La Palma's Volcano Spews Ash and Lava Amid Renewed Eruptions

The Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma spewed ash and glowing lava, amid renewed eruptions on the evening of Thursday, November 11.

This footage, released by the Canary Islands Volcanology Institute, shows lava pouring from the volcano as large clouds of ash waft skyward.

The volcano has been erupting continuously since September 19, covering nearly 1,000 hectares (roughly 3.85 square miles) with lava, according to imagery analyzed by the European Union’s Copernicus satellite program. Scientists with Copernicus determined that volcanic activity claimed 2,605 buildings on La Palma as of the morning of November 9. Credit: Involcan via Storyful
