The emission of sulfur dioxide (SO2) associated with the volcanic plume continues to be high, with values ​​between 9 000 and 13 000 tons per day, but its evolution over time reflects a downward trend.

Regarding seismicity, it remains low compared to previous weeks and continues to be located in the same areas, at depths between 10 and 15 km (6.2 – 9.3 miles) and greater than 20 km (12.4 miles).

Spanish Department of Homeland Security said a navy ship is scheduled to arrive to La Palma today and help farmers affected by the eruption to tend to their crops.
