The tv footage is quite spectacular and some houses have already been buried under the lava flow…
El Pais in English has some good information…

Here is a video of the lava flowing over houses and down roads… It is quite stunning in its destruction… Over 200 houses now buried but it hasnt reached the sea yet.September 22, 2021 at 11:25 am #1028Carl
As mentioned, the tv coverage is everywhere but I found this great map of the evolution of the current eruption and also all the earthquakes…September 24, 2021 at 11:37 am #1045Rachel
And now volcano tourism!
Volcano tourists’ cause congestion on La Palma, with plane tickets going for as much as €500!
“Our associates in La Palma have said to us that a lot of tourists are arriving, mostly coming from other islands,” explains Juan Pablo González, the manager of Ashotel, a hospitality association serving the Canary Islands, which are a Spanish archipelago located in the Atlantic Ocean off the northwestern coast of Africa.
“They are coming with the simple aim of seeing the volcano,” he explains. “Now is not the moment for tourism for La Palma, it’s the time to help, and these people are not doing that and are instead occupying beds that could, for example, be used by the security forces.”October 19, 2021 at 8:31 am #1090Rachel
30 days and its still blowing out larvae and ash like the first day…. Interesting to see that the tourist board for La Palma released a statement saying that only 6 percent of the island is affected and that the rest of the island is open for business as normal!
There are even tour companies no providing organised day trips. “Excursiones relámpago a La Palma para ver el VOLCÁN”
