The Cumbre Vieja volcano on Spain’s La Palma island continued its eruption for the 25th-straight day, sending plumes of ash into the air and lava pouring down the mountain slopes as fires smouldered nearby.
More than three thousand residents of La Palma were allowed to leave their homes on Tuesday when authorities ended a lockdown ordered after a thick cloud of smoke erupted from a volcano that has devastated the Spanish Canary island.
Emergency services told residents in the towns of El Paso and Los Llanos de Aridane to stay indoors, shut their windows and turn off air conditioning units to avoid inhaling toxic fumes from the burning cement plant as it was gradually swallowed by the lava.
The eruption which began on Sept. 19 has laid waste to a total area of nearly 600 hectares, according to authorities.
