US President Donald Trump on Wednesday ruled out the Demilitarized Zone that divides the Korean peninsula as a venue for his upcoming summit with Kim Jong-un.

Trump, who had previously named the DMZ and Singapore as possible sites for the landmark meeting, told reporters at the White House the time and place would be announced “within three days.”

Asked if the meeting would be held in the DMZ, as Trump had suggested last week, he said it would not be.

Trump has said that the date and venue for the summit have now been set, but cautioned that the arrangements were still being worked out.

Everything can be scuttled,” he said, when asked if the summit plans could yet be derailed.
He said a  lot of good things can happen, a lot of bad things can happen
 I believe that both sides will negotiate a deal. I think it’s going to be a very successful deal. I think we have a shot at making it successful. But lots of things could happen.

Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano after a magnitude-5.0 earthquake struck the Big Island on Thursday.Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano continued to erupt Friday afternoon and the island suffered a series of earthquakes with the strongest registering as a 6.9 on the Richter scale, the United States Geological Survey said. Authorities confirmed that some homes were “touched by the lava flow” after more than a thousand residents were forced to flee.Hawaii residents flee volcanic threat

A barrage of earthquakes struck the Leilani Estates region this week, and while they did not trigger a tsunami, strong shaking was felt across the region Friday, according to the National Weather Service. The largest recorded earthquake in the area struck the same region more than 40 years ago, registering as a 7.1-magnitude.

Gov. David Ige activated the Hawaii National Guard to assist with evacuations and security.

About 770 structures are in the threatened mountainside subdivision. Government officials opened shelters at two community centers to accommodate those who rushed out of the lava’s path.

Officials said highways, buildings and utility lines were not damaged, but residents said they felt strong shaking and more stress as they dealt with the dual environmental phenomena.

Communities in the mostly rural Puna district, which sits on Kilauea’s eastern flank, know it is one of the world’s most active volcanoes and have seen its destruction before.

Two new volcanic vents, from which lava is spurting, developed Friday, bringing the number formed to five.Image result for Lava and strong earthquakes force mandatory evacuations on Hawaii's Big Island

Scientists were processing data from the earthquakes to see if they were affecting the eruption, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory spokeswoman Janet Babb said.

“The magma moving down the rift zones, it causes stress on the south flank of the volcano.
