Canary Islands Volcano Erupts Today: So It Begins

September 19, 2021

The Cumbre Vieja volcano in La Palma, one of Spain’s Canary Islands, erupted Sunday, after several earthquakes were felt over the weekend.

The Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (Involcan) tweeted news of the eruption at 3:24 p.m. local time (10:24 a.m. ET) and urged members of the public to stay away from the area.

In a video posted on Twitter by the institute, a large plume of smoke is seen emerging from afar.

Earlier in the day, the volcanology institute wrote in a statement on Facebook that more than 25,000 earthquakes had been detected in the past nine days around the Cumbre Vieja volcano.

We wrote about this situation in a previous post based on a vision.

Another visionary said this last month:

“As Mother I invite each of you to stay where you are settled; only those who live near the coasts should move away from the coasts.  The seas will enter the land and some of them have underwater mountains which at some point will come to the surface.”

Below is live coverage of eruptions on La Palma in the Canary Islands.

Two hours later, with rivers of lava edging down the hillside, the municipality issued a mandatory evacuation order for four villages, including El Paso and Los Llanos de Aridane. Soldiers were deployed to help, and residents were asked to keep mobile phone use to a minimum.

Stavros Meletlidis, a doctor of volcanology at the Spanish Geographical Institute, said the eruption had opened up five fissures in the hillside and that he could not be sure how long it would last.

The erupting volcano can last for least 1-2 months as was in 1971 when the volcano last erupted on La Palma.

In addition, it was reported on La Palma that land detachment from the volcano is happening now.

Locals on LaPalma have uploaded a photograph which they say shows “Detachment.”   Part of the land which is FEARED to slide into the Atlantic Ocean and cause a Tsunami to the east coast of the United States, appears to have begun to DETACH at its top. There is a very clear tear in the forest atop the mountain showing bare earth along the uppermost ridge there the trees on the land have torn away from each other.  If this photo shows what the locals claim, then the landslide could happen **today**   Photo below:

Locals are now uploaded photos showing what they call a “Giant Land Fracture”   a great crevice seems to have begun to open showing a long tear in the land from the top of the mountain toward the bottom.   Dirt can be seen in the air from the tearing motion.     It APPEARS the giant land mass feared to slide into the Atlantic Ocean, is now actually tearing away slowly from the island.
