Hot lava from the Cumbre Vieja volcano reached the ocean on the night of September 29

Ten days after the beginning of the eruption of the volcano Cumbre Vieja on the Canary island of Palma, lava flows from it reached the Atlantic Ocean. The lava flows into the sea in the Playa Nueva area, the Institute of Volcanology of the Canary Islands reported on Wednesday, September 29.

Institute experts warned that contact of lava with seawater would release harmful gases that irritate the skin, eyes and respiratory tract, as well as difficulty breathing. However, strong winds appear to have carried the gas cloud away from the island.

In connection with the movement of lava to the ocean, the authorities of the Spanish island established a restricted area and urged local residents not to leave their homes.

The eruption, which began on September 19 for the first time in 50 years, has already led to the evacuation of over 6,000 people. Spreading over an area of 270 hectares, streams of incandescent lava with temperatures above 1000 degrees Celsius destroyed more than 650 houses and destroyed roads. The island has been declared a disaster zone. The damage from the natural disaster is estimated at more than 400 million euros.
