La Cumbre Volcano on uninhabited Galapagos Island erupts, sends lava flowing to the sea | Oneindia

In the remote Galapagos Islands, the dormant La Cumbre volcano on Fernandina Island has roared back to life, casting a fiery glow across the darkened sky as molten lava cascades down its slopes towards the ocean.

The eruption, which commenced shortly after midnight on Saturday, marks a significant event according to experts from Ecuador's Geophysical Institute, possibly rivalling the intensity of its last major eruption back in 2017.

Standing at a height of 1,476 metres, this volcanic giant's latest eruption comes just two years after its previous outburst in 2020.
