Where there's no volcanic threat.lava fountain 01

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) are considering moving their Hawaiian Volcano Observatory to the island of Oahu, where there's no active volcanoes.

That doesn't make any sense considering the Big Island has three active volcanoes, and is near one active submarine volcano.

Their Hawaii Volcanoes National Park facility was destroyed due to thousands of earthquakes caused by the massive Kilauea eruption in 2018.

A move to Oahu doesn't make sense because geologists would need to stay on the Big Island to document activity.

It sounds like someone wants to move their office to a lava free location near the beach, while their field workers are working hard.
