La Palma volcano: 6,000 people evacuated as lava nears sea



Thousands of people have been forced from their homes after a volcanic eruption on the Spanish island of La Palma.

Emergency crews are working around the clock to help people retrieve their belongings and evacuate quickly. About 6,000 people of the 80,000 people living on the island have been evacuated since Sunday.

During the night between Tuesday and Wednesday, the Canary Islands’ vulcanology institute said the amplitude of the volcano’s seismic activity intensified.

Experts say that if and when the lava reaches the sea, it could trigger more explosions and clouds of toxic gases. Marine authorities are keeping a two nautical mile area in the sea around the area closed as a precaution.

  1. Are you ready for a flood now? Still want to practice pre-tribulation? You all should have realized after reading Torah that we were created by a superior race of beings and that this is a replication centre for organic technologies. Do you think just one being created us? Of course HE gets ultimate recognition, but Genesis 1:26. Man: a self replicating organic technology that became self aware. Science deniers do not see the connection to them and our purpose as A.I. for the Emperium.

  2. If you listen closer to that "Expert" you would realize he is just saying Words he is not informing you of anything… It's just word salad.

  3. “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.”
    ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:2-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  4. Unnecessary attempt at sensationalism by the news media. This really is a well behaved volcano compared to many. Not one life lost – plenty of warning, plenty of time and well co-ordinated evacuations.
