In total there are 1,092 hectares of

La Palma

affected by the magma of the

volcano

and the

southern

lava delta

has 48.03 hectares, while the northern one extends 5.05 hectares.

The

deep and intermediate seismicity

remains low compared to previous weeks and the tremor is also low, although with rebounding.

Scientists see it as likely that

felt

earthquakes

will continue to occur

, which can reach intensity V-VI and cause small landslides in areas of slopes.

Scientists warn of the risk of gases from the La Palma volcano: the exclusion zone is not a whim

The Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) emphasizes that the exclusion zone around the perimeter of the

volcano

in

Cumbre Vieja

and Las Coladas "is not a whim", and warns of the risk of entering it due to exposure to harmful gases .

In a video recorded in the Llano del Jable area by Manuel Nogales, with texts by Joaquín Quirós, the CSIC tries to explain the danger of not respecting the rules and to justify that the exclusion zone can only be entered with an "authorization explicit prior ".

The images show a portable gas detector - hydrochloric acid (HCL), hydrochloric acid (H2S), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) - emitting visual and acoustic warning signals for high values.

Each of these gases has a baseline value, a daily exposure limit value of up to eight hours and a short exposure limit value of 15 minutes.

The authorities study the hydrological works that La Palma needs in view of the risk of collapse by the volcano

The Cabildo de La Palma, Civil Engineers, the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain and the National Geographic Institute are studying the hydrological works to be carried out on

La Palma

in light of the warning of heavy rainfall and the risk posed by the

eruption

.

With regard to the coastal areas of Las Manchas, Jedey and La Bombilla, he has admitted that "it is evident that there is risk", because the evacuation of water throughout the Aridane Valley has changed.

Hence, he insisted, the importance of the study that is being carried out to re-channel the waters and correct the channels and the rainwater evacuation areas, in order to minimize the vulnerability of these neighborhoods.

Morcuende has asked the population to avoid troughs and rainwater evacuation areas when heavy rains occur and to avoid areas of slopes that may be unstable to avoid personal injury.

The rain puts La Palma at risk by diverting the waterways from the eruption

The rain puts several coastal areas on

La Palma

at risk

, as the

volcanic

eruption

has diverted the

water courses, so the experts study what hydrological works to carry out in Los Llanos de Aridane to avoid problems in the La Laguna area.

As indicated today by the technical director of the Special Plan for Protection against Volcanic Risk of the Canary Islands (Pevolca), Miguel Ángel Morcuende, the

eruption

in

Cumbre Vieja

has diverted the water

courses

, so it is necessary to improve rain evacuation.

In this regard, it has warned of the serious damage that could be caused by rain and ash, which can occur if heavy or very heavy rainfall occurs that exceeds 15 millimeters an hour or 60 a day.

The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has raised this Friday to orange the warning in the eastern region of La Palma due to heavy to very strong rainfall accompanied by a storm, which is expected to subside during the next morning, and on Saturday it is expected to rain Moderately.
