Unrelenting Cumbre Vieja Volcano Continues Erupting on Spain's La Palma

Crews in La Palma continued monitoring eruptions at the Cumbre Vieja volcano, which, more than a month after its initial eruption, had destroyed more than 2,000 buildings, according to official estimates.

Video filmed by the Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (Involcan) from Tacande on Thursday evening shows the scene and a close-up of the lava fountain illuminating the darkening sky.

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

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