Waves of glowing lava and smoky ash are belching and sputtering from the world’s largest active volcano and people on Hawaii’s Big Island have been warned to be ready if their communities are threatened. The ongoing eruption of Mauna Loa wasn’t immediately endangering nearby towns on Monday. But officials told residents to be ready in the event of a worst-case scenario. The U.S. Geological Survey says the eruption began late Sunday night in the volcano on the Big Island. Scientists had been on alert because of a recent spike in earthquakes at the summit of the volcano, which last erupted in 1984.

Republican officials in a rural Arizona county have refused to certify the 2022 election ahead of the Monday deadline despite no evidence anything was wrong with the vote count. The decision comes amid pressure from prominent Republicans to reject a vote count that had Democrats winning for U.S. Senate, governor and other statewide races. State election officials have vowed to sue Cochise County if the board of supervisors missed Monday’s deadline to approve the official tally of votes, known as the canvass. Two Republican supervisors delayed the canvass vote until hearing once more about concerns over the certification of ballot tabulators, though election officials have repeatedly said that the equipment is properly approved.

Russia has held back from launching a new round strikes that have been expected against power stations and other key infrastructure in Ukraine, as officials warned a lingering energy and water crisis from earlier attacks could prompt more evacuations from the capital. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba noted at an evening press conference in Kyiv that the day passed without a major Russian infrastructure attack. He told the largest foreign delegation to visit since the war began that air defenses are needed to protect infrastructure because otherwise, “Every time we will be restoring it, the Russians will be destroying it.” Kuleba spoke alongside seven foreign minsters from Russia’s neighbors and other northern European countries.
