La Palma island’s volcano roars again, spewing thicker lava


LOS LLANOS DE ARIDANE, Canary Islands – A volcano that has already destroyed nearly 1,000 buildings on a Spanish island increased its explosive power Tuesday, spewing thicker lava out of its main vent. A video released by the institute the night before showed a block of molten rock that, according to the institute, had hit against a wall more than 0.7 miles away from the vent. According to Involcan’s calculatio­ns, the volcano has emitted at least 250,000 tons of sulfur dioxide and 35 million cubic meters of magma.
