SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Oct 15 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The two lava fronts that are advancing to the south of the La Laguna mountain, in the municipality of Los Llanos de Aridane, and that forced the eviction of all the residents of the neighborhood, are tending to converge in a single wash and the forecast is that can reach the sea.
At a press conference, the technical director of Pevolca, Rubén Fernández, indicated that during the night these two fronts have flowed at high speed due to the fluidity of the flow, the magmatic contribution and the orography, reaching over 250 meters per hour. However, today the speed has decreased a lot and they are moving about 20 or 30 meters per hour.
Rubén Fernández has also reported the existence of another wash that has separated from these two fronts and that is running in a northwesterly direction towards La Laguna. Now you are on the El Cumplido road, at the height of number 22. The forecasts that scientists handle, depending on the orography of the area, is that it may tend to go along the north face of the mountain of La Laguna and that it does not run further to the northwest, so it would not affect that area of the neighborhood.
