The Spanish volcano has a new lava flow that worries experts – news

Vulcão Cumbre Vieja voltou a despejar lava na ilha de La Palma, na Espanha

This Thursday (25) there was a new lava flow on the Cumbre Viza volcano located on the island of La Palma in Spain, which reached a cemetery and a photovoltaic solar plant. Volcanic activity began more than two months ago, on September 19th.

The molten rock rises early in the morning and descends parallel to the tenth stream, moving to an area with already deserted houses and gardens, explained Miguel Angel Morkunde, technical director of a special project to protect against volcanic hazards. Canary Islands (Povolka).

The new lava river, in the opinion of experts, is called “bad news” because it reaches previously unaffected areas and “destroys everything in its path”, although recently slowed down.

Researchers and technicians will meet today to monitor the flow and analyze the path.

In addition, according to Morkunde, an increase in the rate of lava eruption is observed with the widening of the channels.

The epicenter was reported below the epicenter, at 3.9 on the Richter scale.

Earthquakes continue to occur at low levels, with no signs of significant deformation on Earth.

Carbon dioxide emissions related to the explosion are still estimated to be 30,000 tons per day, and the downward trend, which started on September 23 this year, continues four days after the start of the operation.

In the last 24 hours, high levels of gases have been detected in the air in the evacuation area created around the Cumbre Views, in the Las Manzas and La Bombilla areas. For the rest of La Palma Island, the situation is considered good or fair.
