The Steering Committee of the Special Plan for Civil Protection and Attention to Emergencies due to Volcanic Risk of the Canary Islands (PEVOLCA) of the Government of the Canary Islands, led by the Minister of Public Administrations, Justice and Security, Julio Pérez, analyzed the daily report of the Scientific Committee that indicates that during the last 24 hours the effusive phases alternated, with intense explosive episodes.

In the meetings of the Committees, the new lava flow that emerged yesterday was analyzed, which is currently slowly moving south towards Corazoncillo, an area that is evacuated, and which is being specially watched and monitored.

Lava flows [12 October 2021]

There are currently three lava flows on La Palma. As of today, October 12, 2021, how many lava flows are there in the La Palma Volcano and we classify them in 3 different points.

  • Lava flow 1: It is completely stopped, the one that reaches the sea. Today in this there is no activity as reported this afternoon by the Pevolca.
  • Lava flow 2: It is the parallel and runs through an area already evacuated and affects crops and buildings but there have been no people there for 2 weeks.
  • Lava flow 3: This lava flow is the branch that separates from the parallel flow that the experts are already seeing that it could, although it is not safe, affect the nucleus of the La Laguna neighborhood, for that reason they have proceeded to evacuate with enough time so that the belongings that the neighbors want are removed.
