An erupting volcano on La Palma in the Spanish Canary Islands has forced authorities to evacuate another village in the path of lava gushing towards the sea, APA reports citing BBC.
The evacuation of El Paso was ordered after lava started spewing from a new crack in the Cumbre Vieja volcano.
More than 6,000 people have fled from lava that has buried hundreds of homes since the eruption began on Sunday.
Four earthquakes hit the island shortly after the new eruption vent opened.
Local officials said the lava could trigger a chemical reaction that causes explosions and the release of toxic gasses when it reaches the sea.
Marine authorities have established an exclusion zone of two nautical miles (3.7km) at sea, in the area where the lava is heading.
