Cumbre Vieja entering “more stable phase”
(EFE) The director of the Canary Islands National Geographic Institute (IGN), María José Blanco, said Tuesday that the eruptive process of the Cumbre Vieja volcano has entered a “more stable” phase, but that stability must be maintained over time.
This stability, she said, must be maintained “for some time” and even decrease “gradually and steadily” in all parameters: seismicity, deformation, tremor and gas emission.
The lava has already reached the beach of Los Guirres and is now about 50 meters short of the sea according to Francisco Prieto, spokesman for the steering committee of the Volcanic Emergency Plan of the Canary Islands (Pevolca).
