Tense and desolate panorama by volcano in La Palma (+Photo)

Los Llanos de Aridane, Spain, Sep 21 (Prensa Latina) The images dazzle for the reddish flashes, but almost 200 houses destroyed by the lava, fill with sadness the island of La Palma, one of several in the Canary Islands group.

There is still no precise end to this story that surprised the inhabitants of La Palma on Sunday, when the Cumbre Vieja volcano began its eruptions and the lava flow began to move slowly.

In addition to the houses, literally swallowed up by the magma, about 200 hectares, mainly banana plantations, some public facilities and schools, are also suffering from the volcano eruption.

Experts waited that the lava continues to advance down to the sea, but a new eruptive fissure opened near Tacande, in El Paso, in addition to an earthquake that shook the area.

President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sanchez, reiterated his total support and commitment to the recovery and reconstruction in La Palma.

However, the outlook for the economic future of the population of La Palma is at the moment uncertain and bleak.

The Canary Islands Government announced the granting of 1.1 million euros in subsidies to help alleviate the damages.
