Aloha friends,

longtime konaweb member here! planning on moving to the big island soon and i was wondering. Had a nice talk with a person familiar with Kona. She said Vog can be a problem with the lungs long term. Said lungs will have a black cast due to small volcanic particulates. Have you hear of this? any concerns or advice on this? particularly for someone that has asthma or young kids/grandkids visiting or living long term in kona? does this long term health effect just kona residents or all over the big island?

much mahalos.
