In total, some 160 people have been evacuated, most of whom will spend this night in the homes of relatives or friends, 12 at the Teneguía Princess hotel, in Fuencaliente, and another 10 with mobility problems who will be accommodated in the Quartering. Since the eruption began last Sunday, an estimated 6,000 people have been evacuated. PEVOLCA, after the warning of an increase in the intensity of the volcano, had, first decided on confinement but, due to the change in the situation, they proceeded to evacuate (Gobierno de Canarias, 2021).
