La Palma volcano: Stunning explosions of red-hot lava after crater collapses

CA, 04 Oct 2021
A river of red-hot lava gushing from the Cumbre Vieja volcano on Spain's La Palma thickened on Monday after the north side of the crater collapsed the previous night, causing spectacular explosions.

Close-up shots showed jet streams of lava from the intensifying volcanic activity after the crater collapse.

Despite the heightened activity, the lava appeared to be following a similar trajectory to previous flows and avoiding areas that have so far been spared, Canary Islands' regional president Angel Victor Torres said.

1:57 Drone footage released by Spain's Superior Council of Scientific Investigations (CSIC) showed hot lava streams continuing to fall from cliffs into the sea and extending the island's surface as the lava hardens when it hits the water.
