What a great word...

Polalauahi is also a great word. In my understanding it comes from pola, to flap in the wind (as the tail of a kite), and lauahi, to destroy by fire or lava flow (by the goddess Pele)

Is it possible for Honolulu to be voggy? Doesnʻt one need an active volcano for vog to form?

Often times the vog from the volcano Kīlauea on the island of Hawaiʻi drifts up the island chain and affects Oʻahu, although she has recently subsided quite a bit after the activity this summer.
