Destruction of a portion of the homes
A portion of the homes has effectively been annihilated after the 3 p.m. ejection on the southern finish of the island that sent a gigantic red crest of magma into the sky.
New ejections proceeded into the evening and came after a weeklong development of seismic action nearby.
5,000 individuals emptied from their homes
Around 5,000 individuals emptied from their homes, as per Victor Torres, president of the Canary Island.
No passings or wounds were promptly announced, as indicated by Mariano Hernández, president of La Palma island.
La Palma, one of eight volcanic islands in Spain
La Palma has a populace of 85,000. It is one of eight volcanic islands in Spain’s Canary Islands archipelago off Africa’s western coast.
Sunday’s volcanic emission on La Palma was the first on the island since 1971.
The underlying impact on Sunday sent a lava stream in the way of homes in the town of El Paso, annihilating eight homes, authorities said.
Statement made by Carlota Martín
Carlota Martín, who was a family plot in Todoque at the hour of blast, portrayed the frightening scene in a meeting with The Related Press.
“When we saw the column of smoke, we thought it could not be real, but it kept growing and we knew we had to get out of there,” said Martín.
“You leave, but you are also looking back because you want to see what will happen. Nobody knows how the lava flows will descend, but our plot and lots of houses in the area could be in the way,” said Martín.
