SPAIN VOLCANO – La Palma volcano shows no sign of abating two months after eruption

Spain, UK

The eruption of the La Palma volcano hit the two-month mark on Friday, during which time flows of lava have covered an area equivalent to 1,400 soccer fields, engulfing everything in their path from houses to banana plantations, a staple of the Canary Island’s economy.

Around 7,000 islanders remain in temporary accommodation as the volcano shows no sign of abating. The rivers of lava pouring down from the Cumbre Vieja ridge have destroyed 1,467 buildings, including nearly 1,200 homes, according to Catastro, a state property register.  EFE
