The volcano Cumbre Vieja has been spewing lava since last weekend. According to media reports, around 350 houses, including schools, have been destroyed since then. In the meantime, around 166 hectares of land are said to be covered by the lava.

Meanwhile, meteorologists are warning that sulfur clouds could move to Central Europe and thus to Germany as a result of the volcanic eruption. This is expected to be the case on Sunday (September 26th). However, the concentration is so low that it poses no danger.
