La Palma (Canary Islands (Spain)): The activity continues more or less at the same level as that described last night. Pulsed lava fountains with strong ash emissions occur from the main vent at the summit crater level, while the lava effusion is visible from the lower vent.
The lava flow field hasn’t changed much. Earthquakes have been less frequent over the past 24 hours, and there is now a tendency for deflation, which could mean that the pressure in the magma chamber has finally started to drop.
Overall, the intensity of the rash slowly subsided, although that could of course change again. But at least these are grounds for hope for locals that the eruption could subside as soon as possible.
… October 5:
The eruption continued without significant change today, although the visible and audible intensity tended to decrease. The lava fountain from the vents at the top was more pulsating and less intense, but still produced a lot of ash, which formed a plume that rose 2-3 km and drifted west.
The lower vent in the middle of the south-western slope of the cone, which had been the site of heavy lava emission last week, was again more active today. Most of the time, it produced a liquid fountain sometimes reaching tens of meters high and feeding a visible channeled lava flow moving towards Tacande, but following the same path as the previous ones.

Most of the activity is concentrated on the West Fissure where vigorous lava splashes have built a horseshoe-shaped splash cone around the vent. Low lava fountains continue to spout from the chain of vents that stretch from the center of the lake to its southern margin.
