Fiery Lava Delta Sizzles in Sea Off Spanish Island of La Palma

Glowing rivers of lava lit up the night on the Spanish island of La Palma on Wednesday, November 10, as the island approached the two-month mark since the Cumbre Vieja volcano’s first eruption on September 19.

The Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (Involcan) released video they said was captured at 6:45 pm local time on Wednesday, showing the fiery lava delta.

The European Union’s Copernicus satellite program estimated that volcanic lava covered 999.6 hectares of land on La Palma by November 9, destroying 2,605 buildings. Credit: Involcan via Storyful
