A lava fountain erupts from Cumbre Vieja volcano after the collapse of the cone

According to the Instituto Volcanoes of the Canary Islands, the inner cone of Cumbre Vieja volcano collapsed on Tuesday, October 26, after previous damage created a new lava flow across La Palma, Spain. Images taken by the Canary Islands Volcanology Institute show a collapse and increased activity from Tuesday evening to night. The third clip shows a lava fountain reaching about 600 meters (1,969 feet) in the air, the institute writes. According to the EU Copernicus Emergency Management Service, lava flows from the volcano covered more than 906 hectares (3.5 square miles) of the island and destroyed at least 2,162 buildings as of Monday.Credit: Canary Islands Volcanology Institute via Storyful
