Huge fissure opens on Hawaiian volcano

A massive new fissure opened on Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, hurling bursts of rock and magma with an ear-piercing screech on Sunday (May 13) as it threatened nearby homes within a zone where authorities had just ordered an evacuation.

The fissure, a vivid gouge of magma with steam and smoke pouring out both ends, was the 17th to open on the volcano since it began erupting on May 3. Dozens of homes have been destroyed and hundreds of people forced to evacuate in the past 10 days.

As seen from a helicopter, the crack appeared to be about 1,000 feet (300 meters) long and among the largest of those fracturing the side of Kilauea, a 4,000-foot-high (1,200-meter-high) volcano with a lake of lava at its summit. (c) 2018 Thomson Reuters

Liquid chocolate spill leaves Polish highway a sticky mess

It was an unusual day’s work for emergency workers in Graboszewo, Poland, on Wednesday, May 9th, as they were called out not to clear flames, but chocolate.
A tank truck carrying 12 tonnes of liquid milk chocolate overturned in the early hours of the morning after colliding with a traffic barrier, causing waves of the sugary liquid to coat Poland’s A2 motorway between Wrzesnia and Slupca.
The incident has lead to a rather sticky situation as traffic came to a complete standstill.
