La Palma volcano update: Curfew imposed for some coastal areas, airport closed

Пн, 22 ноя 2021, 17:56
Due to the generation of the acid steam at the sea entry of the lava and the hazards these pose to people (as well as animals and plants), the government imposed a curfew neighboring coastal regions.
The reaction of the salt water with the magma produces poisonous gases mixed into the steam, in particular hydrochloric acid (HCl).
The air quality in the Ariadne Valley has been poor on many days throughout the eruption, often exceeding health limits of pollution by gasses and fine particles.
Unfortunately, the wind is blowing the ash plume from the volcano to the eastern side of the island at the moment, disabling the airport which remains closed. This situation is likely to remain so for the next days as well.
