 The lava comes out of four mouths, it devastates 185 buildings and means inexorably towards the sea

185 buildings, 63 of them homes, have disappeared so far under the lava wall caused by the eruption of the volcano in La Palma. This first estimate of damage, facilitated after the Meeting of the Steering Committee of the Volcanic Emergencies Plan, will increase as the situation is known in allow. The neighbors of this core of the Municipality of Llanos de Aridanelo have evacuated in the morning with the magma in sight and the smoke over their heads.

The lava goes to the surface by four main mouths and is divided into two castings, one of which increases its destructive trail. "He walks inexorably towards the sea," the Autonomous President Ángel Víctor Torres said. And there, in contact with water, it fears that give rise to toxic gases. [All images of the eruption of the volcano]

The great thicknesses of the lava wall that advances towards the sea in the palm, up to 12 meters in some points, could cause in areas of greater slope, the formation of large casting fragments that can be detached from the front and reaching greater distances.

In addition, these lava-front collapses can lead to small pyroplastic flows, the Canary Islands volcanic emergency plan (pevolca) indicated in a note.

The Scientific Committee who advises the crisis cabinet accurate that the lava advances at a speed of 200 meters per hour and that the deformation of the soil in the area close to the eruption of the volcano amounts to 28 centimeters.

The Government, through the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, has established talks with different banking entities so that they provide unoccupied housing to people affected by the Old Summit Volcano on the Canary Island of La Palma.

The government spokesman Isabel Rodríguez commented on Tuesday at the Press Conference after the Council of Ministers that the Executive maintains a "maximum commitment" in this emergency with different actions and revealed two of them thanks to the efforts made by the directed department By Nadia Calviño.

The evacuated neighbors of allow, on the island of La Palma, can re-collect their belongings accompanied by emergency personnel, for which they can go to two close points.

It is the gas station DISA of the lagoon or crossing on the coast of Tazacorte between the lagoon and the coast road, as explained by the president of the Cabildo de la Palma, Mariano Hernández Zapata.

It would be treated, added, that neighbors can collect their "most important" belongings and always before "the road" is collapsed, which is why they should always be accompanied by security forces and safety or emergency bodies.

The lava is being packed in a vague, about three kilometers from the coast, has secured this afternoon in its Twitter account the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda. He recalled that he is expected to touch the sea in the environment of the Beach of Los Guirres, in the vicinity of the Tazacorte port. And he has shown ash images on the deck of salvage boats that control the area forbidden to navigation.

At eight o'clock in the afternoon, local time, people congregate in the church of El Paso, which is on top of a viewpoint. They see the volcano at sunset, when they are more spectacular. And, at the same time, the direct stars of the stars of the TV, reports Gonzalo Suárez.

The Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO, CSIC) will carry out an exhaustive multidisciplinary oceanographic study of the southwest area of the island of La Palma with special attention to the analysis of morphological changes on the seabed, as well as possible gas outings of origin Volcanic or hydrothermal, in addition to studying the effects of casting in the marine ecosystem.

About the 15: 30h of this Tuesday has sailed from the port of Vigo the oceanographic ship Ramón Margalef headed to La Palma to support the study and monitoring of volcanic eruption initiated last Sunday on the island. Scientists will study the arrival at sea of volcanic casting and will obtain samples from the seabed, water and organisms. And on the other hand, they will investigate the possible existence of emission spotlights underwater that could emit gases or lava.

The volcanic activity on the island of La Palma and the progress of Magma maintains the same 6 roads that on Monday cut at different points, has reported on Tuesday the General Traffic Management (DGT).

The affected roads are in the municipalities of El Paso, Los Llanos de Aridane, Tajuya and everything. Specifically, it is the LP-2 between kilometer 38 and 55.4, in its TAJUYA or LP-2132 from kilometer 0 to 3 to the passage through all.

In the plains of Aridane, those affected are the LP-211 between km 0 and 4.7, the LP-213 between 3.3 and 14.2 and LP-215 from its start and even kilometer 4, 36 Finally, the LP-212 is also closed at its passage through the pass from kilometer 0 to 3.3.

The point of reception and valuation of evacuees installed in the Steel Football Field, in the Llanos de Aridane (La Palma) has been transferred to the Camilo León Pavilion, has reported the Canary Islands Emergency Coordinating Center, CECOES-112.

This sports pavilion is located in the same municipal term, just a few minutes walk from the soccer field that until now was being used.

The technical director of the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergencies Plan, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, has pointed out at the meeting committee meeting that at the moment there are two languages or casting: one more north, which is approaching everything, and another further than the south than It has practically no movement.

The report of the Scientific Committee indicates that the eruption continues to show the same fishing erupting style, with the stonbolian mechanism, in a fissure in non-SE direction. The activity is currently concentrated in four erupting centers (mouths), the last of which was opened on Monday at 7:56 p.m. (local time). This new center shows effusive activity and emission of lava casting parallel to the previous castings and is very close to the other assets.

An approximate rate of advance of the front of the lava wash facing 200 meters, continuing its advance towards the sea.

The Steering Committee of the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergencies Plan has reported in the late afternoon that in a first evaluation of the material damages it is estimated that 185 buildings could have been affected, in which 63 would be homes according to the cadastre.

It has been evacuated at the moment to 5,700 people, including 200 of the Tacande performed on Monday night. In the hostels authorized, 132 people remain. In addition, some 400 tourists who were housed in the risk areas were relocated in Tenerife in Tenerife.

Among the population centers affected by evacuations are the light bulb, the rowing, Puerto Naos, the spots, Jedey, Green Charco, the puddle, allow, the Laguna, San Nicolás and Tacande from above to Echowey, of the municipalities of the Plains of Aridane, El Paso and Tazacorte.

In total, 750 troops work in this plan for security in La Palma, together with the town halls.

The Interior Minister, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, has visited the Advanced Command Stall on Tuesday located in the Visitor Center of the Caldera de Taburiente, in El Paso, which has been displaced by volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma.

Specifically, 800 people from all administrations integrate the civil protection device that has been deployed in the area, has reported the ministry through social networks.

The Bishop of Tenerife, Bernardo Álvarez, will celebrate this Wednesday along with the priests of the island of La Palma, a Mass at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Las Nieves, the Insular Patron, to beg'lles Eruption of the volcano ".

"Tomorrow we are going to have a celebration with the Bishop and the participation of all the priests, a rogaton Eucharist for the eruption of the volcano, we also have to thank God because until now there has been no victim", explained the Rector of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Las Nieves, Antonio Hernández, in statements to Europe Press.

Thus, they will ask so that there is no personal harm "and that the material damage is the least", as it has specified the priest. However, he acknowledges that lava continues to advance and that religious objects and objects from some parish closest to the volcano before the magma advance have been retired. This was counted in this chronicle titled "We only have to pray" Gonzalo Suárez and Alberto di Lolli, special envoys from the world to La Palma.

The useful agrarian surface that will be devastated by the lava of the old summit volcano on the Canary Island of La Palma will be around 400 hectares, of which about 300 belong to platnera, according to a projection map prepared by the Agrarian Coag Canary Organization.

According to data provided to EFE, the second surface most affected directly by the Magma will be dedicated to vineyard, with about 60 hectares, while the Avocado area devastated will be about 21 hectares. There will also be small terrains affected from fallow, subtropical, potato, papaya, pastures or citrus. The projection also estimates that lava swept, on its way to the sea, some 230 hectares of unused agricultural surface.

At first time, the Canary Islands Volcanological Institute has shown a thermal image that shows where the lava tongues arise and advance.

The public health inspection of the Health Area of La Palma has reinforced the monitoring of water quality of human consumption in areas adjacent to that affected by eruption. In the municipalities of Tazacorte, the plains of Aridane and El Paso are taking place daily controls of water quality and storage and distribution infrastructures. In this regard, public health inspectors work in coordination with municipalities and managing companies.

The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands has reported on the afternoon of this Tuesday that "the water consumption of the Support network is today totally safe and continues vigilant, so that there is any eventuality, the population It would be informed immediately. "

The leash contact of the old summit volcano (the palm) with the sea will produce toxic gases and harmful particles, according to a specialist in volcanic degassing. For that risk, the Government of the Canary Islands has asked the curious who do not approach the area and has decreed a "2-mile nautical exclusion radius" around the site where the lava tongues are expected to arrive.

When lava, cast rock to more than 1,000 degrees Celsius, meets the sea (close to 20-25 degrees in this case) several phenomena are given, as explained Patrick Allard, Research Director of the French Institute of Geophysics of the globe, from Paris.

The first thing that occurs is "a brutal vaporization of sea water, as if you will cast water to a hot pan." Nothing serious, in principle. But this interaction can be explosive when the lava pouring creates seawater bags, which come into pressure "as in a pot" and make them explode pieces of laundry, "producing magma chips". In addition to the risk for people who are close to this type of explosions, these "lava chips", which are like crystals, travel by air and are deposited on Earth, and can be toxic to animals.

These toxic clouds may also contain hydrochloric acid aerosols since the sea water is rich in chlorine, thanks to the sea salt (containing sodium chloride). After the decomposition of water in vaporization, oxygen and hydrogen are released, and the latter is associated with chlorine. That is why "the clouds created by the interaction between marine water and lava are acidic," adds Allard. The clouds "can be dangerous if one is too close", alert him.

The advance of the most active lava wash towards the sea has been slowing down from Monday. If that day was spoken of an advance of 700 meters at an hour, at noon of this Tuesday, the president of the Canary Islands has referred to 200 meters per hour and the Technical Director of the Volcanic Emergency Plan of that Community, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, what It has reduced about 120 meters per hour. Keep in mind that this advance is slowed down if you find obstacles such as, for example, some inhabited nuclei that the magmatic mantle has devastated it.

Well, this monitoring shared by the National Geographic Institute shows how, until mid afternoon, the lava had traveled something more than half the distance between the volcano and the coast.

The Parliamentary Group VOX has registered in the Congress of the Deputies a proposition of no law for discussion in the full chamber's full by which it asks the Government urgent measures and exceptional aid and resort to international financing to alleviate the damages caused by the Eruption of the old summit volcano on the Canary Island of La Palma.

The registered initiative urges the Government to declare area affected seriously by an emergency of civil protection in the municipalities affected by the eruption of the Old Summit Volcano on the Island of La Palma. In addition, it raises that if the requirements of the European Regulation are met, aid is requested from the Solidarity Fund of the European Union, which are made available to the States to compensate for the losses and damage caused by the volcanic eruption suffered on the island of the Palm and its consequences.

Precisely, from La Palma, the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has announced this Tuesday that the Council of Ministers has initiated the procedures to approve this declaration.

Congress and the Senate have approved on Tuesday, institutional statements of identical content in which, in addition to showing their solidarity towards all those affected by volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma, ask the Government and all institutions to provide them with support Economical and show their "recognition" to public employees who are "on the front line" working to protect the inhabitants of the island.

Specifically, the two legislative chambers urge the Executive and institutions to "continue deploying the maximum effort to help affected citizenship" since "as soon as possible" can receive economic support "in order to alleviate the consequences of volcanic eruption ".

The Ministry of Social Rights, Equality, Diversity and Youth of the Government of the Canary Islands will streamline the processing of the 140 new requests and 41 renovations of the Canarian Insertion (PCI) provision corresponding to the island of La Palma.

This announcement was made by the counselor of the area, Naomi Santana, during the course of a meeting, among others, with his homolog of the Cabildo, Nieves María Hernández, to address what steps can be carried out to support The citizenship of the island affected by the eruption of the volcano

The counselor also talked with the evacuees who are at this time in the aquacodes the Fort of Breña Low, who presented the commitment to find a more suitable solution to face the days that must go outside their homes. She in turn, she presented them that the department that she directs will prioritize the resolution of social benefits that are requested in La Palma.

Through his Twitter account, the Cabildo de la Palma has remembered this afternoon how citizens should act if volcanic ashes begin to fall on them. The message recommends covering the water containers, do not leave food to the weather, close doors and windows, leave only with protected nose and mouth and not do physical exercise outdoors.

To those advice, health counseling adds another very graph: "It's not time for selfies"

The Lanzarote Cabildo, through the Safety and Emergency Consortium, will send in the next hours a human and material team to the Island of La Palma to join the emergency device deployed in that place on the occasion of the volcanic eruption that occurred Last Sunday in the old summit area.

Specifically, the team that will send is formed by a corporal and three firefighters, as well as two vehicles, a BUP (heavy urban pump) and a rosemary, a lightweight intervention vehicle that will work "elbow with elbow" with the troops and means of Tenerife and Gran Canaria to stifle the ravages of the volcano and the sea of lava that "is sweeping with everything, homes, cultivation areas and other infrastructures", as reported by the insular institution in press release.

The University of La Laguna (ULL) has decided to postpone its solemn act of opening of the course 2021-2022, scheduled for the next Friday, for solidarity with the situation lived on the island of La Palma due to the volcanic eruption and until the emergency Be more controlled.

The teaching and researcher center is especially sensitive with this situation given that many people from the university community are Oriques of La Palma and, in addition, maintains a headquarters on the island where nursing studies are taught, with the support of Insular Cabildo. Additionally, the presence of the president of the Government of the Canary Islands, which by protocol should be the one who opens the course on behalf of his Majesty the king, was not

The Association of Autonomous Workers (ATA) will meet this Wednesday with the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration to request the Government of an "urgent and extraordinary aid" for the autonomous affected by the eruption of the volcano in La Palma.

The President of ATA, Lorenzo Amor, will ask the Executive that aids cover the victims both "directly and indirectly by the evictions and losses of their activities," he has published on Tuesday on his Twitter account.

"We will request an urgent and extraordinary aid from the cessation of activity, similar to the start-up between March and June 2020," he has expressed love in his message.

The 'seismic swarm' that began in La Palma almost two weeks ago and led to a volcanic eruption last Sunday accumulates more than 26,000 earthquakes, almost 1,600 of them located, according to the last report of the Canary Islands Volcanological Institute (Involcan) . The phenomenon began detecting on Saturday, September 11.

The maximum magnitude has been 4.2 on the Richter scale in an earthquake located last Sunday. In recent years, the Old Summit volcano has experienced 10 seismic swarms including the latter, with one in 2017, 1 in 2018, 5 by 2020 and 3 in 2021.

A rain of ashes falls on the shoulders of Gilberto Pérez while running through the courtyard and the six rooms of his house. He has to choose, in a matter of minutes, what is taken and what he leaves behind. Meanwhile, the lava tongue slides inclemently. This is how this chronicle of Gonzalo Suárez and Alberto di Lolli from La Palma.

Lava has already entered the town of Equalque, a town, already evicted, of about 1,200 inhabitants, in the Municipality Palmero de los Llanos de Aridane, at a speed of about 120 meters per hour, so the arrival of magma up The sea could take much more than expected.

The technical director of the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergencies Plan (pevolca), Miguel Ángel Morcuende, has explained this noon that the estimation of the Scientific Committee is that lava advances about 120 meters per hour, and not at 700 who calculated the technicians of Involcan This morning, the president of the Canary Islands has spoken of "about 200 meters per hours"

Morcuende has detailed that the lava that mana from the volcano runs through two languages, one of which, the southwest, on the spots, has "a minimum movement", just about 2 meters per hour, and the scientific committee of the pebolca " Doubt "that he is going to reactivate.

The other is the one that advances inexorably hillside, and that has already entered everything, in the municipality of Los Llanos de Aridane. It is also fed by the new mouth that was opened at night this Monday and forced the eviction of the Tacande neighbors, in El Paso. Morcende has explained that the magma that comes out of this new mouth is more fluent and "fewer difficulties move" is finding it, because it does it on the laundry coming from the main cone.

The Government of Spain, the Canary Islands and the Cabildo of La Palma have asked the population to be refraved on Tuesday to circulate along the roads close to the volcano and approach the lava castings because "the situation is not much less secure "As the appearance showed last night a new mouth of eruption at 900 meters from the main one.

"We ask for their safety and for emergency teams to play their work," said the president of the Cabildo de la Palma, Mariano Hernández Zapata, in a message that they have seconded, at his side, the president of the government, Pedro Sánchez, and the president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres.

The three administrations have pointed out several points that concern them: the eruption area, in one whose surroundings it was necessary to evacuate another town, Tacande, because another eruptive mouth arose from suddenly; The different castings that devastate everything in its path and, in the next few hours, their arrival at sea.

The president of the Canary Islands has remarked that that moment will be "critical" because the entrance into the salt water of a lava tongue to a thousand degrees of temperature causes dangerous evaporation gases.

The director of the Institute of Canarias (Involcan), Nemesio Pérez, has affirmed this Tuesday that no lava emission points appear in the area. Thus, he has explained that "an important surface seismicity" that can generate new eruptive mouths, no fissures, because the fissure was already opened last Sunday when the eruption began.

The expert has indicated that the eruption "follows its course within normal behavior," but the difference with other eruptions is that this case is in an inhabited area.

In addition, it has indicated that it is not important at what concrete lava reach the sea, since nothing should occur when it is established a security perimeter.

The Minister of Agriculture, Fishing and Food, Luis Flat, has insured this Tuesday that the Government of Spain will "be necessary" to help affected farmers and repair the damage caused by the eruption of the volcano in La Palma, a fact It has qualified as "catastrophe" and whose consequences "you have to repair".

In the same way, it has confirmed that there may be some banana surfaces and affected vineyards although, with the advance of the lava tongue, it is not yet the time to make an assessment. The Minister has pronounced in these terms in statements to the media at the headquarters of the Intellectual Property Office of the European Union (EUIPO), in Alicante, where he has appeared along with the Commissioner of the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries of the European Union , Virgilijus Sinkevicius.

Ángel Víctor Torres, president of the Canary Islands, recalled that the lava walks "inexorably towards the sea" and "nothing can be done to prevent it" since it goes "about 200 meters per hour". In any case, he has remembered that "the best news is that you do not have to regret personal damage."

Torres has revealed that he has already been interested in aid that can come from the European Union for the reconstruction of the island. "When all this ends, we aspire to get the necessary funds and that the EU collaborates with the reconstruction of the island," she sentenced.

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has appeared again on Tuesday at the press conference from La Palma and has insisted that the inhabitants and tourists of La Palma must "try to avoid proximity to the magma and the volcano and leave the roads More unobstructed as possible because there is still a risk of evacuation. " The president has remembered that "the emergency continues" and will not end until the island of La Palma can "return to normal".

The Council of Ministers has launched the Declaration of La Palma on Tuesday as an emergency zone of civil protection before the ravages that volcanic eruption is causing, has announced the president of the government, Pedro Sánchez.

The Government has activated the insurance compensation consortium to make available to those affected by the Palma Volcano a free phone and a web page where they can streamline the processing of the damage caused by volcanic eruption.

The European Commission has "funds available" to alleviate agricultural, fishing and environmental consequences as a result of the eruption of the volcano in La Palma and provided that the Spanish Government requests it. This has been ensured on Tuesday, the Commissioner of Environment, Oceans and EU Fishing, the Lithuanian Virginijus Sinkevicius, which has affirmed that in Brussels they are "more than willing to offer the funds available" when asked by the Sánchez Executive.

The stromboli volcano, located on the Eolias Islands, in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea, serves as a global terminology to describe the eruptions that are characterized by rhythmic explosive phases (with periods of variable extension calm). In the Old Summit volcano, in La Palma, something similar is happening.

The Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, has apologized on Tuesday for his first statements after the volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma, when linking it with a tourist attraction, and has said that "now it's time to support" Island and its inhabitants.

Thus, Maroto has regretted his first statements "who have been able to offend the feeling in La Palma and palmers."

"I sympathize with the so dramatic situation that exists on the island," he added, and then underline that "there will be time to talk about tourism and how to recover the repositioning" of the palm. In addition, Maroto has pointed out that "you have to know how to rectify when one is wrong" and ensures that "all criticism admits."

The upper center of scientific research (CSIC) has deployed its research teams to study the eruption of the Palm Volcano. There they will perform chemical analysis tasks, measurement of gases and eruptive samples, aerial surveillance and evaluation of the impact of eruption in biodiversity.

The Government, through the First Vice Presidency of Economic Affairs, has maintained talks with the banking entities so that they make available to the people affected by the eruption of the volcano in La Palma the properties that have gaps, so that they can be employed To accommodate these people. Informa Raúl Piña in the world.

Meteored meteorologists have ruled out that the current eruptive process on the old summit, on the island of La Palma, can cause acid rain when the lava comes in contact with the sea and ensure that its impact on the climate will be on a local scale but not to A global scale.

"In principle, the theme of acid rain is not today a cause for concern, it is the presence of a high content of toxic gases," the meteorologist José Miguel Viñas has been affirmed during a virtual meeting organized by meteored To analyze the meteorological situation during this autumn.

The expert has explained that when lava, which is 1,000 degrees, comes into contact with coastal water "there will be a quite important emission of toxic gases, such as sulfur dioxide."

The President of the Government of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has announced that the Executive is going to welcome the solidarity funds of the European Union (EU) to start reconstruction in the palm when the emergency ended by volcanic eruption.

In statements to journalists after meeting telematics with the European Commissioner of Cohesion and Reforms, Elisa Ferreira, the President has commented that the autonomous communities that are the ultra-peripheral region, the case of the Canary Islands, can request resources if the damage amounts to 1% of the GDP, about 400 million, "and it is evident that they will be superior."

He has said that Canarias will be able to opt for a percentage to "alleviate" the losses on the island and will be guided to the replacement of public infrastructures such as roads, colleges, water networks and even provisional accommodations, given that there are many families that have run out of housing . "It's what most worries us now," she said.

The lava from the old summit volcano in the palm swepts with everything in its path. After the opening of a new mouth last night, which caused more evacuations, the lava has followed its way to the sea. A road in which the town of Allow is located, about to be devastated by the volcano. It is a matter of hours to disappear this nucleus that is part of the plains of Aridane.

The lava tongue is located at 50 meters from allow. The ashes do not stop falling and the neighbors are hurrying the last minutes to recover all the follows they can before going to leave them at a garage.

"It looks like a pig loading things like that, I do not know if it's worth risking life for saving your furniture," Hilberto sentence, one of all neighbors, who tries to save everything he can from his house before lava the Engage [Read here the complete information]

The Etna Volcano, on the Italian Island of Sicily (South), has experienced a new eruption in its southeast crater, with emission of ash and lava, while increasing the amplitude of volcanic tremors, reported the National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology Italian (IngV).

The volcanic activity began around 6.15 local hours (4.15 GMT), with the emission of ash and 40 minutes later, the resumption of the Surmombolian activity was observed in the Southeast Crater, the most active in the latest ethnic rashes.

The eruptive cloud produced by the current activity has reached a height of 9 kilometers, being visible from the localities of Catania and Taormina, and, according to the forecasting model, it dissipates in this northeast direction.

The kings will visit this Thursday the area affected by the eruption of the Volcano de la Palma to learn first hand the security device and keep meetings with the affected neighbors, according to sources of the king's house.

In the visit, the kings will also meet with the government authorities of the Canary Islands and the Cabildo of La Palma, as well as those responsible for the security forces of the State and Civil Protection that are working on the ground.

Felipe VI on Monday transmitted a message of encouragement to all the people affected by the eruption of the volcano and showed his gratitude to all the members of the emergency services that are attending evacuees.

The Spanish bishops have been "overwhelmed" by the eruption of the Old Summit Volcano, on the Island of La Palma, and have ensured their help to the Christian community there.

"We are overwhelming, the Christian community of La Palma is also living with pain all this event, give us data that the Christian community has become launched to welcome all those who have lost their home," explained the bishop. Assistant from Madrid, José Cobo, on Tuesday during a press conference.

The president of the Cabildo de la Palma, Mariano Hernández, has assured in an interview in RTVE that houses destroyed by the eruption of the Old Summit Volcano so far are more than 150 and that of continuing the lava with the current route this figure " It could duplicate or triple. "

"We are greatly concerned about the authorities the situation on its way to the coast, which is very close to a neighborhood with a population superior to the thousand people, in everything," he said.

"We are going to have piroclasts over several square kilometers. That is poverty; nothing is going to be cultivated," the Vulcanologist José Mangas said in an interview. "From the six historical eruptions of La Palma in the twentieth century there were two, one lasted 25 days and the other, 33 days. This is going to be horrible, it is a natural catastrophe," he added.

According to sleeves, "when the launder arrives, it reaches the sea, if it arrives, because it is increasingly slow, it will be produced an evaporation of the water from the sea, with impressive water vapor clouds, but toxic gases are also produced because the Sea water is not pure. It has chlorine, sulfur, carbon and are going to form sulfhydric acids, hydrochloric acids, carbonated acids, CO2, are going to form a lot of toxic gases.

"This is not a joke, it's very beautiful for a geologist like me, but he has a tremendous risk, there's going to be a poverty on the island of La Palma and there's going to be a number of people affected, who do not know",, it is finished.

The lava of the volcano that has occurred in the municipality of El Paso, on the island of La Palma, is approaching in the last hours of the urban nucleus of allotque, the town of Los Llanos de Aridane that is located southwest of the insular territory of the Known as a beautiful island.

This has been confirmed by Declarations to Europe Press The Mayor of Los Llanos de Aridane, Noelia García, who has admitted that the arrival of lava to the urban nucleus of allow is currently "imminent risk".

The appearance last night of a new volcanic mouth in the vicinity of the town of Tacande, in El Paso, has forced emergency services to expand the evacuations and has slowed down the progress of lava castings to the sea, its natural output .

The new volcanic mouth has arisen 900 meters from the main and in the same location where at first time of yesterday, an earthquake of magnitude 4.1 was recorded, the largest of those who have taken place in the area from the beginning From the eruption, at 15.13 hours last Sunday.

In addition, the National Geographic Institute has located three seismic movements in La Palma during the morning of this Tuesday, one of which has been magnitude 3.2 and a kilometer deep, in the municipality of El Paso.

The Insular Aguas Council and the Government of the Canary Islands prepare a contingency plan to the possible condition of the irrigated water system by the eruption of the Old Summit Volcano, one of the main concerns of farmers and farmers since the lava is close to The hydraulic infrastructures of the Aridane Valley.

This was why it was remembered at last time at the meeting of the Special Civil Protection Plan and Emergency Attention Plan (pevolca), which was also found that for now basic services, telecommunications and electric laying they work with normal.

The traffic light remains red, in an emergency situation, and the eruptive process continues and in fact, at the late afternoon of the afternoon of this Monday a new eruptive mouth was recorded 900 meters from the main one, which has forced the preventive eviction Of the neighbors of Tacande, upcoming to the area, in the municipality of El Paso.

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, will meet at 11.00 - Local Canaria - to the Scientific Committee meeting at the Insular Accommodation and then later participate, at 12.00, in the Special Civil Protection Plan and Attention Committee of emergencies due to volcanic risk (pevolca).

These meetings consist of the Agenda of the President, according to the Moncloa, for the third day of Sánchez in La Palma, where he moved on Sunday to follow the evolution of events after registered volcanic eruption in La Palma.

It is expected that the head of the executive undertakes trip to the United States in the next few hours for Wednesday, to participate in advance at the United Nations General Assembly.

The Canary Islands Volcanological Institute (Involcan) has carried out new measures to evaluate and monitor the amount of sulfur dioxide (SO2) issued to the atmosphere by the current erupting process in the old summit, on the island of La Palma.

The results obtained for this second day of eruption reflect an emission rate of SO2 between 7,997 and 10,665 tonnes per day, assuming that wind speed at 3,000 meters on yesterday has been between 4.2 and 5.5 meters per second (meteorological data provided by the AEMET).

The estimate has been made after performing several measurements of measurements with a remote optical sensor, minido-type, both in the area, with the instrumentation mounted on one of the helicopters of the Civil Guard in Tenerife) as in the terrestrial mobile position (with The minidas mounted on one of the vehicles of the ITER / Involcan).

The stromboli volcano, located on the Eolias Islands, in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea, serves as a global terminology to describe the eruptions that are characterized by rhythmic explosive phases (with periods of variable extension calm). In Old Summit, the palm, something similar is happening. At 15.12 hours on Sunday the Magma began to break through the crust in the form of a lava freezing gas. The questions about how the event originated and its subsequent development have in vilo the population. But, how can it affect that the eruption is of a stonbolin type?

"The volcanic buildings that are formed are usually more or less small. This type of model is characterized by not being excessively explosive or presenting large lava flows," explains the world José Luis Barrera, Vulcanologist of the Official College of Geologists. It is called building to the accumulation of volcanic products (fluid lavas, lapillis and ash) by the succession of eruptive episodes. These present a conical shape, can count on different heights and are located around a central hole or eruptive mouth, which will work as the output duct of the materials. The more they are believed and larger, the greater power will have this output. "The cones that are also formed are medium or small," says the expert in telephone conversation.

The Minister of Science and Innovation, Diana Morant, has guaranteed that "the only priority" for the government in the emergency caused by the eruption of the Palma Volcano is "safeguarding the life of people", after the Minister of Industry and tourism, Reyes Marotabogase for using the "wonderful spectacle" of the volcano as a tourist claim, statements that subsequently nuanced.

"What I was trying to say the minister (Kings Maroto) is that we are a land with a geographical diversity, which we have the volcanoes, and that this will leave images for history," Morant said in an interview in TVE in which He has assured that "Of course, the government is focused on the emergency and minister (Maroto) as well."

The person responsible for science has indicated that the Executive "now deals with the emergency and then discussed the Postemergency," and has alluded to the President's commitment, Pedro Sánchez, "to be with the families and with all those who are going to lose Your houses, see how this material damage is going to be repaired and how it can be helped. "

According to the information received by the Director Committee of the Special Protection Plan against the Canary Islands Volcanic Risk (Pevolca), the new Boca del Volcano has been opened at about 900 meters from the main one, so the population has been asked to He also moves away from that place.

The opening last night from a new mouth of the eruption was accompanied by a seismic movement of 3.8 located in Tazacorte at a zero depth.

Faced with the appearance of this new eruptive mouth, the Cabildo of the Palm has determined the closure of several roads (LP 211 ALLOWER; LP-212 TACONE; LP-213 NAOS PORT; LP-215 Tazacorte-La Laguna; LP 2 at height of Tajuya and restrictions on the LP-3 the summit).

The Government of the Canary Islands is already worked on a draft Decree Law to be able to recalize the necessary land and "urgently and immediacy" the houses or facilities that have been affected by volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma. This has been announced by the president of the Canaries, Ángel Víctor Torres.

In his speech, Ángel Víctor Torres assured that the most important thing at this time is "to take care of security" and that "all mechanisms and aid" are arbitrated by public administrations. For this reason, since the Government is already working, "urgently", in this draft Decree Law because "there will be important damage in the homes and the properties of the neighbors, which have been affected by the arrival of The castings ".

Professor of Geomorphology and Geological Risks from the University of Salamanca, Pablo Gabriel Silva Barroso analyzes from the geological point of view the eruption of the old summit volcano.

The researcher who has participated in more than 150 publications between books and international scientific journals explains how the geological DNA of the palm (and also of iron) marks volcanic eruptions: it is part of the 'growth' process of the youngest islands of Canary Islands.

The lava launched by volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma, in the Canary Islands, covers 103 hectares of land and has destroyed 166 homes and other properties.

This calculation has made the Emergency Satellite Program of the European Union Copernicus, which has published an image taken by Sentinel 2 satellite and that reflects the situation at 7:50 p.m. on Monday.

The island of La Palma, in full volcanic eruption, has registered four small earthquakes overnight, of which at least two have been a sense on the part of its population, has reported the National Geographic Institute (IGN).

The first earthquake of 21.32 (Canarian hour), from which there were changes in its registration at first, reached a magnitude of 3.8 and was felt in the plains of Aridane, Tazacorte, Windward, El Paso, Breña Alta and Breña Low, Fuencaliente, Los Canaria, Villa de Mazo, San José and Santa Cruz de la Palma.

The other seismion has been magnitude 3 at 6.06 (Canarian hour), 1 kilometer deep, and has become present in large part of the plains of Aridane and El Paso.

The European Union (EU) has activated its Copernic satellite system to follow volcanic eruption on the Canary Island of La Palma, and the European Commission is already in contact with the Spanish authorities to offer additional support, the president of the Community Executive, Ursula von der Leyen.

"We are with all people in the Canary Islands before the eruption of the volcano in La Palma (...) We are in contact with the Spanish authorities to provide additional support if necessary," said on Twitter Von der Limen, which is in New York to attend the UN General Assembly.

Von Der Leyen undertook that the EU will help the palm to alleviate the effects of volcanic eruption that began yesterday, through the activation of the European civil protection mechanism and also with "mid-term" aid to collaborate in the Reconstruction of damaged areas.

A dozen operators, heattered in orange reflective vests, work in a hurry in mid-afternoon. They load about their shoulders dozens of virgins, crucifixes, chandeliers, missales, chalices, religious paintings ... in just 20 minutes, all the content of the hermitage of Saint Pius X, in allow, ends up stacked in four vans, which come out at all Speed to a safe place.

The objective: to save the content of the temple of the black lava tongue that already appears less than a kilometer away. [Read here the complete information]

The Ministry of Education of the Government of the Canary Islands maintains the suspension "Until new notice" of the teaching activity in the educational centers of El Paso, Los Plains of Aridane and Tazacorte, in La Palma, after the eruption of the Old Summit Volcano.

In a broad statement tonight, Education recalls that Sunday decided to suspend classes following the recommendations of the Scientific Committee of the Special Plan for the Volcanic Risk of Canarias (pevolca).

"And it will continue to apply until new notice in the 20 teaching centers of these three Palmeros municipalities. Its continuity is conditioned by the evolution of the eruption began on Sunday afternoon in the cow head area," he adds.

An earthquake of magnitude 4.1 has shaken the palm tonight, with an epicenter in the southeast of the municipality of Tazacorte and focus three kilometers deep, according to the National Geographic Institute. The tremor has been registered at 21.32, Canarian time, and it has been possible to feel in several municipalities on the island. It is the greatest earthquake that is recorded on the island since Sunday when a 38 earthquake preceded in a few hours at the beginning of the eruption (15.13 hours).

Likewise, the Water Movement in the volcanic eruption of La Palma has slowed in the last hours, so it has finally not reached the sea during this morning, at first, it had been pointed out, according to the director of the Volcanic Risk Prevention Plan of Canaries, pevolca, Miguel Ángel Morcuende. This does not mean, he has clarified, that the eruption has diminished its activity and must be found in the next few hours if this reduction is a trend or not.

The technicians have explained that the lava continues to fall into the height of the all-off core filling spaces and at some points it overflows but at a lower speed of the planned so it has not reached the coast during the night as expected.
