Rumble <span style="font-weight: 400;">Incredible footage from Roque de los Muchachos Observatory shows a time-lapse of the increasing nature of the volcano eruption from the Canary Island, La Palma.</span>

 

<span style="font-weight: 400;">15km away, the observatory managed to capture the evolution of the eruption through the evening of the 19th September.</span>

 

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Beginning as a plume of ash and smoke, the volcano began to spit out molten rock and lave as the sunlight faded over a five hour period.</span>

 

<span style="font-weight: 400;">The camera manager at the observatory, Miguel Rodríguez Alarcón said: “I was in Awe, fascinated and fearful by the force of nature.</span>

 

<span style="font-weight: 400;">“There is no personal injury, 5,000 people have been evacuated, material damage is expected to increase as lava flows pass near houses and private land.”</span>
