Fajã do Cumbre Vieja is already over 40 hectares and threatens to break

An fThe jaja formed by the entry of the volcano into the volcano ejected by the volcanic Gumbre Vija continues to grow and is already over 40 hectares and threatens to break up, According to Spain’s Department of National Security.

The volcano erupted on September 19 and reached the ocean in the Daskort area at midnight on Tuesday, September 28. Now activity has increased again.

The contact of the volcanoes, at one thousand degrees centigrade, with seawater, at about 20 degrees, caused a cloud of acid gases, which forced them to enclose the people closest to them, which immediately began to form a peninsula, extending the island.

A pile of volcanoes formed Fajo is the name given to the flat peninsulas formed in the islands of Macaronia (Azores, Madeira, Canary Islands and Cape Verde) by lava entering the ocean.

La Palma has two famous phases, the French and the Barovento, but there is another landscape at sea. In 1949 the San Juan Volcano erupted, Which became a fertile field for growing banana trees.

The last known eruption before the current eruption Teniguna volcano in 1971It lasted 24 days and captured an area of ​​two square kilometers from the sea today known as Eccentric Beach.

Cumbre Vieja fajã is still under construction and unstable. Officials warn that it has already crossed the island’s shelf and that the volcano is still flowing, sinking deeper and threatening to break the front of the delta, creating a sharp cloud of toxic and hydromagnetic eruptions if this happens. .

Emerging Peninsula It is already more than 500 meters from the beach and 30 meters deep.

Oh Increased land to the island, property of the Spanish state, Forms part of the national geographical heritage, and is therefore subject to the law of natural heritage and biodiversity.

The total surface area affected by magma on Palma Island in the Canary Islands has already been exceeded 471 hectares, 36 km in circumference and maximum width of 1,250 m120 hectares of arable land, mostly including banana trees.

Recent data on losses indicate At least 726 buildings were destroyed by the volcano and 128 areas were affected. More than 33 km of roads have been affected, of which 26.47 km are completely covered by volcanoes.

European Satellite Service Copernicus Evaluation 4,800 hectares of land covered with volcanic ash.

The volcano continues to emit large amounts of volcanoes, and experts agree that there may be more than 100 small-scale earthquakes and new magma stores in 24 hours due to the current seismic activity recorded in Gumbre Viza.

Experts warn that the main cone led and it increased the ejected lava, which appears to be more fluid and there is a fear of changing the course of existing flows.
