Madrid, Lava continued to flow slowly from a volcano that erupted in Spain’s Canary Islands off northwest Africa. The head of the regional government said today he expects no injuries to people in the area after about 5,000 were evacuated.

Lava was flowing on the island of La Palma toward the sea, moving at 700 meters per hour, according to the Canary Islands Volcanology Institute.

The lava was moving in two streams through a mostly unpopulated area, local officials said. Around 100 houses were destroyed, private Spanish news agency Europa Press reported.

The last eruption on La Palma 50 years ago lasted just over three weeks. The last eruption on all the Canary Islands occurred underwater off the coast of El Hierro island in 2011. It lasted five months, the Associated Press (AP) news reported.
