no risk, to tiny tsunamis through to 5 to 10 m waves, presuming it even happened in our life time which is extremely unlikely. 
As I understand it, they used a linear model where the energy doesn't dissipate with distance instead of a point source model, where the waves will decrease rapidly over distance.

This island might be a better historical comparison.

thanks! i'm aware
i have a tsunami plan (does that make me some sort of freak?)
it's basically my hurricane plan with a twist
a super serious concreto parking garage by my house
that multi-story garage is behind a massive concrete hotel
at first warning i'll probably have at least six hours
i load a couple of cases of water, a small glut of  sardines, dogfood, a suitcase and a bugout bag (we won't speak about the contents) and about forty cans of beanie weenies

then i drive 150 yards into the garage to an upper story
i scurry back to my place, gather any extras, doom scroll for as for a bit, grab my other half, my dog, my spear gun and hike 150 yards back to my spot
some variables?
i'm six miles from the beach
plus we have some barrier islands about thirty miles off shore
and the intercoastal waterway to absorb some of that energy

i'm open for some suggestions/improvements





sounds good to me, given that the tsunami might only be 8" tall. But yeah, in the unlikely event of ...  maybe add an inflatable boat to your stash. I always thought a strong Zorb would be ideal.

this intrusion is worth keeping an eye on. 

Bear in mind it is a subject that automatically triggers massive media hype.
That said, it is still a very steep and large volcanic edifice that has developed a large crack down the middle.

When you are talking about 1200 C lava, the difference of a few tens of degrees in air temperature isn't that significant. Things stop glowing below ~525 C. I'm amazed at how far the glowing flows go in the narrow channels. 

A couple of geologist friends of mine had contacts in Hawaii and got to go out and sample one of the flows. I'm terminally envious.

Apparently the path to the old viewing point is now cut off by a flow, so you can't get as close to the vents. Speculation is that the lava could reach the coastal road in a couple of months, cutting one of the main routes around the country.
 
That is very likely. There is currently no sign of it stopping. It's very primitive magma coming directly from the mantle (/edit), powered by decompression melting so this could run for months, or even years.
