A volcano has erupted in the Canary Islands

The military is assisting in the evacuation of the population.

On Sunday, a volcano erupted in the south of the island of La Palma, which is part of the Canary Islands belonging to Spain.

According to official data, the authorities began evacuating sick people and farm animals from the surrounding villages before the disaster began.

Later, an order was issued for the mandatory evacuation of four villages. The military was sent to help the residents; people living in the villages were asked to minimize the use of mobile phones.

The Spanish Civil Guard announced on Twitter that it would take part in the evacuation of 5,000 to 10,000 people.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said that he is postponing a trip to New York for the UN General Assembly and is going to La Palma.

Stavros Meletlidis, a volcanologist from the Spanish Geographical Institute, said that five cracks appeared due to the eruption. It is still unclear how long the outbreak will last, the expert believes.

According to official data, there have been no reports of injuries yet.
