Drone videos acquired by IGN on September 25, 2021, show unique close-up views of erupting vents at Cumbre Vieja volcano.

After the intensification of activity observed over the past couple of days, volcanic tremor and strombolian explosive activity have almost disappeared on September 27.

Ash emissions have also decreased today, rising up to 1.5 km (5 000 feet) a.s.l., as of 11:00 UTC. This, however, does not mean the eruption is over.

513 homes were destroyed as well as 18.9 km (11.7 miles) of roads.

In addition, 1 507 ha (3 723 acres) were covered in ash.

Lapilli was reported in Santa Cruz de La Palma, about 11 km (6.8 miles) from the volcano.
