Global News published this video item, entitled “La Palma volcano: Drone footage shows path of devastation as lava makes its way to ocean” – below is their description.

Drone video captured Monday and Tuesday showed the extent of the damage caused by lava flowing from the Cumbre Vieja volcano in La Palma, Spain as the country classified the island as a disaster zone Sept. 28.

From buildings to banana plantations, the lava has consumed everything in its path with almost 600 homes destroyed as the lava flow makes its way to the ocean.

Some communities along the coast have also been put on lockdown as there is expectation when the lava meets the Atlantic Ocean — though the exact time is not known — it is likely to release toxic gases.
