20 Dec La Palma eruption update 20th December 2021: Dangerous gas levels registered downstream of the lava flow field
Posted at 08:13h in Day by Day, La Palma, VolcanoStories 0 CommentsVolcanic tremor continues at background levels, with no eruptive activity seen, although a reactivation cannot be ruled out. Rigorous monitoring of gas levels throughout the evacuated zones continues, especially in La Bombilla, Puerto Naos and El Remo, where potentially lethal values have been detected on occasion according to PEVOLCA. However, gas levels improved relative to the 19th and permitted access to the evacuated zones from both the north and south, from the land and the sea. Small pockets of incandescence remain around jameos (areas where the roof of a lava tube has collapsed), although this is related to the cooling process of the lava.
