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 S direction.
The full report is as follows: ERUPTION AT 20210919/1410Z ONGOING ASH EMISSION OBS VA DTG:10/2100Z to 10000 ft (3000 m)
...10 Oct:
The eruption continues at similar levels as during the past days. Explosions have been stronger and near constant this morning, our correspondent on location reported: "Highly noisy, energetic and sustained explosions began. Vibration of soil, vehicles and windows can be felt in the entire range of more than 5-6 km" around the vents.
Suggested by ongoing elevated tremor, lava effusion rates remain high. New lava arms have advanced at the western fronts at the coast and the existing ocean entry as well as in the upper northern margin, where tongues of lava flows have reached the Calle Principal de Tajuya where industrial buildings are located.
Deformation of the ground has remained stable, with a weak trend of deflation in some points. Earthquakes continued to increase slowly in numbers and intensity, though. During the past 24 hours, there was 1 quake of magnitude 4.1, 50 quakes between 3.0 and 3.9, and 100 quakes between 2.0 and 2.9. The quakes remain clustered at 10-15 km depth beneath the central part of the volcano, with a few events at various locations at 35-40 km depth in the upper mantle beneath the island.
