La Palma volcano: Spain's Royals meet evacuees as eruption enters 5th day

CA, 24 Sep 2021
Spain's King Felipe and Queen Letizia, along with Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska, visited some of the thousands of evacuees as the Cumbre Vieja volcano eruption continued for a fifth day.

Since erupting on Sunday, lava flowing down the slopes of the volcano engulfed more than 200 houses, schools and banana plantations, although more slowly than in previous days.

Volcanologists have said the gases spewing from the eruption is not harmful to health. But a plume of thick cloud now extends some 4.2 km into the air, raising concerns of visibility for flights.

Local authorities have warned people to clean food and clothes to avoid ingesting the toxic ash.
