How can volcanoes affect my property on the Big Island?

Lia from Orange County asks:

I’m a registered nurse living in Orange County, CA. I would love to move to Hawaii one day. I love Kailua, Oahu. I think you live there?
My family (husband and a 5 year-old daughter) we go there every year, except for this year due to COVID-19. While we love Kailua, we cannot afford to live there, so we are thinking of purchasing a place, perhaps a condo in Kailua-Kona in Big Island. Our concern is the active volcanoes in the Big Island. Please let us know what you think of Kailua-Kona, should we consider it? Thank you so much for your response. Take care! Lia.
