La Palma volcano update: Spectacular continuous lava fountains, tall ash emissions, eruption seems stable

Lava fountain and ash column from Cumbre Vieja volcano this morning
The eruption has been relatively stable during the past 24 hours: sustained, fast-pulsating lava fountains are rising from the vent, reaching several hundred meters and generating an ash and steam column that rises near vertically to estimated 3-4 km elevation.

The fountaining is remarkably stable, although at times briefly interrupted by giant lava bubble explosions that eject glowing lava bombs in all directions to more than 1000 m distance, often showering the whole cone with red-hot lava ejecta.
Some of these produce cannon-shot loud detonations with visible shock waves that are felt in many kilometers distance. Some people confused them with earthquakes.
Volcanic tremor overall is stable and still high, perhaps with a slightly decreasing overall trend. Earthquakes have mostly ceased and inflation seems to have stalled. This indicates that the eruption has likely found a stable phase.
Not much significant activity occurred at the lava flow fronts, which continue to widen the flow field and/or overlap older flows, thus thickening it.
