A house is covered with ash from a volcano that continues to erupt on La Palma in Spain's Canary Islands on Oct. 30, 2021. In Spain’s Canary Islands, the first eruption in half a century of the Cumbre Vieja volcano began on Sept. 19. By mid-November, lava had engulfed over 2,500 acres (1,000 hectares), and ash covered one-tenth of the island of La Palma, including these homes, seen on Oct. 30, in the evacuation zone.
