After calm, La Palma volcano shoots up cloud of smoke

The reactivation of the volcano took place at around 11:00 local time.

Experts said the black color was due to floating ashes being ejected by the volcano.

A Reuters witness said the volcano had stopped spewing smoke and the mountain was relatively quiet before the big cloud erupted bringing back explosive sounds.
