Drone Shot Shows Volcanic Cone Collapsing in La Palma.

Drone video from Spain's Geographical and Mining Institute shows Cumbre Vieja's volcanic cone collapsing in La Palma, Saturday, September 25.

READ MORE: Fresh volcanic eruptions in Spain's Canary Islands prompted the cancellation of flights, airport authorities said Friday, the first since the Cumbre Vieja volcano came to life again.

New evacuations were also ordered as large explosions and new openings were reported at the volcano on La Palma island on Friday.

A large cloud of thick, black ash spewed into the air, forcing several airlines to call off flights.

La Palma had six inter-island flights scheduled for Friday operated by Binter, Canaryfly and Air Europa, while the national carrier Iberia had a single service from Madrid to the mainland. All were scrapped.

They were the first flights to be canceled since the volcano erupted on Sunday.

"It is not yet possible to say when we can resume flights," Spanish carrier Binter said on Twitter.

Authorities also ordered new evacuations, adding to the 6,100 people forced to leave to area this week, including 400 tourists.
