Lava cascades from La Palma volcano as Spain promises help
Al Jazeera, 04 Oct 2021
The Spanish government has pledged $239m to help the island of La Palma recover from the devastation brought by its erupting volcano. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez made the commitment on Sunday during a visit to the island.
The Cumbre Vieja volcano continues to spew red-hot lava and thick clouds of black smoke more than two weeks after it began erupting - and officials say the explosive activity has intensified.
