Lava destroys homes as volcano becomes explosive
"Volcanic monitoring measurements that have been carried out since the eruption began showed the most energetic activity to date on Friday afternoon," said rescue workers.
The volcano has spewed thousands of tons of lava, destroyed hundreds of homes and forced the evacuation of nearly 6,000 people since it erupted last Sunday. With over 83,000 inhabitants, La Palma is part of an archipelago of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic.
On Friday, authorities evacuated the cities of Tajuya, Tacande de Abajo and the part of Tacande de Arriba that had not been evacuated after the new vent in the flank of the volcano had opened.
No deaths or serious injuries were reported when the volcano erupted, but around 15% of the island's economically important banana crop could be at risk, putting thousands of jobs at risk.
