La Palma volcano in pictures: Trail of destruction as volcanic lava oozes across Spanish island

·1-min read

Around 6,000 people on La Palma in the Spanish Canary Islands have been evacuated as the Cumbre Vieja volcano continues to spew lava.

After moving downhill across the island’s countryside since Sunday's eruption, the lava is gradually closing in on the more densely populated coastline.

The lava has so far covered 106 hectares of terrain, according to the European Union’s Earth Observation Program, Copernicus.

Scientists say the lava flows could last for weeks or months.
