A volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma has re-energized, spewing out a giant fountain of lava. It is reported by The Washington Post.

The volcano that has erupted over the past five weeks on the Spanish island of La Palma is more active than ever. Officials said this on Monday after new lava flows after the partial collapse of the crater began to threaten to cover areas previously unaffected by the eruption.

Early Monday, a powerful new river of molten rock burst out of the Cumbre Vieja volcano. As a result of the eruption, a cloud of volcanic ash rose high above the island off northwest Africa.

Rapid evacuation so far has made it possible to avoid victims of the eruption, although lava has completely or partially destroyed more than 2,000 buildings, mostly houses. It also covered more than 900 hectares, mainly agricultural land. Over the past five weeks, about 7,500 of the 85,500 residents of the island have had to leave their homes.

Authorities said the rivers of lava flowing down the hillside are nearly 3 kilometers wide. Over the weekend, new cracks and side vents have opened on the slopes of the volcano, from which molten rock flows. She has already reached the Atlantic Ocean.
