Sputnik is live from the Canary Island of La Palma, Spain, as the volcano Cumbre Vieja continues erupting for a 13th consecutive day.
The Canary Islands Volcanic Institute earlier reported that a peninsula formed by lava, that gushed from the mountains down to the Atlantic Ocean, has reached the size of some 20 hectares, which is the equivalent of over 25 football pitches.
The volcano began erupting on 19 September. The ongoing eruption has destroyed almost 600 buildings, 258 hectares of land, and damaged 13 miles of road to date. About 6,000 La Palma residents have been evacuated.
