La Palma: lava envelops more buildings on the Spanish island

Lava from the Cumbre Vieja volcano, which has been erupting since September 19, has destroyed more homes and buildings.

Earlier this week, two new vents that opened in the volcano prompted more eruptions. A local volcano expert has said the newly opened fissures have partially collapsed, causing lava to flow in multiple directions.

Authorities have closed the local airport for the second time since the volcano began to erupt.
