New lava fronts test the volcano's vigor five weeks after its eruption

Far from subsiding, the

La Palma volcano

has reached

five weeks of eruption.

This Sunday, it added a new wash and an open spout under the secondary cone from which abundant liquid lava flows, and in which the earthquakes have been constant.

Carmen López, head of the volcanic surveillance network of the

National Geographic Institute (IGN)

, points out that it is still too early to know how this new emission center will behave in the future, if it will form a new cone or if it will be a spillway of lava like other previously opened ones, through which more liquid lava comes out.

This makes it go downhill faster over pre-existing runs.

López indicates that an increase in the tremor signal has been verified this Sunday until it reaches a climax that coincides with the appearance of that new emission center, and from there it has decreased notably.

There has also been a considerable increase in seismicity and explosiveness in recent hours, with several sonic bombs, until the opening of the new hole in the volcanic building in Cumbre Vieja.

In this regard, Carmen López points out that the volcano "needs a lot of energy" to find new ways out of the lava, and that when the overpressure is released and a constant flow is maintained, this explosiveness disappears.
