The lava of the volcano on Palma approached a distance of 800 meters from the ocean

Moscow. September 28. INTERFAX.RU – Lava from a volcanic eruption on the Spanish island of Palma, which can lead to clouds of toxic gas on contact with water, is 800 meters from the ocean, El Pais reported on Tuesday.

One of the two lava flows on Palma has slowed down, but the second is gaining speed and continues to move towards the coast.

The hotter and more liquid flow is directed towards the small coastal town of Todoke. If the lava reaches the sea, a chemical reaction will release toxic fumes into the atmosphere, especially hydrochloric acid, which is hazardous to breathing and irritating to the eyes and skin.

As a result of the eruption, which began on September 19, about 600 buildings were destroyed, about 6.2 thousand people were evacuated. No information on casualties or serious injuries has been reported to date.

Before the eruption on the island, where about 85 thousand people live, an increase in seismic activity was noted for about a week. The Institute of Volcanology of the Canary Islands concluded that the current eruption could last three months.

The last time on the island was the Tenegia volcano in 1971.
