La Palma volcano intensifies, causes earthquakes nearby - DW News.

Red-hot lava is still shooting into the air from a volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma. During a visit to the island, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez pledged government aid to rebuild, even as there's no sign of the eruption diminishing.
The volcano has been spewing molten rock into the air for weeks.
In the smoldering light of day, you can barely see through the smoke and the burning ash.
The volcano has burst back into life after 50 years, and some of the residents are trying their best to take it all in their stride.
The Cumbre Vieja volcano has already destroyed almost a thousand buildings, and the lava continues to threaten nearby communities.
Spain's government has offered support, and is set to approve more than 200 million euros in aid this week.
The island's residents have already received some emergency funds: Immediate assistance has been provided for those who have lost their homes.
But this is an island that relies heavily on tourism. Something the local government has been keen to emphasize.
The explosive activity in the vents of the volcano intensified on Sunday, causing several minor earthquakes nearby. So far, no casualties have been reported – thanks, mainly, to speedy evacuation efforts.
