LIVE – Updated at 08:04

Thousands of people have been evacuated, homes have been destroyed by lava and flights have been cancelled after a volcano erupted on the Spanish Canary Island of La Palma on Sunday.

One hundred homes have been destroyed as the lava continued to flow on Monday in two streams through a mostly unpopulated area.

Authorities have already evacuated about 5,000 people from villages and the 15-metre high lava flow has already swallowed 20 houses in the village of El Paso and sections of roads.

Local airline Binter said today it cancelled four flights to and from the island of La Gomera, that neighbours La Palma, due to the eruption.

Canary Islands government chief Angel Victor Torres told SER radio: “There will be considerable material damage,” he said. “We hope there won’t be any personal injuries.”

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has arrived on the island today after canceling his trip to New York to attend the UN General Assembly.

Graph: Eruption’s amplitude across first day

Monday 20 September 2021 17:26 , Joanna Taylor

The Canaries Volcanology Institute has shared a graph showing the progression of the amplitude of the volcano’s eruption.

The red line marks the start of the eruption, recorded by the Canary Seismic Network, while the green line shows the amplitude’s gradual decline over time.

“The volcanic tremor is a very reliable indicator of energy released by Strombolian activity, that is, by the small explosions taking place in the crater of the volcano,” the institute wrote.

The volcanic eruption on La Palma was picked up by a weather satellite orbiting the earth, NASA has said.

The Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite caught a “bright glow” during the eruption.

Lava hitting flowing into the sea could trigger toxic gases

Monday 20 September 2021 14:22 , Joe Middleton

Lava flowing from a volcano and into the sea could trigger toxic gases and reduce visibility at sea, experts have said.

The Canaries Volcanology Institute said on Sunday that when the lava reaches the sea, it could create a cloud of toxic gases as the molten rock cools rapidly.

Anticipating reduced visibility, maritime authorities have on Monday closed down shipping in the area to the west of the island where they expect the lava to reach the water.

Volcano eruption is a ‘great show’ claims Spanish minister

Monday 20 September 2021 13:28 , Joe Middleton

The Canary Islands are safe to visit and a volcano eruption there is a “wonderful show”, Spanish Tourism Minister Reyes Maroto today.

His comments come after 100 homes have been destroyed by lava flows and 5,000 people, including hundreds of tourists, had to be evacuated.

“The island is open,” Maroto told Canal Sur radio, calling the eruption “a wonderful show”.

“There are no restrictions on going to the island … on the contrary, we’re passing on the information so tourists know they can travel to the island and enjoy something unusual, see it for themselves,” she said.

Maroto’s remarks drew immediate criticism from Teodoro Garcia Egea, secretary general of the opposition People’s Party, who posted an article on Twitter quoting the minister and asked: “Can someone confirm the minister said that while hundreds of people are losing everything they have?”

There have been no deaths or injuries from the eruption but 100 homes have been destroyed by lava flows.

About 360 tourists were evacuated from a resort in La Palma following the eruption and taken to the nearby island of Tenerife by boat on Monday, a spokesperson for ferry operator Fred Olsen said.

Up to 9,000 tonnes of sulfur dioxide emitted per day

Monday 20 September 2021 13:05 , Tom Batchelor

Experts monitoring the eruption say that between 6,000 and 9,000 tonnes of sulfur dioxide is being released each day from at least two open mouths which are belching bright red magma into the air.

Monday 20 September 2021 11:59 , Joe Middleton

Around 100 houses have now been destroyed by the eruption in the Canary Islands.

A volcano on the Spanish Canary Island of La Palma is currently erupting, sending streams of lava and a plume of smoke and ash into the air from the Cumbre Vieja national park in the south of the island.

Thousands of residents are fleeing their homes and authorities had already begun evacuating the infirm and some farm animals from nearby villages before the volcanic activity had begun.

No injuries have been reported thus far but at least three streams of lava have been seen pouring from the crater and making their way down towards the sea.

Authorities have evacuated about 5,000 people from villages on La Palma as lava continues spewing from an erupting volcano on Monday, local officials said.

It is now spreading through the neighbouring village of Los Llanos de Aridane where hundreds of houses are at risk, he said.

Local authorities have evacuated about 5,000 people from four villages, including El Paso and Los Llanos de Aridane, and no further evacuation are likely to be necessary, Canary Islands regional president Angel Victor Torres said on Monday morning.

“The lava is moving towards the coast and the damage will be material. According to experts there are about 17-20 million cubic meters of lava,” he said.

Monday 20 September 2021 07:59 , Joe Middleton

Thousands of residents fled their homes on Spanish Canary Island of La Palma on Sunday after a volcano erupted, sending lava shooting into the air and streaming in rivers towards houses.

Authorities had begun evacuating the infirm and some farm animals from nearby villages before the eruption, in the Cabeza de Vaca area.

Video footage showed fountains of lava shooting hundreds of metres into the sky, and at least three orange rivers of molten rock pouring down the hill, tearing gashes into woods and farmland, and spreading as they reached lower ground.
