Lava from the Cumbre Vieja volcano in La Palma continued to advance across the Spanish island on Friday, October 29. More than a month has passed since its initial eruption and the volcano has destroyed more than 2,000 buildings, according to official estimates. This video, filmed by the Institute of Volcanology of the Canary Islands (Involcan) on Friday, shows lava advancing over La Palma. The volcano erupted for the first time on September 19.
