I know! It can quickly become addictive! It would be great to watch it from another perspective though. We seem to be watching from the same camera for over a week!

Yeah, I was thinking the top one seemed to be more active these last few days. Also have the impression that the lava is flowing faster, but some of that might be a trick of the camera settings.

This volcano just keeps giving and giving! Some pour on this evening! You would have to worry for the inhabitants below!

You might want to pace yourself, quodec! :D It's expected to keep giving for another 40 days yet.

And there are no (longer) inhabitants below - they've all been gone since the eruption began. Unless you're talking about some of the wildlife that'd struggle to move fast. Watching a few minutes of the daytime feed earlier, I noticed that all the trees on the nearby mountainside were distinctly orangey brown, unlike those on the hills further away.

Some drone footage giving a couple of different perspectives on the scene downwind from the fissures.



When this is all over, you'd wonder how anyone with one of the few houses that have been spared destruction would move on, e.g. the one seen at 3:10-3:20. Would you even try to go back and give it a good clean? Would you try to re-establish services, or opt for off-grid future? Could you cope with a lava field as a view from your front windows instead of a lush landscape?

Apparently not - was looking at some of the footage posted by Instituto Geológico y Minero de España today, and reading their video notes; and it seems that the lava from the second (and third?) fissure is indeed less viscous than that which came from the first eruption.

Unfortunately, the channel doesn't invite comments, so I'm left wondering if basic physics applies in this case, and this implies that the freer-flowing lava is coming out at a higher temperature? Which would mean it's coming from deeper down and ... what's the likely effect of that on the duration/severity of the eruption?

Not sure if this was posted already. Nice drone footage of the area going out to sea. Wonder is there anyone under them large mesh covered areas picking fruit as this goes on.

No. All evacuated. Killer fumes. Usually bananas growing under cover, sometimes tomatoes.

Some pictures posted over on pprune by a Canarian based photographer e.g. https://www.pprune.org/jet-blast/642769 ... st11119113

Some good scenes from the above live feed tonight. Lava flowing very quickly.

Stats are interesting at the bottom of the screen - 66 cubic metres a second. 106107100 cubic metres of lava since the eruption began.

In cement truck terms that's a total of 13,263,387 large 8 cubic metre cement lorries :D

just thinking...if that lava could be piped to a conveyor belt of giant cinder block moulds a vast number of very large blocks could be produced for just about nothing every day 8-)

Pipe it to Ireland, we could use it as filling for all the roads promised in the new National Development plan :lol:

Good thinking :lol: . It's very light and porous, I brought home a piece from the Idaho lava field. :twisted:

I have half of Tenerife lying about the house - a legacy from my ex - having never been there myself. Give me the peace and quiet of the Great Saltee or Cape Clear any day, and you're unlikely to be disturbed by volcanic activity in either place.
