Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Volcano in La Palma, Spain has two new mouths spewing lava” – below is their description.

As the lava from the volcano hardens when it comes into contact with water, the Spanish Canary Island found to the north-west of Africa is continuing to expand, scientists said earlier. Since erupting on September 19, lava flowing from the volcano has destroyed more than 800 buildings, as well as banana plantations, roads and other infrastructure. After meandering downhill to the coast for nearly 10 days, the lava reached the ocean just before midnight on Tuesday, a kilometre west of Tazacorte. On reaching the water, the lava cools rapidly, binding to the cliffside and enlarging the island’s territory and has created a rocky outcrop more than 546 yards wide.
