President Obama Signs Hawaii Disaster Declaration
Now Hawaii has surpassed Louisiana for variety on this slow moving lava disaster, although we do STILL have the Bayou Corne/Texas Brine Sinkhole
The declaration frees up federal money to help protect local communities from the lava flow, which began moving toward homes on the big island of Hawaii on June 27 and is threatening Pahoa village.
The leading edge of the flow has paused about 185 yards from Pahoa Village Road, the main thoroughfare through the town of about 800 residents at the site of an old sugar plantation.
No homes have been destroyed and no injuries have been reported. ~Yahoo News/Reuters
