Amateur footage has emerged capturing a powerful flash flood, which swept up two vehicles in the US state of Nevada. Eyewitness Doug Bennett said he was about 30 miles north of Las Vegas on Monday afternoon when water started flowing over the US route 95 highway. Bennett said a Ford Sedan and a Toyota Prius were stranded in muddy floodwaters when a wall of water drew near.
Punaluʻu Beach (also called Black Sand Beach) is a beach between Pāhala and Nāʻālehu on the Big Island of the U.S. state of Hawaii. The beach has black sand made of basalt and created by lava flowing into the ocean which explodes as it reaches the ocean and cools. This volcanic activity is in the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Punaluʻu is frequented by endangered Hawksbill and Green turtles, which can often be seen basking on the black sand.
