The answer:

LA PALMA ISLAND

La Palma, is an island in Spain, part of the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean.
Its surface area: 708.32 km2
Its population: 100,000 inhabitants
Its most populous city: Los Llanos de Aridane
Its capital: Santa Cruz de La Palma.

A volcanic eruption (of the Cumbre Vieja) on the island of La Palma began Saturday, September 19, 2021, after 50 years of calm. A six-meter-high lava flow devoured homes, infrastructure and farmland on its way to the ocean. It risks causing enormous damage and radical changes to the geological, biological, economic and demographic structure in the island of La Palma.
