The lava is oozing forward at about 10 yards per hour near Pahoa Village Road and is headed in a northeastern direction. The flow is now 240 yards from the road, officials said. Residents in the down slope of the lava flow path… Read more

    Eric Frein Manhunt Hopes Deflated by Balloon's Failure

    (CANADENSIS, Pa.) — A giant helium balloon sent to Pennsylvania to aid in the manhunt for accused cop killer Eric Frein was returned after just one day, police said.

    Why Baltimore Is Hesitant to Open a 100-Year-Old Time Capsule

    (BALTIMORE) — The 100-year old time capsule discovered at Baltimore’s Washington Monument during a restoration project is so old that officials are hesitant to even open it. It will be moved to nearby Walters Art Museum where conservators will assess its condition and determine when it will be safe to open the box, according to the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy. The contents may have been exposed to the monument’s dampness for a century and may be in poor condition, officials said. Designed by architect Robert Mills, the nearly 200-year-old monument was the first one to honor the nation’s first president…. Read more

    (PAHOA, Hawaii) — A lava flow has reached properties in a small Hawaiian town, burning at least one building, with 40 to 50 homes and businesses at risk, officials said.
