Global News published this video item, entitled “La Palma volcano: Beachgoers not fazed by eruption as Spain declares island a disaster zone” – below is their description.

Beachgoers in volcano-stricken La Palma were not deterred from getting a tan and swimming in the ocean as the Canary island was classified as a disaster zone on Tuesday by the Spanish government, a move that will trigger emergency subsidies and other support measures.

The government announced an initial aid package of 10.5 million euros ($12.30 million), which includes around 5 million euros to buy houses, with the rest to acquire furniture and essential household goods, government spokesperson Isabel Rodriguez told reporters on Tuesday.

Lava has been slowly flowing down the volcano’s western flank toward the ocean since Sept 19, destroying almost 600 houses as well as churches and banana plantations in La Palma.
