National Guard arrives in Hawaii town threatened by lava

PAHOA Hawaii (Reuters) - National Guard troops arrived in a Hawaii town threatened by a slow-moving river of molten lava on Thursday, and were greeted with cheers by residents of the Big Island community where they are to provide security as the volcanic flow advances. The lava flow from the Kilauea volcano has been slithering toward the Big Island village of Pahoa for weeks, although it slowed to a turtle's pace on Thursday and at last watch had advanced only a few feet (meters) over several hours, said Darryl Oliveira, director of Hawaii County Civil Defense. #facebook #United States #India #China #Brazil #Technology #France #Middle East #United Kingdom #Mexico #Hawaii #opinion
