The volcano erupted in La Palma, one of the groups of the Canary Islands in southwestern Spain.
With the eruption of the volcano, 350 people in the El Paso settlement in the area were removed from their homes as a precaution.
On the island of La Palma, where more than 21,000 earthquakes occurred last week, the volcano’s activity was announced as of 16:10 local time today.
In a statement issued by the Autonomous Administration of the Canary Islands, it was stated that 327 earthquakes occurred in La Palma today, and flames began to erupt from the five mouths of the volcano.
It was noted that 350 people in the El Paso settlement in the area were removed from their homes for precautionary purposes when the volcano became active.
On the other hand, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced that he has postponed his visit to the United States to attend the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
Sanchez noted in a post on his Twitter account that he “went to La Palma to see the works first hand.”
The La Palma volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the Canary Islands group.
