The Big Island of Hawaii is over 4,000 square miles. The area of the volcanic eruptions covers 10 square miles and is the only part of the island that is affected. The Marriott resort (and airport) are on the island’s west side (opposite of the volcano) along the Kohala Coast, about 100 miles from the volcano and out of the zone of seismic activity. All hotels and resorts are operating as usual. More Details | Web Cam
