HeadlineSep 22, 2021

In more news from Spain, about 6,000 people have been evacuated from the island of La Palma, part of the Canary Islands, as the Cumbre Vieja volcano continues to erupt. Today lava poured from the volcano for a fourth straight day since Sunday, burying homes in its path. Scientists warn the eruption and its aftermath could last up to three months and that if lava reaches the sea, it could trigger more explosions and clouds of toxic gases.
