La Palma volcano: New vent creates jets of red-hot lava as black molten rock engulfs island

From Global News.

Spain’s Cumbre Vieja volcano in La Palma appeared to be more active on Friday, sending up powerful jets of lava and a red-hot stream gushing down its slope.

Authorities on Thursday reported another vent had emerged as volcanic activity showed no sign of abating since the volcano first erupted on Sept. 19.

Meanwhile, drone footage showed a mass of black lava engulfing buildings on its way to the Atlantic ocean. The lava stream had engulfed 1,073 hectares of land by Wednesday, according to the EU satellite monitoring system Copernicus.
