Glowing Lava Shoots From Spain's La Palma Volcano

Spain’s Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island La Palma spewed glowing lava into the night sky, amid continued eruptions on November 1.

Footage taken by the Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (Involcan) shows eruptive activity on Monday night.

As of October 31, lava had claimed some 975 hectares on the island, according to the European Union’s Copernicus satellite program. Analyzing imagery, scientists with Copernicus determined that 2,574 buildings on La Palma have been destroyed since eruptions began on September 19. Credit: INVOLCAN via Storyful
