According to the Spanish Institute of Geology and Mining, red-hot magma blocks flowed in the shape of a three-story building along the wet volcano in Cumbre.
From Monday, members of the Spanish navy will help clear volcanic ash across large parts of the island, Defense Minister Margarita Robells said during a visit on Sunday.
The Canary Islands Volcano Institute said on Twitter (NYSE 🙂 that lava flows, with temperatures as high as 1,240 degrees Celsius (2,264 degrees Fahrenheit), destroyed the last few buildings standing in the village of Todok.
A partial cone collapsed near the eruption center on Saturday, ING spokesman Stavros Melletlidis told Reuters.
Spain’s National Security Department tweeted, “The northern collapse of the Cumbre wet volcano has released large amounts of material and created a new flow through the already evacuated areas.”
“Lava arrives at Camino de la Gata Industrial Estate and new building.”

Miguel েলngel Mুয়েrquend, technical director of the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergency Planning (Pavolka) agency, said the lava occupied 493 hectares (1,218 acres) of land.
Nearly, 000,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in La Palma, where there are about 3,000 residents.
Lightning was seen near the blast early Saturday morning. A study published in 2016 by the Journal of Geophysical Research Letters found that lightning can occur during a volcanic eruption because the collision of ash particles generates an electric charge.
