Lyman Museum will present Brian Shiro of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory to discuss the reality of earthquakes in Hawaiʻi and how people can be better prepared to deal with them.

Shiro will explore the various types of earthquakes in Hawaiʻi, as well as an overview on their history and damaging effects in the Islands. He will also explain how seismologists monitor earthquakes and use the data they gather to predict volcanic eruptions, as well as how people can be prepared for a major earthquake and participate in the monitoring efforts through new technology.

The presentation will be offered twice on Saturday, March 27, from 3 to 4:30 p.m., and in the evening from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
