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

Skin-eating Asian fungus imperils world's salamanders

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A skin-eating fungus that infiltrated Europe through the global wildlife trade is threatening to inflict massive losses on the continent's native salamanders including extinction of whole species and could do the same in North America, scientists say. An international research team said on Thursday the fungus, first detected in Europe last year, has killed salamanders in the Netherlands and Belgium and is expected soon to reach other European nations. They said it is closely related to another fungus that already has wiped out some amphibian species. #United States #China #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion
