Glowing Stream of Lava Flows From La Palma Volcano

Crews monitored ongoing eruptions at the Cumbre Vieja volcano on Monday, October 11, 22 days after the volcano’s initial eruption on the Spanish island of La Palma.

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

Footage shared to Twitter by the Canary Islands Volcanic Institute (Involcan) shows a “huge” block of lava flowing in the lava stream, as well as a view of the eruption at 6:15 pm local time from San Nicolas Road.

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: Involcan via Storyful
