A volcano erupted on Spain’s Atlantic Ocean island of La Palma on Sunday afternoon — forcing the evacuation of about 5,000 people from their homes that were threatened by lava flows.
Some of the homes have already been destroyed following the 3 p.m. eruption on the southern end of the island that sent huge red plumes of magma into the sky.
New eruptions continued into the night and came after a weeklong buildup of seismic activity in the area.
About 5,000 people evacuated from their homes, according to Victor Torres, president of the Canary Island. . .
La Palma has a population of 85,000. It is one of eight volcanic islands in Spain’s Canary Islands archipelago off Africa’s western coast. (Read more from “Massive Volcano Eruption in Spain Causes Thousands To Flee” HERE)
