Global News published this video item, entitled “La Palma volcano: Eruption continues as advancing lava threatens homes and businesses” – below is their description.

The Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma, which began erupting on Sept.19, was still spewing lava more than one month after its first eruption on Wednesday.

The advancing lava continues to threaten homes and businesses. Streams of lava have engulfed almost 800 hectares of land and destroyed about 2,000 buildings since the eruption started.

More than 6,000 people have had to leave their homes.

The volcano has produced a constant rumble and roar, with dozens of minor earthquakes most days, but a 4.8-magnitude tremor – the most powerful since the volcano’s first eruption – hit La Palma on Tuesday night, Spain’s Institute of Geosciences said.
