The approximately 5,000 people who have been evacuated since Sunday, September 20 in La Palma.
This was following the volcanic eruption of ‘Old Summit’ observe with “uncertainty” as the lava slung discurre west of La Palma, the way from the coast of Los Llanos de Aridane and Tazacorte.
A neighbor of Las Manchas, whose house is in the “zero zone” of the eruption, just a kilometer and a half said:
“We don’t know how long we have to be out or how long the volcano is going to last, and you can’t stop it, you eat everything.”
He claims that despite everything, they had the cars, documentation and bags prepared because his parents already lived the eruptions of the Teneguía and San Juan were convinced that “it was going to happen”, and although it is “impressive and pretty” to see the erupting volcano, he regrets that “it has done a lot of wrecks”, with many affected homes. “It hasn’t gotten to me but to other relatives yes,” he indicates.
In front of those who highlight the goodness of the geological or tourist eruption, she points out that the palm men see her “otherwise” because they “affect them full” and on top of that it is not known when it will end.
According to reports, the volcano is very active tonight, September 20 as there are reports that new fissures with volcanic activity have opened on the island.
Houses continue to burn as the lava continues to move through villages towards the sea.
