Lava Flows From La Palma Volcano After Eruption Passes Two-Month Mark

Veins of lava continued to flow downward from the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma on November 23, more than two months after eruptions on the Spanish island began.

Local authorities noted jets of lava and other pyroclastic material thrust from the volcano on Tuesday.

As of Monday, lava had covered around 1,074 hectares (roughly 4.15 square miles) on La Palma, claiming 2,676 buildings, according to the European Union’s Copernicus satellite program.
