Another 300 people have been evacuated as the volcano erupts on Palma Island

The total number of evacuees exceeded 7,000.

100 new underground shocks were registered, which, however, were weak or moderate.

One 4.5 magnitude underground shock has also been recorded, which has been the strongest since the eruption of the volcano on September 19.

Since the northern cone of the volcano fell last Saturday, the lava flow through the populated area to the ocean has intensified.

Lava has become hotter, reaching 1,200 degrees, as well as thinner, but its current – faster.

Lava destroyed 1,548 buildings, but lava and ash now cover an area of ​​680 hectares.

No one was injured or killed.

The island’s airport continues to operate, said the operator “Aena”, but it only serves a few airlines.
