End of eruption. Pyroclastic activity has ceased but low level seismic events continue.

Since the last statement, a total of 10 earthquakes have been located on the island of La Palma, none of them felt by the population. Magnitudes range from 1.6 to 3.2 (mbLg). The location of the hypocenters continues under the central area of ​​Cumbre Vieja in the same areas as in previous days. 3 shallow earthquakes have been located, 3 earthquakes at depths between 11 and 15km and 4 earthquakes at depths greater than 30km. low-frequency (LP) events continue to be detected in the records of the island’s stations, in addition to localized volcano-tectonic earthquakes. In the last 24 hours, no volcanic tremor has been observed, keeping the seismic noise at levels close to the pre-eruptive period. As the previous day, the network of GNSS permanent stations on the island does not show significant deformations that could be associated with volcanic activity. In view of the calibrated image at 08:49 UTC, no type of emission can be seen. The height of the cone was measured at 1,122 masl (IGN, 2021).

This video taken on the 19th of December shows a survey of the collapsed volcanic tubes, which release gases from the lava flowing beneath. Sourced from IGME (2021).
