VIDEO: Moment lava completely demolishes a house on La Palma
The lava flows in La Palma is advancing through the southwest of La Palma in three streams, sweeping everything in its path as it heads towards the sea. The first two, the one that fed the new delta and the second one that branched off, have been slowed without material input, while the third, due to its speed after breaking the volcanic cone, is the one that is causing the most concern and has caused new evacuations earlier today.
This situation is causing more destruction, as can be seen in the shocking video in which a house disappears in the wake of the flow:
According to the data published early this morning (Thursday), 680.4 hectares have been affected by the passage of the volcano's runoff, 24.4 hectares more than yesterday; while the number of properties damaged now amounts to 1,548 between farms, commercial buildings and homes, which is 90 more in the last 24 hours according to the latest satellite images.
