Terrible Explosion Shot by Drone Drone Shot on October 4, 2021, Shows Massive Lava Flow Sinks Thousands of Houses Around the Sea
An hour before midnight (local time) on Tuesday in La Palma, in Spain’s Canary Islands, when the lava flow from the volcano that erupted in the Cabeza de Vaca area of Cumbre Vieja national park reached the sea.
Although the changing rhythms of the eruption and the nature of the terrain of the Aridane valley raised doubts about whether it would arrive at all, and if so, where it would happen.
Since reaching the Atlantic Ocean, the lava from the volcano on La Palma has formed a 500-meter-wide delta in the sea. Strong winds have so far kept away the column of smoke rising from the shore, as well as any possible toxic gases due to the contact of lava with seawater.
