Residents of La Palma have been advised to remain indoors as white-hot magma spews deadly poisonous fumes.

Residents in four La Palma municipalities have been advised to evacuate due to fears of inhaling harmful gases released by the volcano.

They’ve been told to use tape and moist cloths to close doors and windows, and to use face coverings to protect their nose and mouth.

This comes after the volcano’s lava reached the sea 10 days after it originally erupted, blasting a 50-meter-high lava pyramid into the sky.

A 3.5-kilometer exclusion zone has been established around the point where the lava entered the water.

So yet, no injuries have been recorded.

The lava that has flowed into the sea has produced a platform that is over half a kilometer broad.

As additional lava flows into the sea, this will continue to increase.

The platform “generates clouds of gases in contact with the water,” according to Vicente Soler of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC).

This could be hazardous to people’s health, which is why authorities have advised people not to approach the event to see it.
