A volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma that erupted in September is currently spewing molten rock and threatening the island’s inhabitants, prompting evacuations, according to the Associated Press.

 

Rivers of lava were flowing from the volcano, which erupted on Sept. 19, following two earthquakes that struck the island in just two days, the Associated Press reported. The Canary Islands Volcanology Institute described the flows of molten rock as “a true lava tsunami,” according to the AP.

Over 300 people were evacuated from the island on Thursday, with a total of roughly 1,200 people evacuated since Tuesday and 7,000 in total since the eruption began, according to the AP.

Spectacular volcano show that we have seen today. Volcano went nuts since about 8 pm today, right after the sunset. It had been an incredible show for the people at Miraduro de Tajuya last night. Crowds came to see the show.
