This is so awful. Being a small island, the gases and dust must be dreadful. I feel very sorry for them, but it could go on for months.

Folks are worrying about their holidays !! crazy

My fascination for these things has kept me occupied since last March when the Icelandic volcano erupted. She seemed to be very angry, and kept on giving birth . Loads of fissures/vents appeared and which ever one it isnow , it's still pumping out lava at an incredible rate. (maybe more than one)
Quite beautiful to see, but the power is something else.
Molten rocks and boulders, being thrown out from great depths to great heights..... and to think we stand on a crust of earth between that and us. omg

This video is the one of Iceland taken on the 18th September. Plenty more on youtube, but none appear to be 'live' any longer.

Here is live tonight from La Palma. I'm not sure how distant the cameras are from her,(quite a few km's) but she sounds as if she's having a battle down there.

Horrific, but utterly awe-inspiring and mesmerising. We are as nothing in the face of such power. All we can do is run. The inexorability of the lava flow, engulfing everything in its path, is hard to believe. I'm SO glad I don't live in a volcanic area!

It is horrific, Greenwood, and as you say, we are nothing in the face of such power.

This morning 'live' from a different position and it's been reported that another vent has opened up somewhere.

The power of Mother Nature is certainly very humbling.
I read a projection a few years back that a volcano, or something else on one of these islands, would cause some of the island to collapse into the sea and cause a tsunami that would devastate most of the eastern side of America and the Caribbean.
Can't remember if it was a volcano or an earthquake. Also forgot where I read or heard about it. Scary thought.

A volcanic eruption, Mikeeb. This is the same one you refer to. This article from 2014 explains more.:

More vents and three more towns evacuated. She's been vicious today, poured out copious amounts of smoke and crap. The inhbitants must be worried sick and many , heartbroken. Hope all th animals were out, although a couple on EUnews yesterday said theey couldn't get their cats.

Live at the moment here : Note the lava flow !!

How wierd ! Last night into the early hours she was shouting and banging away, throwing rockets of lava/magma into the air, streams of lava running down hill...... and then this morning ... silence !

She hasn't been quiet since last Sunday. Reports coming out that only a few hours before the lava reaches the sea. So we wait and see.

Calm before the storm ?
