The lava flows are approaching Todoque, the last urban centre before the sea
The main lava flows from the eruption in the municipality of El Paso, on the island of La Palma, is approaching the last urban area of Todoque, a town in Los Llanos de Aridane, before it hits the sea. The mayor of Los Llanos, Noelia García, said in an interview with Europa Press that the arrival of the lava is currently the "imminent risk."
Due to the current situation on the island, the La Palma Cabildo has informed that the following roads are now closed and are not allowed to be accessed by the public:
LP-213 Puerto Naos.
LP-215 Tazacorte-La Laguna.
LP-2 at the height of Tajuya.
LP-3 the La Cumbre highway.
