The volcano has been vigorously erupting for close to four weeks now with flowing lava rivers, boulders the size of buildings and ash clouds, leaving a path of destruction in its wake.
In total, around 656 hectares and 1,458 buildings have been damaged, with the lava speed only advancing not slowing down according to CSIC geologist Raúl Pérez.
On Friday morning, around 60 earthquakes were felt on the island. Seismic activity is common after a large eruption.
