A cat was in the spotlight at a recent tennis competition in Rome on May 18. During the game, four players stumbled over a cat that sprinted across the court at mid-point. It could have been a cat-astrophe if the curious creature hadn’t been lucky enough to avoid a collision and although no animals were harmed, man’s second best friend did force the players into a replay.
Large streams of lava erupted from fissures below Leilani Estates on Hawaii's Big Island. Aerial images showed numerous fingers of fast-moving lava streams flowing downhill. A man was injured when "lava spatter" landed on him as he was sitting on a balcony. Local media reported there were concerns about it entering the ocean, and threatening to release toxic gases.
