We hope xilman and everyone there are OK!
We are fine and enjoying a ringside seat. It is about 5km due south of here. Lots of smoke visible from here but the low-level red bits are hidden by the ridge to the south. Noise sounds like a military jet engine off in the distance. About 300 people evacuated so far.

Local and Spanish national TV news stations are reporting nothing else.

Images and/or video later.

Great to hear you're okay Paul. Hope it's a wonderful spectacle.

That was taken within 5 minutes of the eruption starting.

The smoke pillar was much bigger and darker in colour after 20 minutes or so. Now just a grey cloud with no obvious movement but still a continuous roaring nose from outside.

About 3000 people evacuated so far.

Let's hope your dome remains ash-free.

The English language press now has the story too:

The weather forecast is for a light northerly wind.

Not really.

I grew up in areas with traffic noise which was comparable.

This is what the southern sky looked like on Sunday evening. It was pretty much the same last night.

Here is an interesting site about the lava flows:
https://elpais.com/ciencia/2021-09-2...ia-el-mar.html

On my stay last year I had a bungalow in Dos Pinos. That's only 2-3 km from the current lava flows and on the edge of the risk zone.
