The volcano erupting from it Gumbre Vija Volcano From the island of La Palma (SpainIt falls into the water in a continuous flow and gets land from the sea this Thursday, while a decline in air quality is expected due to wind changes.
For this reason, experts urge people closest to the volcano to take extreme precautionary measures, especially on Fridays, and high values of sulfur dioxide have already been measured in the city of Dassault – which does not pose a health risk beyond regulations on air quality – and the smell of rotten eggs.
In this municipality, the volcano flows from the volcano on Tuesday Old Summit Reached the ocean, 500 micrograms of sulfur dioxide (SO2) per cubic meter is measured in real time, although this level has already dropped to 300.
It is now thought that the problem may extend to Las Lanos de Ariden (values of 100 micrograms per cubic meter) and El Paso, so special precautions are recommended: if necessary, stay home and use FFP2 masks, especially for people with respiratory conditions, the elderly, children and pregnant women.
This increase in measurements, with an increase in SO2 emissions from the volcano, is a relatively high value of 7,149 tons per day.
Continuous volcanic waterfall in the sea
Meanwhile, magma flows into the ocean in a continuous flow, falling in the form of a layer and forming a delta at the base of the cliff with a wide front, which reaches a depth of 24 meters at sea depth National Institute of Geology Spain.
According to the volcanic emergency, since the volcano reached the ocean, the main stream has “overflowed at some point” and “some fingers separated from the other axis”. Project of the Canary Islands (Bevolka).
In the area of contact of the magma with water, a vapor cloud and toxic gases are formed, a “sea bloom” that, at that time, accumulates in a small area.
Although the eruption process continues its operation, the remaining flows are practically inactive, although the appearance of the fumarolic field has been observed on the northeast side since this morning.
The consistency in laundry has allowed farmers to access their farms, feed their livestock, or go home for emergencies to collect something.
People were evacuated by the action of the volcano Old Summit They are maintained in the cities of San Boronto, Marina Alta, Marina Baja and La Condesa, as well as 2.5 km exclusion zones around the volcano and 2 nautical miles.
Faced with this situation, the Canary Islands regional government has approved an ordinance with tax breaks for victims of real estate, such as “zero” public indirect tax on canary islands (IGIC) for land acquisition (IGIC). Forgiveness of vehicles and equity and donation and inheritance fees.
Nearly a thousand buildings have been affected
According to the latest data from the European Copernicus Terrain Surveillance Satellite System, since the eruption on September 19, the volcano has covered 338.3 hectares, including 1,752.8 hectares of ash, including land taken from the sea since the night of the 28th.
Already 981 buildings have been affected, of which 855 have been destroyed, and 29.8 km of roads have been damaged, of which 27.4 have been devastated. The current height of the gray cloud is 5,000 meters above sea level.
Regarding the quake, Pavolka experts said it was in the same area as the previous day and at a depth of more than ten kilometers, with a magnitude of 3.3 on the Richter scale 2 and superficial movements around the epicenter.
The tremor is constant, although in some areas near the cone it maintains a constant pattern of high frequency and distortions.
The National Geographic Institute has detected eighteen earthquakes in the southern part of the island, four of which were felt to be very weak by population.
