Lava Flows From Cumbre Vieja Volcano Two Weeks After September Eruption

La Palma’s Cumbre Vieja volcano continued to erupt on October 2, just over two weeks after its initial eruption.

The Canary Islands volcano first erupted on September 19 after a series of tremors.

More than 1,000 buildings and almost 400 hectares (1.5 square miles) had been affected by the volcano’s eruption, according to La Palma council.

The effects of the volcano had also spread beyond the island, with sulfur plumes observed over Africa and the Atlantic Ocean, the European Union Earth Observation Program said.
