Over 700 residents on the Spanish island of La Palma were ordered to abandon their homes on Tuesday as red-hot lava advanced towards their neighborhood. According to the Canary Islands Volcanic Emergency Plan, those in La Laguna were told to evacuate with their belongings and pets, as a river of molten rock flowed from Cumbre Vieja, a volcano in La Palma’s northeastern region.
