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.
