Hawaii National Guard Whistleblowers Warn Friends, Family Of Imminent Power-Plant Explosion, Tsunami

Authored by Shepard Ambellas via Intellihub.com,

"A friend that works with our Civil Defense shared to just be prepared [be]cause the data is going OFF THEIR CHARTS, setting off all kind [of] bells at work."

The highly-controversial Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) geothermal power plant has become a major issue of concern among U.S. government insiders who fear an imminent explosion of the plant may cause a massive tsunami and wreak havoc in the region due to the recent uptick in volcanic activity on Mount Kilauea.

2 days ago, lava was close...

What officials aren’t telling you is that PGV contains tens of thousands of gallons of highly flammable solvents which it uses to power its turbines. If earthquakes, eruptions, or fire cause this solvent to ignite it would trigger a massive explosion which National Guard/Civil Defense whistle-blowers fear will cause a massive tidal wave which would in turn threaten the Hawaiian Islands and the lives of people in the region.

A friend who received the alert from two different whistle-blowers immediately notified family members via a text message telling them to “be prepared.”

“Just got this from a friend,” the message read. “Hey loves, please notify friend and family [the] power plant [on] Hilo may explode within 48 hours which may cause earthquakes and tsunamis.”

The text message went on to read:

[It] would be a good idea to get prepared. Brock’s mom, her friend, is in the National Guard [and] is getting called in now to prepare in case this happens. They did not notify the public yet. FYI: Might have a tsunami warning withing 24 hours PLEASE make sure you make a meeting place or a number to call for your ohana. Oahu people will probably 20 minute[s] to go high up somewhere […] so please share this inside info to everyone.

A friend that works with our Civil Defense shared to just be prepared [be]cause the data is going OFF THEIR CHARTS, setting off all kind [of] bells at work.

Keep in mind, if this happens, all of the Hawaiian Islands may be affected.

Yikes! I had a line on a couple acres with a shack on it just northwest of the current fissure eruptions for 20k just a few months ago... I figured it was too good to be true.... now I'm thinking I was right!

Back in the "wild west days" of 1959, I lived three blocks away from a Rust-Oleum paint and chemical manufacturing plant, which also happened to be across the street from a grammar school.  There were also surrounding homes within 50 feet of the plant.  One beautiful Summer evening, the plant caught fire and was launching dozens of burning 50 gallon steel drums full of solvents hundreds of feet into the air.  What a beautiful show for a ten-year-old.  Miraculously, the drums launched straight up and not a single home was damaged.  Needless to say, the plant never reopened.  Nobody ever thought twice about having the equivalent of a bomb factory right next door. Those were the carefree "good old days", before the MIC and the Deep State became entrenched in every facet of life.

It's a geothermal plant. The turbines are obviously deep underground, and they run off of gnarly solvents.

That being said, i'm unsure if there are enough gallons of that explosive crap down there to cause an earthquake.

Hate arguing with you as you're one of my favorite contrarian-squared people on here. Ever lit a little butane on fire? Half a shot glass almost burned my fucking big ass redwood coffee table plus half my living room to a crisp, and that was the 1x stuff.

The pentane doesn't need to be aerosolised to disperse, and there is certainly the potential for a BLEVE style event, or even a more thermobaric event. YouTube is replete with videos (and good animations) showing just how hazardous flammable liquids / gases are, and there's this : -

So, whilst absolutely certainly not enough to "crack off a big chunk of island", we DO know such things have happened to the chain over the preceding millennia, so it is something to mull over (and wildly panic about, if that's your thing! :-D)

Binary fluid systems are designed to operate with lower "resource temperatures."  A fluid like water is pumped into the geothermal resource, or heat source, and transferred via heat exchanger to a low boiling point fluid.  Butane and propane are often used.  Smaller systems may use a CFC refrigerant.  A large amount of superheat, or a fluid sensible temperature well above the boiling point at the operating pressure, is required to drive turbines, as the fluid, traveling at near supersonic speeds through the turbine, cannot be allowed to condense until it has exited the turbine.  Typically steam turbines operate temperatures above 540 degrees F, or a pressure of 1000 psig.  If the source temperature is low, then you use a fluid like butane, which will produce 1000 psi at, if I remember, about 180 degrees F. 

Obviously, high pressure butane bursting out of a ruptured heat exchanger is damned dangerous, but it is not going to cause an earthquake or tsunami.  You still have to mix it with oxygen, and that requires a huge amount of air.  Big explosion followed by a big fire.  I expect the plant has some form of flare to burn off the butane in a controlled way.  I had a combustion engineer friend who designed such flares back in the eighties.  They were so damned big that, according to him, the Soviets had to be notified when they were tested, as their satellites would perceive the energy discharge as a missile launch.

Strange thing about those 55 gal drums.

Miraculously, the drums launched straight up and not a single home was damaged. 

I worked at the Diamond Shamrock polymer plant and there was an event that launched several 55 g drums. Pretty much 100 feet in the air, straight up. Damage was minimal, good thing too because some of that stuff could kill you in just a few minutes of exposure.

Earthquakes are going up in intensity and rising as expected due to deep quakes all around the ROF.  Japan just got a six or near six.  New Zealand just got a six and then another really deep quake soon after.  New Zealand could rise to seven now.  Japan's Sakurajima (sp?) has been going off for at least a month now and it puts out wayyy more ash and gasses then Hawaii.

Probably have just as good a luck with a Stormy Daniels hosing.

 

Guess what I did today?  Almost took the Darwin Award.  Poured some high-octane gas on a campfire trying to get it lit and....you guessed it!!!  Fire up to the can, the spout was momentarily in flames!  I was able to smother it quickly with my gloved hand.

Nobody ever thinks THEY can do something stupid....and then...Five..Four...Three...

What there not telling you is that it could cause WW3 because there are Chinamen on the otherside of the volcano and if they get any blow back from the power plant imploding into the center of the earth  they will mistake it as a nuclear attack and have to respond.  Additionally it will also cause the release of Godzilla on the Japanese so they are going to be super ninja pissed and the Koreans who don't want to be consider cold kim chi will get their Warriors rolling and maybe just maybe we can watch it all on pay per view for freeeeeeeeeeeee!
