A Cambridge Vijay Volcanic eruption, On the Spanish island of La Palma, finally came to an end after 85 days of operation, confirmed this Saturday (25) by technicians who have been following this phenomenon throughout the period.
“The blast is over,” said Julio Perez, a spokesman for the Canary Islands’ local government.
The volcano erupted on September 19 in the southern part of La Palma Island, spilling tons of lava for more than three months, invading thousands of hectares and forcing more than 2,000 people to evacuate.
When the tremor signal stops and all the parameters of the volcano subside, December 13 is considered by the Scientific Committee as the last day of the eruption.

However, they were given a few days to check that the volcano was not reactivating before the eruption was considered over. However, authorities say the emergency is not over.
“The dangers remain,” said a spokesman for the Canary Islands government.
Once the emergency is over, there will be reconstruction, which will begin next Monday (27), Perez said. In the first half of January, it is planned to rehabilitate people who lost their homes due to the advance of various lava flows.
The damage from the blast was staggering: more than 1,300 homes, farm buildings, leisure buildings, hotels, schools, as well as 73 kilometers of roads and other infrastructure such as water, electricity and telephone lines were covered by the lava. The damage was widespread as the volcanic eruption occurred in populated areas.
