La Palma: Drones record lava rushing to swift shore and thousands of people being evacuated
Lava has consumed everything in the volcano’s path – homes, cars and buildings are gone. Those tasked with moving the evacuees to safety are full of empathy. They know many will not have a home to come back to.
The rumbling of Cumbre Vieja is deceptive. To the untrained ear, it sounds like thunder, but locals who remember the last eruption 50 years ago know better.
The sound and smell of the bubbling volcano is a constant presence in La Palma, one of Spain’s Canary Islands. Its dense ash fills the air and is now threatening air travel.
