Towering Dust Devil Twirls Near La Palma Volcano

A large dust devil twirled near the Cumbre Vieja volcano as it continued to erupt on Spain’s La Palma island on November 15.

Filmmaker and photographer Roberto Nazco Vicente captured the dust formation spinning while ash billowed out of the volcano.

The Canary Islands’ state meteorological agency reported a dust storm near the Cumbre Vieja on Monday, while the Canary Islands Volcanology Institute reported volcanic lightning in the large plume of ash.
