Quick, NBC, Cancel "Hawaii" Before It's Too Late!

The Honolulu Star-Bulletin reports that the Big Island's Mauna Loa volcano may be on the verge of another eruption:

"Unprecedented" activity deep under Mauna Loa this summer could be another sign that the world's largest volcano is headed toward an eruption, a scientist says.

More than 350 earthquakes have been recorded since July.

Such frequent, small earthquakes have never before been measured beneath Mauna Loa's summit caldera. Data on Mauna Loa's seismic activity started to be collected in the 1930s, and Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientist-in-charge Donald Swanson said even the instruments of that era would have detected the quakes.

Kathy emails: I think the Volcano Gods are angry with NBC for "Hawaii."
