'Very scary!' La Palma airport closed as volcanic ash continues to rain from the sky


María José Blanco, Director of the National Geographic Institute, discussed the situation and further possible dangers.

She explained a total or partial collapse of the volcanic cone is a “danger” and “worst possible scenario”.

She also highlighted fears of “more fluid lava, pyroclasts of greater size and abundant ashfall”.

While the eruption took place six days ago, volcanic tremors have continued to increase.

A tremor recorded yesterday was more intense than those on Monday and Tuesday this week.
