The Cumbre Vieja volcano registered 319 earthquakes in a single day on Thursday. This is the highest number of earthquakes in 24 hours since the beginning of the eruption on September 19, 2021. Most of the 300+ earthquakes occurred at a depth of between 10 and 15 kilometres in Mazo and Fuencaliente on the island of La Palma.
A M5.1 earthquake, the largest since the beginning of the eruption exactly two months ago, hit Villa del Mazo, La Palma early Friday morning.
The deep earthquake (37 kilometers deep) was felt on several neighboring islands like Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hierro.

It released very fluid lava, that reactivated lava flow 3 (feeds the lava deltas that were created since September 28) and 11 (from Montaña Rajada to the north of Montaña Cogote).
The third flow, the most dangerous, is running at 20 meters per hour through an area that has not already been affected until now, destroying new homes and farms.
Desborde en la erupción de #LaPalma
Se ha formado lago de lava en el punto emisor intermedio entre la boca inferior de coladas de lava y el cráter superior que emite siempre cenizas.
Finalmente ha desbordado sobre el que emite coladas hacia el oeste

The new overflow has formed a lava lake at the intermediate emission point between the lower mouth of lava flows and the upper crater that always emits ashes. Yes! the eruption is clearly not calming down!

The volcanic plume reaches a height of about 3,500 meters and drifts to the east and southeast, which could hinder air traffic over the next 48 hours. Air is still bad!

based on these observations, the eruption on La Palma is currently intensifying! I don’t understand wha MSM reports the opposite!
