The lava delta could collapse and generate gases, explosions and several waves

Scientists have warned that, if the advance to greater depths in the sea of ​​the lava delta continues, the fajana generated by the volcanic eruption on La Palma, a collapse of its front could occur that would be accompanied by the sudden release of gases, with hydromagmatic explosions and waves.

The spokesperson for the scientific committee of the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergency Plan (Pevolca), María José Blanco, pointed out at a press conference this Friday that this situation could occur because the fajana has reached the limit of the island platform and, therefore, it is foreseeable that it will continue its advance.

Blanco added that the weather conditions are unfavorable for air quality, although the forecast is that it will improve as of tomorrow; in fact, the ash and sulfur dioxide plume that spreads from the volcano is affecting the operation of the La Palma and Tenerife North airports and It can be extended this afternoon to the Tenerife South aerodrome and, at night, to La Gomera.
