The unnamed man is in a serious condition after his leg was smashed by the volcanic debris, which can hit temperatures of over 1000 degrees Celsius at the point of eruption, in the town of Pahoa on Saturday.

"We have no way of knowing whether this is really the beginning or toward the end of this eruption," said Tom Shea, a volcanologist at the University of Hawaii. "We're kind of all right now in this world of uncertainty."
The United States and China said Saturday they had reached consensus on measures to "substantially" reduce the US trade deficit with Beijing by "significantly" increasing its purchases of US goods, but offered few details.
