La Palma (Canary Islands (Spain)): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Toulouse warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 10000 ft (3000 m) altitude or flight level 100 and is moving at 10 kts in SW direction.
The full report is as follows: ERUPTION AT 20210919/1410Z ONGOING ASH EMISSION OBS VA DTG:01/2100Z to 10000 ft (3000 m)
...1 Oct:
With the eruption approaching two weeks of activity, there is no sign of it ending anytime soon. Instead, the magma supply rate seems to be more or less stable, judging from visible lava output and volcanic tremor, which remains at high levels.
The cone complex above the original eruptive fissure is showing signs of becoming more and more unstable, as several new effusive vents have been opening up during the past 12 hours or so.

...1 Oct:
The eruption continues with stable lava output, feeding several lava flows both near the vent and the main one that is supplying lava to the new ocean entry, which continues to grow slowly.
During most of today, southerly winds caused continuous ash fall in the area of El Paso and beyond, making driving etc difficult and the air filled with dust. At the vent, activity remains intense: vigorous lava fountaining with heights between estimated 50-100 m continued at the fissure vent on the NW lower flank, while several vents in the summit as well as two newly formed vents in between were producing pulsating, powerful and near-vertical jets of gas, ash and lava bombs. The vents are aligned along a northwest-southeast trending line, presumably reflecting the original eruptive fissure.
