Lava spreads and prompts confinements which are later lifed as risk reduces.

Since the last statement, a total of 18 earthquakes have been located in the southern part of the island of La Palma, 4 of them felt at low intensity by the population. One of them is located to the west of the island’s coast. Today at 12:06 (UTC), due to the increase in the height reached by the eruptive cloud. IGN has issued a new VONA; the current height of the ash cloud is 5000 m above sea level (IGN, 2021). The lava delta produced by the lava contacting the sea now measured 450 m length x 600 – 800 m width x 24 m depth (GVP, 2021).

This video shows drone imagery of the lava flow that is feeding the lava delta. The lava flow is flanked by banana plantations. Sourced from IGME (2021).
