Eighteen days have passed since the eruption of the La Palma volcano began, the end of which, according to experts, does not seem to be near and, in order to deal with the disasters it is causing, the Council of Ministers has approved a new aid package of 214 million euros that are added to the 10.5 million of last week.

Although seismicity is increasing in terms of the number of episodes and magnitude, earthquakes remain at average depths of ten or more kilometers, which does not predict new eruptive centers.

In any case, the Scientific Committee has warned that given the great thicknesses of lava flow observed in some points, collapses of its front may occur which, in steeper areas, can lead to the formation of large fragments of lava flow, which they can come off.

5.30 A tsunami in La Palma would affect all the Canary Islands

Until less than three weeks ago, volcanology was seen as an exotic science that had nothing to do with our lives. Unless our home or work was on the slope of a volcano, in our day to day we were not aware of seismology, rock and ash explosions, the speed of a lava flow or the danger of gases that form when it reaches the sea. Unfortunately, since mid-September, this is the life of the inhabitants of the Canary Island of La Palma. With the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano, hundreds of families have lost everything: their home, their town, their crops and even their beach, while the entire country suffers with them.

Geologists and volcanologists are now the news reporters, the most demanded specialists to give us the report of the volcano and glimpse when this will end. But they are not visionaries who make random forecasts, but experts who interpret the language of Cumbre Vieja with scientific data, the movements of the magma that flows from its interior, its displacement and its evolution. This work, previously unnoticed, has been revalued. Society has seen minute by minute its vital importance for all those affected. [Read the complete information here, by Mar de Miguel].

5.00 This is how the volcanic eruption in La Palma is explained in graphics

The latest records of seismicity, geochemistry and deformation of the Cumbre Vieja volcano in La Palma indicate that the eruption is in a "mature" phase and therefore it can last "many days", according to those responsible for the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergency Plan ( Pevolca). Tremors continue to occur in the Fuencaliente area and, although they have not exceeded magnitude 3.8 in recent days, some of them have been felt by the population.

4.00 The priest of the volcano: "I have survived three eruptions... Luckily! That is because I have lived a lot"

The imposing roar of the Cumbre Vieja volcano sneaks into the Church of Tajuya while the parish priest, Don Domingo Guerra, tries to reassure his parishioners. "He says the saying that whoever sees one volcano no longer sees two", he recounts in an animated voice. "Well, look, I've survived three eruptions and I'm still here."

- Three?

- Yes, luckily.

- How lucky?

- Well son, because that means I've lived many years.

The Union and the Association of Canary Islands Banana Producer Organizations (Asprocan) announced this Wednesday at Madrid's 'Fruit Attraction Fair' the start of tests for freezing Canary bananas damaged by the ashes of the La Palma volcano, using For this, a new technology manages to keep the fruit for as long as necessary, preserving all its qualities of flavor and nutrients once it is defrosted.

The objective of this initiative is to fight against the food waste of a product that, although it is in perfect condition for consumption, is not suitable for being marketed by European regulations because it is damaged, exclusively, in its external image.

Thus, all of the fruit, once treated, cut and packaged, will be donated to soup kitchens, with which this initiative will, on the one hand, palliate and compensate for the inevitable product losses currently suffered by palm banana producers and, on the other, to give the product a second chance and turn it into a help for those most in need.

The damaged fruit will be collected in La Palma for its subsequent transfer to the new freezing and processing plant in Almería, where it will be processed to be packaged and sent to different food banks throughout Spain.

The solidarity for the volcanic catastrophe of La Palma has not ceased since the first day of the eruption, and this Wednesday, with the volcano in a stable phase, it has been quantified for the first time: seven million euros in cash have been been sent to those affected through official accounts.

With more than 600 houses destroyed, 6,000 evacuated and the uncertainty and fear of an ongoing eruption, these first aids from individuals and companies, which were preceded by shipments of clothing, food or belongings, represent an injection of joy for the island and this is how their institutions have celebrated this "flood of solidarity that has come from all over the world".

These aids will go directly to the people affected by the volcanic eruption and will serve to cover specific needs, once the basic needs have already been covered, the Cabildo de La Palma has detailed.

The volcanic eruption does not seem to be in a hurry, but the accommodation of the thousands of evacuees and especially those who have permanently lost their homes, is urgent.

For this reason, the Government of the Canary Islands, which is embarking on the search for and purchase of homes on the island, is also considering building prefabricated houses in the municipalities of Los Llanos de Aridane, El Paso and Tazacorte that could be ready in twenty days.

Volcán en La Palma, última hora en directo | Los expertos alertan de posibles colapsos ante los grandes espesores de lava existentes

With more than 600 houses destroyed, 6,000 evacuated and the uncertainty and fear of an ongoing eruption, these first aids from individuals and companies, which were preceded by shipments of clothing, food or belongings, represent an injection of joy for the island and this is how their institutions have celebrated this "flood of solidarity that has come from all over the world".

The volcanic eruption does not seem to be in a hurry, but the accommodation of the thousands of evacuees and especially those who have permanently lost their homes, is urgent.

It has been found that for the moment the lava has barely increased the affected area (up to 421.93 hectares in the latest measurements), thanks to the fact that the magma finds its way through the original flow and through a lava tunnel that empties directly into the sea. The negative part is that the volcano continues to emit 5,849 tons of sulfur dioxide per day, an indication that the end of the eruption is not yet near.

16.30 The volcano remains stable and is not causing further damage

The technical director of Pevolca, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, has confirmed that the activity of the La Palma volcano remains stable and is not causing further damage, since the lava flows continue to flow through the same channels towards the sea. However, he has warned that a powerful emission of sulfur dioxide remains in the plume, which does not allow the end of the eruption to be foreseen in the short term.

Morcuende has indicated in a press conference that one could already speak of "certain stability" of the situation, although "being the most prudent", since "we are facing a changing reality". In this sense, he has pointed out that several hours have passed in which the behavior of the volcano maintains its "constant" variables and "continues its path where it is doing." "Hopefully we can follow this path of stabilization and the volcano follows a path that does not harm us any more," he added.

13.45 Dentists warn of the danger to the teeth of using volcanic ash as toothpaste

The General Council of Dentists warns that, in recent days, reports are being made about the possibility of making toothpastes with volcanic ash, which could damage tooth enamel by being abrasive to teeth.

Like activated carbon, volcanic ash has a great abrasive capacity, its effect on teeth is similar to sandpaper. When the natural enamel is worn away, several effects are produced: the dentin is exposed, whose color is more yellowish than the enamel, dental sensitivity increases, since the dental pulp (the nerve) is more unprotected, and the gums can be also damaged.

Even so, under the promise of whitening teeth, some toothpastes contain a tiny amount of volcanic minerals, which does not mean that it is an essential material or that it produces the desired whitening effect.

The General Council of Dentists thus insists on the risk involved in making homemade toothpastes of this type.

"Tomorrow there will be a board of directors to buy the first homes and a protocol has been closed so that the social workers who join the office can do the paperwork on who the recipients of these homes are. We are facing the greatest challenge ever The Canary Islands have faced each other to rebuild the island", he observed.

Torres has also highlighted that fortunately there is no need to regret the loss of human lives and has stressed that the material damage is great, recalling that the area has run out of water and they have bought two desalination plants that cost 4 million that are moved to La Palma this Wednesday.

The objective of its study is, on the one hand, to interpret the information that the samples provide on the conditions and processes that occur in the magmatic reservoir at depth, that is, inside the volcano.

Secondly, to establish a base of the composition of the beginning of the volcanic activity with the lavas and tephras of the initial eruptions, the first ones that took place, in order to understand how the magmatic system has evolved, through the analysis of samples of the most recent eruptive stages.

11.09. The PP demands from the EU a recovery plan and tourist promotion for La Palma

The Canarian MEP of the Popular Party, Gabriel Mato, has requested, in the session of the European Parliament that was held in Strasbourg, that the European Union launch "an authentic recovery and tourist promotion plan for the Canary Islands" that will help the island to generate economy after the effects of the volcanic eruption and that is accompanied by the necessary funds.

La calidad del aire registra una mejora con respecto a días anteriores, aunque se espera, en próximos días, un ligero empeoramiento.

El cambio del viento podría distribuir el penacho marino hacia el norte/nordeste de La Palma y afectar a la actividad del aeropuerto.

09.01. Emilio, el primer testigo de la erupción del volcán en La Palma: "Pasé mucho miedo, creí que me comía la lava"

Cuando el Cumbre Vieja te ha perdonado la vida de milagro, puedes permitirte abrir la puerta recién levantado, despeinado, tras una noche de juerga para celebrar la vida. «Me encontré con unos amigos y me agarré un florete... En fin, vayan pasando», resume el primer testigo de la erupción de La Palma, José Emilio Rodríguez, con su aspecto de don Quijote.

La bodega de José Emilio, Chimilio le llaman, está a 90 metros del punto donde el volcán comenzó a escupir humo, cenizas y lava, según Google Maps. Podrían ser 90 o podrían ser 200, pero está al lado, claramente. Tanto que no se ve otra más cerca de la zona cero en las fotos previas al desastre. A él le agarró «quitando el pinillo»: limpiando el terreno de agujas de pinos.

«Esto llegó casi sin avisar. Los expertos decían que iba a romper por otra parte, más abajo, pero yo recuerdo que noté algún temblor en las dos hojas de las ventanas de la bodega, algo así», dice mientras tamborilea en los cristales de su casa de Tazacorte, donde nació hace 59 años. «No le di mucha importancia a los temblores, pero entonces sonó una explosión, y escuché un ronquido así: '¡Brrrrrrom!'. Me cayó una lluvia de cenizas que me alcanzó de lleno. Fue como si la montaña se quebrara. En ese momento me entró mucho miedo, dejé la puerta de la bodega abierta y eché a correr. Yo pensé que me comía, pero tuve suerte porque la lava cayó hacia el otro lado». [Lee aquí la información completa]

Tazacorte, en la isla de La Palma, es testigo privilegiado de la erupción del volcán de Cumbre Vieja pero preferiría no serlo, sumido como está en una desmoralización absoluta porque justo sacaba la cabeza después de la pandemia del coronavirus.

"De bonito no tiene nada", dijo a la Afp sobre el volcán José Carlos Bautista Martín, un jubilado de 70 años que cumple con su rutina diaria de venir al puerto de este pueblo de 4.600 habitantes a contemplar la erupción.

"Sólo lo que deja es una lava negra, oscura, un fuego intenso que es interminable, que parece que no va terminar jamás, y esos rugidos como si fuera el mismo diablo", añade sobre el murmullo constante del volcán, similar al de un reactor de avión.

El puerto de Tazacorte es uno de los pocos puntos de la isla de La Palma, en el turístico archipiélago de Canarias, desde donde se puede ver tanto la boca del volcán como la caída de la colada de lava al mar, unos cientos de metros más abajo.

08.25. Las desaladoras para dar riego en La Palma entrarán en funcionamiento a finales de la próxima semana

El consejero ha comentado que tienen capacidad para bombear 2.800 metros cúbicos diarios a la red, que se verán complementados con el barco cisterna que el Gobierno central envía desde la Península y llegará la próxima semana.

Valbuena ha precisado, no obstante, que este agua de regadío es de "mantenimiento" para lograr la "supervivencia" de las plantas, no su crecimiento, una obra "de contingencia" para que las fincas puedan garantizar su actividad en el futuro.

08.01. El buscador de Google añade un enlace para ayudar a los afectados por el volcán de La Palma

07.00. Los expertos alertan de posibles colapsos en algunos puntos ante los grandes espesores de lava existentes

El Comité Científico ha advertido de que ante los grandes espesores de colada de lava observados en algunos puntos tras la erupción del volcán en La Palma, se pueden producir colapsos de su frente que, en zonas de mayor pendiente, pueden conllevar la formación de grandes fragmentos de colada, que pueden desprenderse del frente de la colada y que de forma repentina alcanzando distancias de varios metros desde el frente de colada, dependiendo de la topografía. También en zonas de gran pendiente, se puede producir pequeños flujos piroclásticos.

06.59. El magma sigue el camino marcado por la primera colada para desembocar en el mar, donde el delta avanza ya 540 metros desde la costa

Los datos de sismicidad, geoquímica y deformación apuntan a que no está cercano el final de la erupción del volcán de Cumbre Vieja en La Palma, que está en fase "madura", de manera que hay que prepararse "para echar bastantes días", han afirmado este martes los responsables del Plan de Emergencia Volcánica de Canarias (Pevolca).

La predicción meteorológica apunta a que esta tarde los vientos alisios girarán la columna de ceniza y gases del penacho hacia la vertiente noreste de la isla, lo que podría afectar a la operatividad del aeropuerto de La Palma.

Los expertos del Pevolca, con Miguel Ángel Morcuende como director técnico, creen que lo más probable en el corto plazo es que la lava, bastante fluida, se siga evacuando hacia el mar por encima del camino ya marcado por la colada primigenia, si bien se mantiene la vigilancia permanente ante la posibilidad de que se ensanche o haya nuevos avances, que por ahora no se han detectado.

Tampoco hay nuevos centros de emisión, aunque sí una fisura con emisión de gases y elevada temperatura en el suelo que de momento no tiene mayor importancia, puesto que además está en el entorno del cono activo.
