Lava from Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands in southwestern Spain has destroyed 2,185 buildings, most of them houses, in a 33-day period.
According to data updated by the European Union Satellite Imaging System (Copernicus), it is reported that the volcanic lava burned 2,185 buildings and that currently 76 houses are in danger.
The lava that flows from both sides of the volcano, which has been active since September 19, has covered an area of 866 hectares on the island.
Also under lava are some roads of 62.6 kilometers in the region.
The lava, which has also reached the La Laguna settlement, burned the school and the gas station located in the area. Officials announced that the fuel in the fuel had previously been evacuated for the purpose of precautionary measures.
Over 1,200 people since yesterday have been evacuated from their homes which are threatened by lava, whose temperature reaches up to 1,150 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, it is noted that the number of people who have left their homes has exceeded over 8 thousand.
