The Hilina slide on the southern side of Kilauea is an excellent example of a slump. The large "palis" or cliffs on the south side of Kilauea are the tops of the extensive fault system at the head of the Hilina slide. The faults downdrop blocks towards the coast over 2000 feet in places. The downdropped coastal side of the fault blocks are probably tilted back towards the rift zone, but have been filled in by numerous lava flows making them slope very gently (about 1 degree) towards the ocean.During the 1990's, Kilauea was moving an average of about 10 cm a year seaward. This is a lot of movement for such a large object. This is a lot of ground to break and as you can imagine it results in some pretty large earthquakes. The last time that this appears to have happened was in 1868 and the result was the M8 Kau Earthquake.Second, the volcano can get stuck and suddenly release, causing a massive earthquake and landslide. The Hilina Slump is said to be "the most rapidly moving tract of ground on Earth for its size." The Hilina Slump can move much faster. At 4:48 AM, November 29, 1975, a 37-mile-wide section suddenly dropped 11½ feet and slid seaward 26 feet. The result was a magnitude-7.2 quake and a 48-foot-high tsunami around Hawaii. This was a minor movement of the slump. If the entire 4,760-cubic-mile block broke off, (as some geologists who spoke with me today believe may take place) it would probably create a magnitude-9 quake and a tsunami 1,000-feet high.I am not sure anything would happen on the south side of the island that would affect the rest of the chain - but this could have effects on the rest of the grouping.
I have always maintained that the folks in Hawaii are in for it big-time (according to the Lord's scales of justice). For some reason, they pushed the whole gay agenda thing there - and it passed. Then the fight was taken to Californication - and Prop 8 went down. Then it went Federal and the rest is history. Hawaii was the seed and the start. Why, with the large LDS population, etc they allowed it there, I am not sure. Is the attitude amongst the members there similar to the attitude on the islands in general? I do not know (other than I have heard that the population is very liberal with lesbianism being accepted/tolerated in congregations, as it was historically before the gospel was there) - but there will be a large debt to pay - amongst many that will generally be called in during the Tribulations.
As I tell those who are in positions of influence and authority over others - "You never want to be the first one that drags the rest of them down." Whether it is Ed Decker, Tal Bachman, Denver Snuffer, all the way back to early apostates in the Church. The burden will be a heavy one to bear - because the ripples, over time, become quite huge. God will not be mocked. Where much is given, much is required.
Here is more for the non-faint-of-heart:
The Hilina Slump is a 5,000 cubic mile (20,000 kilometre³) section of the Big Island of Hawaii on the south flank of the Kilauea volcano. Between 1990 and 1993, Global Positioning System measurements showed a southward displacement of the south flank of Kilauea up to approximately 10 centimeters per year. The slump has the potential of breaking away at a faster pace in the form of an underwater landslide. In Hawaii, landslides of this nature are called debris avalanches. If the entire Hilina Slump were to slide into the ocean at once, it could cause an earthquake in excess of a 9 in magnitude, and a megatsunami. Previous megatsunamis in Hawaii 110,000 years ago caused by similar geological phenomena may have created waves 1,600 feet (500 m) tall.<<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilina_Slump
