 Reversal of vertical deformation is recorded and lava continues elapsed by ancient castings

Of the 2,719 infrastructures damaged by lava, 2,587 have been destroyed and 132 have suffered damage; While with respect to roads, there are 73.4 the kilometers of destroyed and another 3.3 kilometers that may have damage.

Copernicus has updated on this Sunday the monitoring of the area of the Volcano 'Old Summit', in El Paso (La Palma), whose lava has covered since the eruption began on September 19 a total of 993.7 hectares, Affected or destroying so far 2,722 buildings and infrastructures.

This is as follows from the satellite data of the European Union-dependent program according to the last mapping - the number 47- corresponding to the situation on the morning of this Sunday and that reflects an increase of 1.3 hectares and three buildings with respect to to the previous update.

The natural phenomenon that began on September 19 has forced the evacuation of more than 7,000 neighbors from nearby areas, from which more than 2,000 are directly affected by having their residence within the volcano perimeter.

Of these people with homes in the area of the eruption, 1,576 are neighbors of the plains of Aridane, 391 of El Paso and 122 are neighbors of the municipality of Tazarote.

According to the last update of Copernicus monitoring carried out on yesterday afternoon, the lava has covered since the eruption began on September 19 a total of 992.4 hectares, affecting or destroying 2,719 buildings and infrastructures.

On the other hand, of the 2,719 infrastructures damaged by lava, 2,587 have been destroyed and 132 have suffered damage; While with respect to roads, there are 73.4 the kilometers of destroyed and another 3.3 kilometers that may have damage.

Meanwhile, the quality of the air is during this weekend especially unfavorable in the municipalities close to the volcano - the passage, fuence, Tijarafe and the Plains of Aridane.

Tomorrow Monday will begin the transport work of the ashes to the vicinity of San Nicolás, south.

The important contribution of Piroclasts that was recorded yesterday referred from 18.00 in the afternoon, among other reasons because the wind was intensified. The past days have been quite bad for the amount of ash in suspension in populated areas, as in the plains of Aridane.

The danger depends on where the lava is directed. In the sense, the current situation is favorable so that there is no personal injury and so that there is no more damage to parcels or personal property, the pevolca stands out.

In the next 48 hours the scenario is favorable for operations at the airport of La Palma.

As for the meteorology, with the entry of the air in the east, they will not increase the particles in suspension, at least in this way. And no more precipitation is expected.

The air quality offers breathable levels, significantly better than last week. The threshold of the past days has been overcome.

Scientific teams have registered a reversal of vertical deformation in most stations located in the area of the Palma Volcano and the lava continues to elapse by ancient castings with some punctual overflow.

"Reverts vertical deformation in most of the seasons, particularly in Jedey, where we already had a problem a few days ago with a punctual rise of 9.5 centimeters. That has reversed and the rest of the stations is based on deflation" , Morcuende said.

He added here that follows with an "important contribution of lavas" but always above previous castings, a fact that tiled "important", since it is sought to do not hurt more.

In this regard, Carmen López pointed out that the lavas that continue occupying the central sector of the affected surface and that slut some of the tubes and pre-existing volcanic channels without affecting new surface.

For its part, over 6:00 pm yesterday, the lava emission rate increased, highlighting the advance of a flow to the southwest that runs north of the cogote mountain.

The Vulcanologist at the National Geographical Institute (IGN) Stravos Meletlidis has pointed out this Sunday that we must not try to date the end of the old summit eruption, in the palm, because the process of changing a volcano is "continuous and complex".

Meletlidis has pointed out, in statements to the advanced command, that on Saturday there were a lava flows that had not been observed in recent days, but discard that the term of reactivation is used "because the volcano has not He never stopped his activity ".

The only time that some paralysis occurred in the activity was a month and a half for a few hours, but the rest are changes in which you can produce moments of greater or lesser activity, explosive, ash or emission of lavas, says the expert

Those responsible for the Canary Islands volcanic emergency plan) have offered at the press conference the latest data from the evolution of the Palma Volcano. Carmen López has ensured that the levels of air quality are maintained: "Yesterday the particle levels were bad in the plains of Aridane, today they are somewhat better".

However, the director of the pevolca, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, has considered that the possible increase in suspension particles due to an east wind contribution, from 1,200 meters, will worsen the problems that already existed in Los Llanos. "The quality of the air is extremely unfavorable and the people who go to the street must use at least FPP2 mask". People with greater risks should wear glasses by suspended particles under 10 microns.

The eruption of the Old Summit volcano, on the island of La Palma, has fulfilled in the central hours of Sunday 50 days active without there being data that aim at a short-term completion.

The natural phenomenon that began on September 19 has forced the evacuation of more than 7,000 neighbors from nearby areas, from which more than 2,000 are directly affected by having their residence within the volcano perimeter.

Of these people with homes in the area of the eruption, 1,576 are neighbors of the plains of Aridane, 391 of El Paso and 122 are neighbors of the municipality of Tazarote.

According to the last update of Copernicus monitoring carried out on yesterday afternoon, the lava has covered since the eruption began on September 19 a total of 992.4 hectares, affected or destroying 2,719 buildings and infrastructures.

The Ministry of Ordination of the Territory of the Cabildo of La Palma has made available to the Government of the Canary Islands the area of 7,646 m2 destined to the Insular Auditorium, located in Los Plains of Aridane, so that they can install housing there for people affected by eruption o Disappeared basic equipment and equipments and endowments.

The Councilor of the Area, Gonzalo Pascual, has indicated that it is so looking for the appeal of the Regional Executive, which requested the cooperation of all administrations to offer public property soil for the location of possible provisional housing and also to recover those businesses that could have been affected. "

"We are aware that there are many families who are going through very bad and we are sure that this soil is going to serve for these people to re-reduce their lives as soon as possible," he said.

The National Geographical Institute (IGN) has reported that the highest-magnitude earthquake this weekend has been the occurred at 8:40 p.m. yesterday, from 4.5, 36 kilometers of depth and sense with intensity IV in the Island of La Palma.

The National Geographic Institute (IGN) has reported this Sunday that the volcanic tremor of the palm eruption has high levels, with intensification pulses.

The IGN has specified in a statement that the network of stations on the island shows that the elevation recorded on days 4 and 5 at the LP03 station, which is the closest to eruptive centers, has totally reversed.

However, the southwest deformation recorded by the station still continuous and in the rest of the stations there is a slight deflation possibly related to deep seismicism.

The General Directorate of Safety and Emergencies of the Government of the Canary Islands has declared extremely unfavorable the quality of the air in the municipalities of Tazacorte, the plains of Aridane, El Paso, Tijarafe and Tipagorda, in the palm, by the presence of PM10 particles.

According to the Government in a statement, the daily value of 150 g / m3 has been exceeded at the Aridane Llanos station since November 2, 2021, associated with emissions from volcanic activity.

The declaration, in force since yesterday at 5:00 pm, is motivated by the presence of small particles dispersed in the atmosphere, and whose diameter is less than 1 micrometer.

The Cabildo de la Palma has announced that the emergency management will allow irrigation in the bulb area throughout the morning of this Sunday.

The neighbors of the area evacuated by the Old Summit Volcano can also access this Sunday to collect appliances, as reported by the Cabildo of La Palma.

In this sense, the insular institution has recalled that people who want to go through their homes or farms will have to carry the DNI or any other document that accredits the residence in that place.

Thus, both the neighbors of the North Zone -Tacande, Hat and Laguna crossing - like those of the South Zone-The Charco, the rowing, Green Charco, Puerto Naos and the Hoyas - can go to their homes and farms.

Black snow covers everything in the villages around the old summit. In some areas of the south, such as naos stains or harbor, it exceeds three meters high. It will not take long to fully bury hundreds of houses that had dodged the lava. Gonzalo Suárezhabla with the neighbors.

The latest report of the National Security Directorate (DSN) collects that the eruptive process continues and that the lavas take them to the northwest without affecting new surfaces. In general, all the castings are almost without movement.

The 'seismic swarm' continues active south of the Old Summit where earthquakes are taking place at depths between 10 and 15 kilometers mostly.

However, the pebolca does not consider there to exist data that aim that the term of volcanic eruption will occur in the short term, estimated as relevant the reduction of seismicity despite the earthquake of 4.5 to 36 kilometers deep.

The National Geographical Institute (IGN) has detected a total of 18 in the Palm, among them, three were felt by the population, although they did not exceed the magnitude 3,4.

Two of the three seity senses, of 3.4 and 3.3 occurred in fuence and the other, of 3.2 in mallet and the three were registered at dawn and in depths between 13 and 14 kilometers, according to the same sources.

The greatest earthquake of this weekend has been 4.5 and intensity IV in fuence at 36 kilometers deep and at 20:40 hours on Saturday.

According to the latest report of the National Security Directorate (DSN), published at 08.00 hours of this Sunday, on the eruption of the Palma Volcano, the weather is still favorable for maritime and aeronautical operation.

The General Security and Emergency Directorate, in application of the pebolca, has indicated at the last time of this Sabbath that the quality of the air is "extremely unfavorable" in the municipalities of Los Llanos de Aridane, El Paso, Tazacorte, Puntagorda and Tijarafe due to The particles in suspension.

Therefore, they recommend to the population to be aware of symptoms such as cough or eye irritation and ask to avoid prolonged outdoor stay.

The spokesman for the Scientific Committee of the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergencies Plan (Pevolca), Carmen López, said yesterday that there is no scientific data that indicates that in the short term the eruption of the old summit volcano, in La Palma.

Copernicus updated in the central hours of this Saturday the monitoring of the 'Old Summit' area, in El Paso (La Palma), whose lava has covered since the eruption began on September 19 a total of 992.4 hectares, Affected or destroying 2,719 buildings and infrastructures so far.

The lava continues to advance through the castings created so far by the volcano, without affecting new areas, and the meteorology on the island of La Palma is favorable face to take away the gases cloud issued, the Committee's spokesperson has reported this Saturday Pevolca scientist, Carmen López.

"Take equal, overflowing at some points but without affecting new surfaces," he said at the press conference after the daily meeting of the pebolca.
