USA Update

Rick Lord Over the edge in Texas, a lake of lava in Hawaii, and a superior display by Mother Nature in Wisconsin on this USA Update

Texas... one person was injured after driving their car off a bridge in Lewisville. The car went off the highway and ended up in a small creek under the Interstate. The driver was taken to the hospital with injuries that amazingly appeared to be only minor. Crews were eventually able to lift the wreckage from underneath the bridge. Traffic on the Interstate was not affected...

Hawaii... a ferociously fiery sight on the Big Island. The lava lake in the overlook crater in Kilauea is going through a period of spattering. The liquid inferno is bubbling and shooting lava into the sky. The spattering is normal at the lake's margins, and the surface crust often flows toward the spattering source. Large bubbles at the surface tend to drive the activity...

Wisconsin... it's been a bitterly cold winter for much of the country. But thanks to that, beautiful ice caves have been forming on the Apostle Islands for the first time in six years. Lake superior is completely frozen, so people can safely walk out to reach the ice caves, which are two miles from shore. Many say it's worth the trek, but you better hurry- as soon as the weather turns warm, they'll be gone. And with that, we gone, on this USA Update.
