Current reports on the spectacular displays from the continuing eruption of Kilauea Volcano is NOT a cause for concern for the 2019 Island Eyes Conference.  Only 10 square miles out of the island’s 4,000 square miles are impacted by Kilauea’s lava.  All flights are operating to and from Kona and Hilo International Airports; and all shops, hotels and restaurants are open for business.  For more information on the volcano.
