Lava From Cumbre Vieja Volcano Rolls Across La Palma

The Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (Involcan) shared footage on October 28 of lava rolling across the ground on the Spanish island of La Palma, where the Cumbre Vieja volcano has been erupting for more than five weeks.

The volcano first erupted on September 19. A new south lava flow was reactivated and was running parallel to another on Camino Aniceto, Involcan said.

As of Wednesday, lava flows had destroyed 2,183 buildings, the EU’s Copernicus Emergency Management Service said. Credit: INVOLCAN via Storyful
