Hawaii lava flow ramps up as new magma mixes with old

Hawaii lava flow ramps up as new magma mixes with oldLava oozing out of cracks for two weeks in rural Hawaii neighborhoods took on new characteristics as fresher magma mixed with decades-old magma, sending a flow toward the ocean Saturday. The change is attributed to new magma mixing with 1955-era magma in the ground, creating hotter and more fluid flows, scientists said. "There's much more stuff coming out of the ground and it's going to produce flows that move further away," said Wendy Stovall, a U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist.

Officers 'did what they could' in Texas killings: chief

Officers 'did what they could' in Texas killings: chiefTwo officers "did what they could" when a teenager opened fire and killed 10 inside a Texas school, their chief said Saturday, tight-lipped about a probe into the latest US mass shooting. Friday's massacre in the rural community of Santa Fe wounded 13 more, including a school police officer who is in critical condition. Dimitrios Pagourtzis, a 17-year-old student at the same Santa Fe High School, is being held on two charges: aggravated assault to a public servant and capital murder, which means he could face the death penalty.

Unfazed by all the fuss, how the bridesmaids and pageboys stole the show at the royal wedding

Unfazed by all the fuss, how the bridesmaids and pageboys stole the show at the royal weddingIt was the merest flash of mischief in what was otherwise an impressively poised performance from the youngest members of the bridal party. As three vintage Rolls-Royces carrying the troop of six beautifully dressed bridesmaids and two of the four pageboys rolled towards St George’s Chapel, Princess Charlotte cheekily stuck her tongue out and waved at the crowd. The children appeared to take it all in their stride as they hopped out of the car and were gathered together by their mothers and herded up the steps to the chapel. The Duchess of Cambridge took charge and – holding her daughter’s hand, and that of three-year-old Florence van Cutsem – led the way into the chapel, while Ms Markle’s best friends, Jessica Mulroney and Benita Litt, followed with their daughters Ivy, four, Remi, six, and Rylan, seven, and Zoe Warren (wife of Prince Harry’s close friend Jake Warren) brought up the rear with two-year-old Zalie.

Twins Brian and John Mulroney, seven, had the important job of accompanying Meghan up the aisle. The boys, wearing frock-coats made to look like miniature versions of the Blues and Royals worn uniform by Prince Harry, proudly held a corner each of Meghan’s train, as designer Clare Waight Keller adjusted it on the steps. A look back at royal bridesmaids and pageboys Each pageboy had his initials embroidered in gold on his shoulder straps, while the bridesmaids wore ivory silk dresses with little puffed sleeves, hand finished with a double silk ribbon tied in a bow. The boys were dressed smartly in frock coats Credit: Ian West/PA As a keepsake, each of the girls wore leather shoes monogrammed with their initials and the wedding date. Once inside the church, the children were ushered asid

Hawaii lava flow engulfs more homes as ash plume ascends

Hawaii lava flow engulfs more homes as ash plume ascendsBy Terray Sylvester PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) - New, fast-moving lava poured from the flank of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano on Saturday, destroying four more homes on the Big Island after a second explosive eruption shot a nearly two-mile-high (10,000 foot) ash plume from the crater. Molten rock from two huge cracks formed a single channel and traveled 1,000 feet in under an hour, twice the speed of previous flows of older lava that have torn through homes, roads and tropical forest for over two weeks, the County of Hawaii's Civil Defense Agency said. The new lava, which is flowing east underground from the sinking lava lake at Kilauea's summit, is expected to create more voluminous flows that travel further, threatening homes and a coastal road that is a key exit route for around 2,000 residents.
