Fresh evacuations were ordered for La Palma residents on September 24 as authorities reported intensifying explosions at the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish island, and the opening of a new vent at the site.

The Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (INVOLCAN) measured an increase in explosive activity on Friday afternoon. The agency later confirmed that a new vent emitting volcanic material had opened.

This infrared footage taken by INVOLCAN on Friday shows “current activity and the lava flows coming from the two brand new eruptive vents,” it said in a tweet.
