In this Nov. 9, 2017, file photo, U.S. President Donald Trump China's President Xi Jinping arrive for the state dinner with the first ladies at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China. Trump is closing in on a decision to impose punishing tariffs on tens of billions of dollars of Chinese goods as early as June 15, a move that could put his trade policies on a collision course with his push to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons. Trump has long vowed to fulfill his campaign pledge to clamp down on what he considers unfair Chinese trading practices. But his calls for about $50 billion in tariffs could complicate his efforts to maintain China's support in his negotiations with North Korea. (Thomas Peter/Pool Photo via AP, File)

Lava from the Kilauea volcano flows in and around Pahoa, Hawaii. Officials here on Hawaii’s Big Island let some people back into their homes and scaled down emergency operations Monday as lava flowed into the ocean on a path that wasn’t threatening new areas.
“Some aspects of it can kind of start to scale down as the volcano somewhat runs into a stable situation,” Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency administrator Talmadge Magno said. “Stable” means lava continues to flow along a path toward the ocean that isn’t threatening new areas.
Lava has destroyed more than 600 homes. It’s possible a new fissure will open or vigorous flows could emerge from vents that have been inactive.
