The new lava flow, more fluid than the earlier one, continues to advance rapidly. It has reached and started to engulf Bangaeira village, downslope of the already destroyed Portela village.
If the eruption continues long enough, the lava flow, following the downwards slope, would eventually reach the eastern coast.
