Continued observation of geological activity as La Palma government organises the return or relocation of the population and reduction of the exclusion zone around the eruptive centre

Data type: Official statement
Groups: Exclusion zone

The Maritime Captaincy defines the new exclusion zone half a nautical mile from the coast between La Bombilla and San Borondón. In addition, this exclusion area could be adjusted again once a new bathymetry is carried out by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography. With this reduction, fishing activity in the area can be reactivated since the new delimitation only affects demersal fishing (Gobierno de Canarias, 2022).
