Ash Darkens Sky on La Palma as Volcanic Eruptions Continue

A large plume of ash was seen rising from the Cumbre Vieja volcano on October 11, 22 days after eruptions began on the Canary Island of La Palma.

By October 11, lava flows had “affected” 1,281 buildings, according to El Pais.

Crews were monitoring the lava flow as it advanced in an industrial park.

Airports were operating early on October 11, but a change in wind direction was expected, El Pais reported, potentially causing difficulties for flights due to the ash cloud. Credit: Ruben Lopez via Storyful
