New Lava Vents on La Palma Volcano Threaten Previously Unaffected Land

Scientists in La Palma, Spain, warned that lava flowing from new vents on the Cumbre Vieja volcano could reach previously unaffected areas of the island.

Footage shared by the Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (Involcan) on Monday, November 29, shows the new vents spewing lava.

Francisco Prieto, a representative of the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergency Plan, told local press the volcano was on course to break a previous record set in 1646, when the Tehuya volcano erupted and spewed lava for 84 days.

As of November 28, Cumbre Vieja’s lava flow had reached 1,147.7 hectares (approximately 2,836 acres) and had destroyed 2,748 buildings, Copernicus EMS reported. Credit: INVOLCAN via Storyful
