Authorities on the Spanish island of La Palma ordered the evacuation of the towns of Tajuya, Tacande de Abajo and the part of Tacande de Arriba that had not already been evacuated due to a volcanic eruption, emergency services said on Friday. Authorities initially ordered residents of those towns to stay indoors but moved to an evacuation due to intensifying volcanic activity, they said. The volcano on the island is continuing to produce explosions and spew out lava, five days after it erupted, authorities said. Loud bangs unnerved local people and sent shockwaves echoing across the hillsides on Friday.
