Rivers of lava pour from La Palma volcano

A lava stream was seen advancing through a mountain near La Laguna village.

Lava has destroyed more than 2,000 properties on the island since the Cumbre Vieja volcano began erupting in mid-September and thousands more have fled their homes as a precaution, prompting the government last month to pledge 225 million euros ($260 million) in aid.

More than 7,000 people have had to evacuate their homes, but no one has died in the eruption.
