Martínez de Besson, geographer and professor emeritus of geography at the Autonomous University of Madrid, said at a symposium.
The expert explained that “the southern part of La Palma has eruptive potential. It is not surprising that there will be new eruptions in the future. Man has limited technical ability, given the extraordinary power of the volcano.”
Cumbre Vieja has been in operation since September 19 and has already left a trail of destruction on the island of La Palma. Authorities said more than 1,100 homes and nearly 600 hectares of lava from the volcano were destroyed. In addition, emergency services said more than 6,000 people had to leave their homes.
Despite the effects of the devastation, Spain succeeded in care and reported no deaths or injuries from the eruptions.
