Ten days after the eruption began, the lava flow from the volcano has washed ashore after razing hundreds of houses and forming a slowly spreading river of lava.

Tuesday afternoon it had overcome the last obstacle on the mountain of Todoque. Afterwards, the lava has passed over banana plantations and has crossed the coastal road before coming into contact with the sea after 11.00pm.
