Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Spain Eruption: Lava Falls into Swimming Pools, Covers Roads and Houses” – below is their description.
(AP) Aerial pictures from a local video agency have captured the destruction that the small island of La Palma in the Canary Islands is facing since a volcano erupted.
The green and turquoise colors of its tropical paradise landscape turned into black and grey as lava covered entire fields, roads, houses and swimming pools.
Officials on the Spanish island of La Palma say dangers still lurk two days after the volcano erupted.
They said Tuesday that new earthquakes, rivers of molten rock, toxic gases, volcanic ash and acid rain are among the multiple threats.
Several small earthquakes shook the island off northwest Africa, keeping nerves on edge as rivers of volcanic lava continued to flow toward the sea.
After moving downhill across the island’s countryside since Sunday’s eruption, the lava is gradually closing in on the more densely populated coastline.
So far, the eruption has destroyed around 190 houses and prompted the evacuation of around 6,000 people.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
