When is Hawaii due for a new island?

All the Hawaiian islands are from underwater volcanoes, it's been awhile since the last one came above the surface. Is there anymore coming along underneath the water??

Actually, Paul, you are off by three days, six hours and 27 minutes - you are early.

To be serious, it has started already - Lo`ihi, the youngest volcano of the Hawaiian Volcanic Chain, is still about 1,000 meters beneath the ocean's surface. See http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/volcanoes/loihi/

Hey, earn enough money and hire one of the private subs in the Hiwaiian Islands!
