March 04, 2024

A volcano on an uninhabited island of Ecuador's famous Galapagos archipelago is spewing lava, authorities said Sunday, potentially threatening an array of unique animal species. The La Cumbre volcano on the island of Fernandina blew its top late Saturday, the South American country's Geophysical Institute said. La Cumbre, which stands 1,463 meters (4,799 feet) high, has erupted three times previously since 2017. La Cumbre has the highest eruption rate of all volcanos in the archipelago, which is a favorite with tourists. The Institute advised tourists to stay away if any lava does enter the sea.
