La Palma, Cumbre Vieja Volcano Euroption - Aftermath - 4K
AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Top AirVuz contributor Enrico Pescantini brings us this fantastic drone video of the aftermath of a large volcanic eruption in Spain's Canary Islands. The eruption occurred in the last months of 2021 on the volcanic ridge of Cumbre Vieja on the island of La Palma, the northwesternmost of this archipelago located off the coast of North Africa. The eruption, the longest in the recorded history of the island, forced the evacuation of 7k people and covered about four square mi. (around 10 square km) with molten lava.

The impressive eruption of volcano Cumbre Vieja hit the island of La Palma at the end of 2021. For 3 months the lava river destroyed over 3000 buildings, 90 kilometers of roads and endless hectares of banana plantations, leaving more than 2000 people homeless. The landscape changed completely by a 15-meters layer of lava rock, and by thousands of tons of volcanic ash, that covers the land with a grey blanket. The houses that survived are often cut off from the rest of the island, leaving them isolated in a black smoking desert. A breathtaking and terrible show of strength of Mother Nature. Video shot in early march 2022, with DJI Mavic 2 PRO.
