A 4.8 earthquake shook La Palma, the island's soil has risen by ten centimeters

About 200 earthquakes that shook La Palma, some of which ranged in magnitude from 4 to 4.8, have rocked La Palma, whose ground has risen by 10 cm in the past 24 hours. An elected official proposed bombing the island to channel the lava flow.

The Cambre Vieja volcano has been erupting on the island of La Palma since September 19. During the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, approximately 200 earthquakes were recorded: 80 greater than magnitude 3 and ten oscillations between 4 and 4.8. They could be felt in other islands of the Canary Islands.

The National Geographical Institute has detected a height of more than 10 cm above ground with strong deformation near the volcano’s erupting mouth in the past 24 hours.

The cone of the volcano has partially collapsed again. But the lava flow marks a halt in its progress towards the ocean. They are increasing in thickness.

Army units take part in ash removal and clean-up operations to prevent the roof or building from collapsing.

On behalf of his constituents, troubled by the damage caused by ash falls and lava flows, the president of the neighboring island of Gomera, Casimiro Curbello, proposed use military planes. “Isn’t there a plane that can drop bombs and thus direct the lava in the direction you want?” “
