If you are questioning: What happened?
Lava flowed down the mountain and through villages after the crack opened in the Cumbre Vieja volcano on 19 September, throwing jets of lava and ash into the air.
The red-hot liquid rock destroyed everything in its path – empty villages, schools, and hundreds of homes – before reaching the sea 10 days later.
More than 6,000 people have been evacuated, including 400 tourists who were taken to the neighbouring island of Tenerife.
La Palma, one of the most western and smallest of the Canary Islands, is known for not being as “touristy” as some of its neighbours.
Images from the island showed the lava – molten rock which turns black when exposed to the air – engulfing communities, but sparing some buildings. Many have lost everything they own.
