La Palma (Canary Islands (Spain)): The eruption continues at high levels with no significant changes, and no end in sight.
At the vent, mild to moderate lava fountains generating ash columns rising to approx. 3000 m altitude, and lava flow emissions continue. The lava flows continue to expand the flow field at various fronts, in particular along the northern margins, where they slowly approach La Laguna.

...13 Oct:
The strongest so far earthquake, at magnitude 4.4, hit the island this afternoon at 3.33 p.m. about 20 minutes ago. Its location was at approx. 36 km depth under the central part of Cumbre Vieja volcano.
The tremor was widely felt on the island. Other than this, seismic activity has remained at similar levels as yesterday. During the past 24 hours, there were 19 quakes between 3.0 and 4.0, and 47 quakes between 2.0 and 3.0. Smaller quakes - certainly there are hundreds of such - can currently not be detected as they are hidden in the strong volcanic tremor.

Thanks to the trade wind regime avoiding ash drifting over to the east coast, the airport of La Palma airport is operational again today, but 11 flights were cancelled and others delayed, according to local news. ...
