This is reflected in the latest report from the Department of National Security published at 08:00 this Sunday with data from the Government of the Canary Islands and the National Geographic Institute, in which it is recalled that yesterday Saturday the north flank collapsed after registering In the early hours of Friday a partial rupture of the wall of the cone, which has caused the exit of large blocks of material and the appearance of new flows.

For its part, the new flows have caused the lava to reach the Camino de La Gata Industrial Park and has reached new buildings and land. So far, the affected area amounts to about 500 hectares.

Regarding the fajana or lava delta, it continues its expansion in a north-south direction, feeding from various points and reaching an area of ​​32 hectares.
