La Palma Island woke up for the fifth day in a row without experiencing the tremors of the volcano that residents have been accustomed to for more than 3 months.
Is the volcano sleeping? It is now five days since calm returned to La Palma Island, where the Cumbria Vijay volcano erupted on September 19. Stop erupting lava, lower crater temperature, and reduce earthquakes. Volcanologists are still cautious but are considering a number of data about the end of the activity.
