Lava Flows Remain 'Large and Fluid' on Spain's La Palma Island

Lava flows from Spain’s Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island La Palma remained “large in volume and very fluid” on October 31 despite a decrease in the regularity of seismic activity, officials said.

Footage taken by the Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (Involcan) shows lava flows and eruptive activity throughout the day.

More than 2,700 buildings on the island had been destroyed by lava by October 31, according to the European Union’s Copernicus Emergency Management Service. Credit: Involcan via Storyful
