“Today the Cumbre Vieja volcano devoured one of its predecessors, San Juan,” the Spanish daily ABC wrote.

The newspaper pointed out that lava from Cumber Vieja covered the roads leading to the summit of San Juan. They pointed out that the crater of the volcano was completely buried with ash emerging from the currently active volcano in La Palma.

Meanwhile, the authorities of the Canary Islands on Monday afternoon ordered the evacuation of 3,000 people from the town of Tazacorte, who were threatened by the high level of sulfur dioxide in the air from the Cumbre Vieja volcano.

They mentioned that among the more than 2000 more than 1.1 thousand buildings in La Palma destroyed by the volcanic eruption residential houses.

Volcanologists from the Spanish National Geographic Institute (IGN) have reported seismic activity around the volcano over the past 24 hours. They reported quakes with a magnitude of 4.8 on Monday.
