Fortunately there was a decent tremor about two weeks ago that shut down the Plume coming out of Halema'uma'u. The beauty of living in Hilo is that %90 of the times the winds are out of the NE and blow the vog south and west.
Currently we've been in a SW "Kona Wind" pattern and it's keeping the vog on the east side (that's the other %10 of the time).
Bummer for the folks south and west of HI Volcanoes Nat'l Park %90 of the time though.....
