part of Cumbre Vieja volcano, in the Canary Islands,
It collapsed on Monday (4) and caused a glowing “river of lava” that continued toward the sea.
The volcano experienced an increase in lava activity, but according to the authorities, the path was similar to the previous one, and therefore there are no expectations for new population removals.
Cumbre Vega has already destroyed nearly 1,000 buildings and more than 30 kilometers of streets and roads since the eruption began two weeks ago.
The Prime Minister of Spain, Pedro Sanchez, promised to help rebuild the affected areas with an amount equivalent to 1.3 billion Brazilian reals.
