La Palma volcano eruption MELTS pipes for water supply – 3,000 people without water – Air quality worsens and leads to more lockdowns

Here's an example of some lapilli stones, particles of molten ash which have been falling from the skies in southern La Palma since Cumbre Vieja began errupting. The clean-up operation continues in full swing in some parts of the island which have been covered in lapilli like the ones in this image

The La Palma volcano eruption continues and doesn’t show signs of stopping soon…

So far more than 3304 hectares have been covered by ash and lava buried about 367.3 hectares. 1005 buildings have been affected of which 880 are completely destroyed. More than 6,000 of La Palma islands’s 85,000 inhabitants have been evacuated.

And there is no signs of decrease right now! Itahiza Domínguez, a specialists in seismology at Spain’s National Geographic Institute (IGNE) believes that there is no way of knowing when Cumbre Vieja will stop emitting magma and gases and as things stand, the volcano could continue errupting for days, weeks or even months.

Bad air quality and lockdowns

The eruption currently worsens and gets more dangerous. The bad air quality prompted authorities to introduced a lockdown (stay at home order) for 3,500 residents (Los Llanos de Aridane and El Paso; San Borondon, Marina Alta, Marina Baja and La Condesa already in lockdown).

People are asked to keep doors and windows closed and to disconnect heating and air conditioning. This emergency measure is due to a meteorological phenomenon that prevents the dispersion of gases and keep them at low levels of the atmosphere (inversion).

The director of the Gran Canaria emergencies team, Federico Grillo, has shared his concerns about the current situation, describing the eruption as an “emergency never seen before.”

Water cut for residents and bananas

The lava from the Cumbre Vieja volcano has melted the only remaining water connection in the lockdown area. Some 3,000 people in Las Hoyas, El Remo, Puerto Naos and La Bombilla run out of water supply.

The breakage of the water pipe also affects the most productive banana farms in the Canary Islands.

The below image was taken on September 30, 2021 and shows you the flow of lava from the volcano erupting on the Spanish island of La Palma.

Meanwhile, many pets have been left stranded and separated from their families since Cumbre Vieja errupted on 19 September as many households forced to quickly evacuate. With that in mind, the Franz Weber Foundation has set up a website, https://animaleslapalma.org which aims to reunite lost pets with their families.

Look at this spectacular smoke ring phenomena in the sky over La Palma. The vortex ring of steam and gas appeared above Cumbre Vieja. Under certain conditions, volcanos can emit smoke and gas rings when emissions are released from a circular vents in short puffs.

Meanwhile, earthquakes remain elevated:

The risk of fires will increase on the island due to extreme temperatures in the next few days. [AS]

  1. Too bad virgins are so hard to find,if they could find even one and toss her in, the volcano would stop immediately.

    • Such a trollish remark you make…But no doubt you are aware!
      . The Media reports “no one has been hurt” by the effects of the activated vo!cano…as if losing ones home and losing access to clean water is not life endangering!! Easy enough to play word games about pagan practices when not the one suffering the loss of a home…or the lbrutal loss of life…
      No, it is neither kind,
      nor intelligent, to blame victims of a stealth USA-HAARP generated attack to create the earthquake that activated the volcano … It was not climate change. It was advanced technology – and likely a practice attempt at what is being planned, -wickedly – against Iran…🙏🏼

    • Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

      —Isaiah 5:20

  2. Wow! no water, and banana trees ruined. What a mess. A new vent opened up too. Time to go fishing far away from the danger zone.
