The volcano at La Palma.
Today, Spanish authorities announced that the volcanic eruption at La Palma is officially over. But the effects of the outbreak will be felt for a while longer. That is the opinion of Björn Lund, volcanologist and seismologist at Uppsala University.
The eruption, which began on September 19, is the first since 1971 on the island. A large number of buildings, infrastructure and homes have been destroyed. Around 7,000 people were evacuated, but no one has died.
“It has worked very well with rescue efforts and the entire alarm system. It was seen that there was an outbreak going on “, says Björn Lund.
