La Palma on alert after volcanic cone partially collapses The damage has caused a “significant rise” in lava flows, mobilizing molten rock blocks and destroying more buildings on the Spanish island. The new volcano, which began erupting on September 19 at La Palma, in Spain’s Canary Islands, demonstrated its destructive power once again over the weekend.

On Saturday, part of the northern face of the volcanic cone collapsed, causing lava to overflow in different directions. The collapse has caused a “significant increase” in the amount of lava flowing out of the volcano, and mobilized blocks of molten rock measuring tens of cubic meters, sources at the Canary Islands Volcano Risk Prevention Plan (Pevolca) said on Sunday.
