Hawaii Home Values

landscapingAnd the home value crisis continues. If you click on the picture you will get a larger view of just how bad this person's home value problem really is.

Actually this is a home abandonded when the Royal Gardens was overrun by Kilauea many years ago. This was a development of homes just like a suburb on the mainland, and its destruction by flowing lava was no joking manner. This portion was not directly destroyed at the time, but had to be abandoned due to the risk of future lava flows. Obviously that risk was not exaggerated. You can see the streets of the former subdivision on the right in the larger picture.

This flow is now reaching the ocean for the first time since June 2007.
