▪ La novedad es que está girando hacia el norte, hacia la zona industrial de ‘Callejón de La Gata’ en los Llanos de Aridane.

Meanwhile, the lava flow has accelerated in the descent from the Mountain of Tres Picos in Tazacorte, after coming down the Pampillo Core and has also buried the La Costa highway, the last connection to the Southwest of the Island from the Aridane Valley.
There are fears that if the lava from the La Palma volcano reaches the sea it will react to create clouds of toxic vapour full of hydrochloric acid.@RLCotterill has the latest.

The streets of La Palma have been stained grey and black for a week due to the ash falling from the Cumbre Vieja volcano, causing serious problems to the citizens and generating a threat for October, when the rains will arrive on the island.
The lava from the La Palma volcano has entered the banana plantation area and has burned plastics from greenhouses and fertilizers (NOT WATER TANKS), creating a toxic cloud. According to authorities the gas is already diluted…
Spain’s Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN) has detected six earthquakes in the area affected by the volcanic eruption of Cumbre Vieja, on La Palma, with a maximum recorded magnitude of 2.9 in a seismic movement that occurred 10 kilometers deep… Is a new vent about to open in the tsunami prone area?
And here another map:
One home in La Palma has been dubbed ‘casa milagro’ (the miracle house) after it managed to narrowly avoid being engulfed buy the lava flow that has so far destroyed more than 590 buildings…
One home on Spain’s island of La Palma is being called a ‘miracle house’ for narrowly avoiding being swallowed by lava. Volcanic eruptions have destroyed at least 200 homes and led to 6,000 evacuations, but somehow this one lucky house was spared. pic.twitter.com/AevthSYHYK
