All Canarian airports are again operational at noon of this Saturday after the airfield of La Palma has recovered its activity.
This normality, at least temporary, in the air contrasts with the situation on land. The volcano rugged again at dawn, part of the cone in the north and from there flowed a new lava pouring that already caused new and serious damage to the industrial polygon of the lagoon.
Binter has resumed his flight program on Saturday with the island of La Palma given the improvement of meteorological conditions for the recent behavior of the ash cloud.
In a statement, the Canary Airline has indicated that if the situation remains in the same way, the intention is to continue with the flights provided in the regular program of the company.
With this decision, Binter remains active entire operations although it will adopt precise measures to ensure safety according to the evolution of the situation.
The technical director of the Volcanic Emergency Plan of Canarias (pevolca), Miguel Ángel Morcuende, has wanted to call calm at a possible rupture in the Fajana (the Delta formed by lava) because it would only affect an area evacuated from the Principle of the eruption and wave that would always produce in case the phenomenon will take place - it would be a small size and decrease rapidly according to progress.
"The laundry sits on an area that has no stability, which can happen is that at a given moment the pressure of the lava weight exceeds the effort made by the sea for retaining it," he explained. What would take place at that time at the point where the final slope of the coastal platform begins - would be a break, which would be accompanied by small explosions by freeing more water vapor, probably also release of some gases Contents in the fajana and a wave at that particular point.
MorCuende has anticipated that this wave would have a dimensions of five meters exclusively at the point of rupture and lose height as it advances within a radius of 100/150 meters. "I want to call back to tranquility because if there is a small problem it will be 'in situ' in a place of rupture and will occur in territory already evacuated and excluded from the beginning of the eruption. There will be a picturesque phenomenon in the area and little More ", Morcuende has asserted.
As detailed, María José Blanco, director of the National Geographic Institute in Canarias, the Ash column reaches 3,500 meters high. And although in the appearance it has been cited that the presence of sulfur dioxide has been varying in the last hours, the technical director of the pevolca, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, has made a call to calm, ensuring that, in general, the quality of the air In the living areas is "reasonably good".
The appearance of new cast towards the north increases the surface covered by the magmatic material. The technical director of the volcanic emergency plan, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, has expressed this Saturday that the lava covers 492.75 hectares, the maximum width of his forehead remains at 1,250 meters, and the part corresponding to the delta in the ocean measures 32 hectares.
Morcuende has reviewed the evolution of the castings. The one who worries him most, he has said, is located in the industrial area of the alley of La Gata in the Plains of Aridane. It is about "an important mass that in the next few hours will try to fill a hollow", a process that can take between 24 and 36 hours.
Morcende has said that at this time we work to anticipate the lava after the lava can be directed and perform the evacuations that were necessary, although it considers that "there is plenty of time" to do so.
"The fissural eruption continues with its stonbolian mechanism," said María José Blanco, director of the National Geographic Institute in Canarias, at the beginning of the press conference of the volcanic emergency plan. After reviewing what happened with the last hours, with the collapse of the cone in the north and the appearance of a lava pouring in that direction, white has advanced that "the appearance of new emission points is not ruled out."
In its appearance, it has explained that seismicity is located between 10 and 15 kilometers of depth and has increased in the last hours. A maximum intensity of 4.1 degrees at 20 kilometers deep has been recorded.
Subsequently, in the same appearance, the Technical Director of the Emergency Plan, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, has described as "light" that increase in seismicity and added that "in principle the probability of new emitting centers is very low."
Neighbors of the Barrio de los Charcos, from the Municipality Palmer de Fuencaliente, return this Saturday for 45 minutes to the houses of which were evicted on September 19, and they do it between a cloud of ash, while in the urban nucleus of the municipality Luce the Sun.
A great contrast is lived when from the urban nucleus of Fuencaliente someone is directed to the neighborhood of Los Charcos, whom the neighbors can access this Saturday to pick up some goods and, if it gives them time, cleaning something, accompanied by agents of the civil guard In case it is necessary to go out again in a hurry.
The airport of La Palma has recovered the operation during the central hours of this Saturday, as reported by Aena, which adds that the ash cleaning tasks from the volcano in different areas of the airport enclosure continue.
However, the airport manager has recommended passengers to consult the status of their flight, since they are the airlines that must now decide if they operate the different connections or not.
For its part, the ash cloud caused by the Old Summit volcano, that tomorrow Sunday will be three weeks active, has been oriented to the south, according to the latest Report of the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centers (VAAC) of Toulouse.
With this return to activity in La Palma, all Canarian airports are operational at noon on Saturday.
The spokesman for the scientific committee of the pevolca (Volcanic Emergency Plan of the Canary Islands), María José Blanco, has said that the quality of the air in the Aridane Valley "is not good" and is maintained with the category of 'regular' that dictates the Regulations of the National Health System.
At a press conference to realize the last meeting and in which he has been accompanied by the Technical Director, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, White has indicated that the process of thermal investment is maintained between 700 and 900 meters and the winds are Weak, which prevents dispersion of polluting particles.
The Volcanological Institute of Canarias has reported that the new lava pouring through the northern part is generating "a tremendous destruction in its passage" and making it difficult for the movement of its equipment in the area.
The north face of the Old Summit Volcano cone (La Palma) suffered during the last night a partial collapse, which has meant the emission of casting in several directions.
As for the eruption, it continues to maintain the same behavior as previous days with a volcanic explosiveness that continues at level 2 of a scale with maximum.
The airport of La Palma continues inoperative by the ash issuance that generates the eruption of the Old Summit Volcano, has reported Spanish airports and air navigation (AENA).
In their social networks, AENA indicates that during the morning the situation will be reviewed but also emphasizes that the priority is security.
He adds that the rest of the Canary Islands are operative but notwithstanding, advises passengers who plan to fly to consult with their airline.
The Cabildo de la Palma has pointed out that the entrance of the evacuated neighbors will be allowed outside the security perimeter established by the Old Summit Volcano to collect clothing and appliances.
In any case, access to the area will be controlled and people will have the accompaniment of security personnel, after coordination with the corresponding City Council
Finally, the insular corporation has indicated, the measure may be subject to changes according to the weather conditions and evolution of the eruptive process.
The lava leaving the Old Summit Volcano, in El Paso (La Palma), has covered since the eruption began this Sunday, September 19, a total of 480.5 hectares affected or destroyed up to now 1,149 buildings and infrastructures.
This is as follows from the satellite data of the European Union Copernicus program according to the last mapping for midday on Thursday, October 7, and published at the last minute of this Friday.
The Copernicus program, coordinated through the National Monitoring and Emergency Coordination Center (CENEM), has devices for monitoring and monitoring national alert networks, potential risk situations, incidents and emergencies in the field of civil protection.
A hundred companion animals that were lost during the eruption of the old summit volcano of La Palma have managed to return with their masters, 23 of them with the collaboration of the Web "Animals La Palma", created nine days ago from Barcelona by the Fundación Franz Weber.
As explained by the director of the Franz Weber Foundation for Southern Europe and Latin America, the Argentine animal activist Leonardo Anselmi, held for years in Barcelona, have created the Web with the intention to be the contribution of his foundation to the tragedy that is Living the island of La Palma.
Anselmi denounces that many animals of the island have been left homeless because their masters have had to leave their homes and in the accommodation prepared by the administration to receive the animals are not allowed. [Read here the complete information]
The second lava language expelled by the old summit volcano, on the island of La Palma, advances south and is about 150 meters from the sea.
According to the last daily report of the Department of National Security (DSN), collected by servimedia, the eruption maintains the same behavior of previous days, with a volcanic explosiveness at level 2 (the scale is from 0 to 8, of less to greater magnitude) .
Lava emissions are concentrated in the emission centers of the main crater and discarded, at the moment, that another emission mouth arises.
Sismicity remains localized at a great depth and the Lavico Delta (Fajana) continues to be extended north-south. "Having reached the limit of the insular platform, to maintain the advance at higher depths could result in a collapse of his forehead, which could be accompanied by the abrupt release of gases, hydromagma explosions and wave generation," warns the DSN, Organ of advice from the government presidency.
The northern face of the eruption cone of the new Volcano de la Palma has collapsed during the morning of this Saturday, it has reported Itahiza Domínguez, of the Canary Islands Volcanological Institute (Involcan).
In social networks, the Vulcanologist Itahiza Domínguez has indicated that the partial collapse of the north face of the new volcano cone has led to the emission of casting in several directions.
This volcano is on eruption since September 19 in the municipality of El Paso, and nine days later La Colado arrived at sea in Tazacorte.
A scientific expedition of the Andalusian Institute of Geophysics and prevention of seismic disasters from the University of Granada has returned to La Palma to install a second seismic equipment that allows to improve monitoring and monitoring the eruption of the Old Summit Volcano.
This new instrumentation (array "or seismic antenna) will be added to the one that was already installed a little more than a week ago to control seismic activity in the area, as an indicator of the dynamic state in which the volcano and evaluation tool is located To manage the earthquake-volcanic alert levels.
The instrumentation, specifically designed for the study of the characteristic signals of volcanic environments and that requires a high scientific-technical qualification, was settled at a record time by personnel of the University Institute, has explained to Efe Enrique Carmona, member of the Andalusian Institute of Geophysics and Professor of the UGR in the Master's "Geophysics and Meteorology".
The latest report at the Toulouse Meteorology Agency of this morning on the Ash Cloud of the Palma Volcano confirms that it has been oriented south, leaving free the area of Tenerife, whose airports work normally.
However, for safety, the warning is maintained at the crews with Destiny Tenerife to load extra fuel in case there were changes in the wind that could affect the airports of the island.
In this way, all the airports of the Canary Islands, except that of the Island of La Palma, are operating without incidents and the initial forecast is that it continues like this during the day.
The National Geographic Institute (IGN) has located 37 earthquakes in La Palma during the morning of this Saturday, among which the highest magnitude has reached 4.1, and has occurred at 00.36 hours in the municipality of Fuencaliente and 14 kilometers deep.
Of the 37 earthquakes localized during the first hours of Saturday, 30 have occurred in Fuencaliente and 7 in Mazo, and 9 of them have had magnitude 3 or higher.
The last of the earthquakes recorded until 07.28 hours has been located in the municipality of Fuencaliente, with magnitude 3.2 and 11 kilometers deep.
Scientists have warned that, if the advance continues at higher depths in the sea of the Lavic Delta, the farade generated by volcanic eruption in the palm, a collapse could be produced from its forehead that would be accompanied by the abrupt release of gases, with hydromagma explosions and waves.
The spokesman for the Scientific Committee of the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergencies Plan (pevolca), María José Blanco, has indicated at a press conference this Friday that this situation could occur because the fajana has reached the limit of the insular platform and, so So much, it is foreseeable that its progress continues.
White has added that meteorological conditions are unfavorable for air quality, although forecasting is that it improves from this Saturday; In fact the plume of ash and sulfur dioxide that extends from the volcano is affecting the operability of the airports of La Palma and Tenerife North and can extend this afternoon to the Aerodrome of Tenerife South and, at night, Al de la Gomera .
When it turns twenty days of eruption, the Old Summit volcano has overflowed for the first time this Friday the island of La Palma, when the ash cloud will be extended until Tenerife and interrupting the operations at the surrounding airport, thus affecting the air traffic of All the Canary Islands.
Since in the morning, the airlines resigned to operate in North Tenerife by the presence of ash, even though Aena maintained the operation of the tracks, and diverted their flights to Tenerife South or directly delayed the links waiting for some improvement.
That improvement occurred early in the afternoon, when the Binter Air Company resumed its interinsular flight in North Tenerife and reinforced connections to the accumulation of passengers in the terminal.
However, from Santa Cruz de la Palma, the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergency Plan Committee (pevolca) warned that the ashes could be extended in the afternoon to Tenerife Sur airport and at night al of La Gomera, before the improvement in The wind regime that is expected for tomorrow.
The emergency authorities and teams of the palm have ruled out that new evacuations are going to be produced after this morning is broken part of the volcano cone and a new lava pouring emerged on the north side of the volcano.
The lava of the new laundry runs along the north side of the volcano slope to an area that was in the exclusion perimeter since experts expected could be produced on that side of the volcano. That is why evacuations are not going to be produced, although the new lava that flows at great speed is already destroying several industrial buildings of the Lagoon polygon.
Since the eruption of the Old Summit volcano occurred Lava castings had always been directed to the west of the island sweeping hundreds of buildings and crops. This morning the Volcano de la Palma has rugged again, expelling large amounts of lava, which has caused a new lava pouring, but this time, on the north side of the volcano, reports Pablo Herráiz.
The lava of this new casting flows at great speed by sweeping everything in its path. At the moment, it has reached the industrial polygon of the lagoon where it is destroying several industrial ships. [Read here the complete information]Date Of Update: 09 October 2021, 11:47
