La Palma volcano, live updates today: eruptions, tsunami alert and latest news | Canary Islands


The Cumbre Vieja eruption sends the lava flow from the collapsed cone

After the collapse of part of the inner cone of Cumbre Vieja volcanoes there has been a massive increase in the size of the lava lake and a swelling of the lava flows that run down the mountainside.

Two of these, designated 1 and 4, are the largest and responsible for reconfiguring the island, contributing to the formation of the Great Delta in the Atlantic Ocean.

These photos are taken by Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands a day before the partial inner cone collapse shows the extent of the lava that now flows from the Cumbre Vieja. Experts have not yet given any indication of when the outbreak may stop, but has warned that it is not likely to happen soon.
