La Palma volcano: residents told to lock down as volcano lava pours into sea

Authorities in Spain's Canary Islands told residents on the western coast of La Palma to lock down and seal doors and windows with tape and wet towels to ward off toxic gases spewed by lava from the Cumbre Vieja volcano. Incandescent lava gushing from the volcano for 10 days poured down a cliff into the sea early on Wednesday (September 29) in the Playa Nueva area, sending big clouds of white steam and toxic gases billowing into the air.
