La Palma Island local government announced that curfews have been imposed in four settlements, affecting more than 3,000 people, due to the gas spread that started with the flow of lava from the new branch to the sea.
The Canary Islands Volcanic Emergency Planning agency also advised the public not to go out of their homes unless it is necessary, and to keep windows and doors closed, due to the increase in air pollution and gas emissions.
On the other hand, in the data updated by the European Union Satellite Imaging System (Copernicus), it was stated that the area covered by the lava from the volcano in the region increased to 1065 hectares.
The lava caused the destruction of 2,651 buildings, most of them houses, and partial damage to 95 buildings.
The width of the platform formed on the coast of the island increased up to 43 hectares with the flow of lava covering the 80-kilometer road in the region into the sea.
Between 900 and 1300 tons of sulfur dioxide continues to be emitted daily from the mouths of the volcano.
Cumbre Vieja Volcano, which has caused damage close to 900 million euros and left nearly 7 thousand people homeless in La Palma, has become the longest active volcano in the history of the island.
Experts do not expect the volcano to die out in the short term.
More than 5,200 earthquakes have occurred on the island since the volcano became active.
