(Worthy News) – An erupting in the Canary Islands has blown open a third fissure – sending a fresh river of lava down the mountainside.

It came as authorities recorded eight new earthquakes up to magnitude 3.5 on the island of La Palma on Friday.

They are now waiting to see whether lava from the new fissure – which burst open around 400m to the north of original eruption site – will join the main flow from the Cumbre Vieja volcano range, which has reached the Atlantic Ocean. [ Source (Read More…) ]

Erupting Spanish volcano turns ‘more aggressive’: officials

An erupting volcano on a Spanish island off northwest blew open two more fissures on its cone Friday that belched forth lava, with authorities reporting “intense” activity in the area.

The new fissures, about 50 feet apart, sent streaks of fiery red and orange molten rock down toward the sea, parallel to an earlier flow that reached the Atlantic Ocean earlier this week.

The volcano was “much more aggressive,” almost two weeks after it erupted on the island of La Palma, said Miguel Ángel Morcuende, technical director of the Canary Islands‘ emergency volcano response department. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
