Spain officially announces the end of the volcano eruption Cumbre Vieja
Spain officially announces the end of the eruption of the "Cumbre Vieja" volcano on the island of "La Palma".
After an activity that lasted 3 months and caused severe damage, Spain officially announces the end of the eruption of the "Cumbre Vieja" volcano on the island of "La Palma".
The announcement came after the authorities waited 10 consecutive days without registering any visible sign of volcanic activity, which is the time required, according to scientists, to announce the end of the eruption.
Despite the end of the eruption, the risks of landslides still exist. Toxic gases will continue to be emitted while cleaning and rebuilding the damaged areas will take years.

Life has continued largely as normal on most of La Palma. A section of the south-western side has been the most affected.
