No end is in sight to La Palma volcanic eruption 

No end is in sight to the La Palma volcanic eruption. Nearly two months later, La Palma has not stopped erupting. Spanish authorities have stated that there is no indication that it will stop soon. The President of the Canary Islands, “Angel Victor,” said that scientists who have been monitoring the eruption of the volcano since the nineteenth day of September do not believe that it is on its way to calm, as the lava is still flowing quietly towards the sea.

No end is in sight to La Palma volcanic eruption 

Since the first eruption of the La Palma volcano, which occurred 50 years ago, lava, some of which reached a temperature of 1,300 degrees Celsius, has destroyed at least 2,700 buildings.

Thanks to the quick response of the Spanish authorities, the swift evictions took place without any losses among the residents of the island, which is home to approximately 85,000 people.

Satellites have captured molten rock that has covered more than 754 hectares of land, mostly in rural areas and farmland.

Emergency Committee spokeswoman Carmen Lopez said that there is no evidence that the eruption will stop soon.

Experts have tracked the impact that the volcano has had on other European countries, where they stated that the cloud consisting of sulphur dioxide, which resulted from the volcano, has already reached France, England, Poland, and Germany.
