Just been watching this short clip - it is frighteningly impressive, DEW.

Lava engulfs more buildings in La Palma

West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire

No county (Lincolnshire) has better churches and worse houses. The poorer sort of people wash their clothes with hog's dung, and burn dried cow's dung for want of better fuel; whence comes the Lincolnshire proverb: "Where the hogs shite soap and the cows shite fire".

Yes, there have been a few sizeable lava “breakouts” today and the seismic activity is also continuing at depth indicating (I believe) that the eruption is unlikely to finish in the very near future.

An interesting update:

https://www.volcanodiscovery.com/la-palma/news/144005/La-Palma-volcano-eruption-update-high-lava-effusion-rates-new-lava-arm-at-the-sea-speculation-about-.html

Seismic activity shows worrying signs
According to a post of a geoscience page VolcanesyScienciaHoy on facebook based in Tenerife, the current seismic activity points towards that more magma is moving upwards, as indicated by 3 factors:
- several earthquakes appeared at depths less than 7-8-9 km;
- after the 4.2 quake two days ago, there have been episodes of spasmodic tremor with many earthquakes in a row that indicate movement of magma in depth;
- since yesterday, the appearance of strong volcanic tremor at around 18 Hz frequency thought to be caused by depressurization of fluids at great depth around 10 km;
If these interpretations hold, there should soon be noticeable ground uplift visible in the GPS stations (which, so far, is not the case). What will next happen, when this new magma pulse reaches the surface, is unknown.

Some good footage here of the damage being done. The lava flows continue unabated and it’s sad to see people having to leave their homes. There’s also a clip of lava flowing onto a main road.

LOL

 

But the island could be a fair bit bigger by the end of this.

Etna is looking quite lively at the moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN423jYeMak

 

Edit: Here is a view of what was happening earlier as I suspect the luve camera (above link) will be less interesting if people click on it:
